Shiji and Trustangle elevate NEOM’s OAK Village with the Shiji Enterprise Platform


Saudi Arabia, February 24, 2024 – In an innovative step forward for the dynamic and adaptive accommodations sector, Shiji Group, together with trustangle, has announced the successful implementation of the Shiji Enterprise Platform at OAK Village, located within the groundbreaking city of NEOM. This deployment signifies a leap in providing flexible, scalable technology solutions tailored to the unique concept of OAK Village, a pioneering campus-style property designed to accommodate the evolving needs of international consultants, contractors, designers, and management teams involved in NEOM’s expansive development projects. 

OAK Village, which comprises 440 cabin-type rooms within the city of Al Bad’, represents a new era of adaptable living spaces that can swiftly respond to the demands of its transient population. Designed with sustainability and efficiency at its core, these cabins provide a bespoke living experience for guests whose average stay spans 50 days, offering amenities such as single-gender fitness centres, an entertainment centre, and a 24-hour restaurant under the management of OAK Group. Recognizing the necessity for a Property Management System (PMS) that matches the agility of OAK Village’s operational model, Shiji and trustangle have customized the deployment of Shiji’s Enterprise Platform to offer unparalleled flexibility. This cloud-based solution is not only capable of rapid deployment and adjustment in line with OAK Village’s innovative concept but also offers the scalability required to expand or reduce its footprint, and even relocate with minimal disruption. 

“The unique challenge presented by OAK Village required a PMS solution that was not just efficient and secure but also highly adaptable to the project’s dynamic nature,” explained a spokesperson for OAK Group. “With Shiji’s Enterprise Platform, we have a technology partner that understands the need for rapid scalability and flexibility, ensuring that we can continue to offer exceptional guest experiences even as our operational requirements evolve.” 

Shiji’s Enterprise Platform is distinguished by its adaptability, robust security features, and cloud-based architecture, making it an ideal choice for properties like OAK Village that demand quick adaptability to changing circumstances. Its user-friendly interface and real-time analytics further empower staff to deliver superior service, aligning with the project’s innovative and future-focused ethos. 

“Collaborating with OAK Village on this deployment has been an opportunity for Shiji to showcase the versatility and strength of our cloud-based solutions,” said Kevin King, CEO of Shiji International. “Our platform is designed to support the dynamic needs of modern hospitality ventures, enabling them to thrive in environments that demand rapid change and scalability.”

This strategic implementation marks a significant milestone in the evolution of hospitality technology, offering a blueprint for future developments in similarly ambitious and flexible projects.
