Omnify was founded in 2016 by Manik Mehta and Kabandi Saikia. Omnify’s solution integrates with existing websites to power up online reservations, contactless liability forms, capacity management, and membership access management, among other features. The startup went through multiple pivots to deliver a solution that could work across categories, including recreational facilities, clubs, sports institutions, hospitality, wellness, as well as individual coaches. It is used by over 5,000 businesses across 50 countries.
Manik Mehta, Co-founder and CEO, Omnify said, “The investment brings us a step closer to our goal of empowering service business owners around the world with a single platform, much like how Shopify did for ecommerce.”
Kabandi Saikia, Co-founder and COO, Omnify said, “Early this year, when most businesses struggled to stay afloat, we saw the opportunity to enable businesses to manage their capacities and build a hybrid online-offline model to survive the pandemic. We grew over 5x with the surge in demand and helped hundreds of businesses stay afloat and transition to adapt to the new normal.”
Omnify plans on using the investment to grow its team, as well as invest in its product, technology, and growth.
