HAPI, a data streaming, integration and enrichment platform designed to solve the hotel industry's rapidly expanding data management challenges, has been credited with streamlining the industry rollout for STAYmyway, a new digital key solution that does not require lock replacement.
STAYmyway isintroducing a solution for smartphone-based access control - an area that is currently experiencing increased adoption. Working with HAPI has enabled the company to direct development efforts to innovate further with mobile check-in and ID verification.
The STAYmyway solution enables hotels to cost-effectively implement mobile key functionality, allowing guests to open their hotel room doors, as well as access additional common areas, using only their personal smartphone. Most lock providers currently require a full hardware replacement to enable mobile key functionality. The STAYmyway solution provides a cost-effective alternative that works with any existing door locks, and also allows for digitalization of access management. In addition, STAYmyway's open API libraries allow for integration to the hotel PMS, as well as with a hotel's existing mobile app.
Developed by hotel technology innovators, the HAPI data streaming platform runs on the AWS infrastructure and leverages the same highly scalable, distributed and open source technology platforms, such as Apache Kafka, that are used by the world's largest social media and business services, to which multiple layers of encryption, authentication and governance are added.
