Hospitality Industry’s New HAPI Place
Data Travel LLC introduces a data streaming, integration and enrichment platform designed to solve the hotel industry's rapidly expanding data management challenges.
Named HAPI, which is short for Hospitality API, the new platform aggregates the data that is collected by disparate hotel systems and acts as a central hub for these hospitality data streams.
The HAPI data streaming platform is based on Apache Kafka, the same proven technology that runs social media and security-conscious business services such as LinkedIn, PayPal, Cisco and many others. To this proven foundation, multiple layers of encryption, authentication and governance are added to ensure maximum data security and efficiency.
HAPI PMS connectors consume PMS data and convert it into a simple common message type that can be enriched and then consumed by hotel companies and technology providers in a consistent fashion. In its simplest form, this protocol facilitates integrations for new technology vendors in a cost-effective way that accelerates adoption. By providing data enrichment, connection options, scalability and security, HAPI unleashes a potential for innovation that has never been seen before in the industry.
Nearly a dozen partners are already building connectors for the HAPI platform, including four PMS providers, and more are in development. The types of solutions consuming HAPI's enriched data streams today are CRM and guest service systems.
