Hoiio API Showcase: Hastify

September 06, 2012

Hey friends in Singapore,

Ever wish for a way to skip the queue during the busy lunch hour? Well, Hastify FastPass promises just that.


Hastify is a Singapore based Tech Startup focusing on F&B innovations. Their first product, FastPass, is e-ordering solutions for restaurants to grow their lunch time sales. For users, the main appeal of the service is to skip the lunch queue and save time.

Here’s how it works.

Yup. Simple and cool service created by a brilliant team with communications powered using Hoiio API.

My sister loves shopping and works in the town area. Often, she will have sandwiches for lunch so that she can skip the lunch queue and spend the time shopping instead. I am introducing her to Hastify so that she can have both a hot meal and lunch-time shopping. Cheers =)

Hey all drivers.

Will like to introduce you all to the Smart way to renew your car Insurance. Recently, I have also use this service to get new quotations for my 3 year old Kia Cerato Forte.

I am also glad that they are using the Hoiio API to empower their products. You see, to prevent the cute lady from losing her coolness and her nice voice, they have also setup a Number Authentications systems to filter the real human buyers from all the noises on the Internet. Pretty cool trick =)
