BackgroundFor 90 years, local and international guests have been checking in at Stayokay for new adventures and experiences. With approximately 1 million overnight stays per year, Stayokay is the largest provider of budget accommodation in the Netherlands. Stayokay cooperates with Hostelling International; a network of more than 4,000 hostels worldwide.
ChallengesStayokay consists of 20 hostels throughout the Netherlands that all want to communicate specific information with their guests. This can vary from new menus, a flyer on the elevator which is out of order or one that announces events. Hostels make these materials themselves, mainly in Word with Word-Art. They don't fit within the branding and the desired look of Stayokay. In some cases, the hostels had the posters designed by a designer, but this process was often slow and, moreover, costly.
- An online portal where branches can create both online and offline promotional materials within the Stayokay brand identity;
- An image bank where all valuable brand assets, such as logos and photography, can be centralised.
- Different user group rights for locations and external parties
In the Stayokay brand portal, we combine Digital Asset Management with Branded Templates. The image bank is filled with brand identity assets like logos and different imagery that differ from hostel interior and exterior images to images of hostel activities or food and beverage.
