Guests at the exclusive Shinagawa Prince Hotel in Tokyo will soon see Relay zipping around the halls delivering packages, food, and other items directly to their rooms.

Savioke partner, NESIC, announced that it is deploying a Relay robot in the luxury Shinagawa Prince Hotel starting in October, marking Savioke’s first official Relay installation in a Japanese hotel.

Japan represents a great opportunity for Relay and we expect to announce more regional deployments in the upcoming months, not only in hotels, but logistics, high-rise residences, and office buildings, as well.  Earlier this year, Savioke partnered with NEC Networks & System Integration Corp. (NESIC), the leading systems integrator in Japan, to distribute Relay in the Japanese market.

The Shinagawa Prince hotel is a large hotel just a few minutes walk from Tokyo Shinagawa station. The hotel complex offers myriad business and leisure amenities, such as a pool, indoor golf and tennis courts, a bowling alley, multiple restaurants, cafes, an onsite childcare facility, meeting rooms, and a karaoke bar. The hotel also offers direct access to a shopping mall, aquarium, multi-screen movie theater, and concert venue. Now, the Shinagawa Prince Hotel can add a delivery robot to its long list of guest services.
