Meet Crowne Plaza's Dash by Savioke

Savioke is proud to announce that another innovative hotel is using our autonomous delivery robots to provide expedient and delightful service to its guests.  The Crowne Plaza San Jose-Silicon Valley is the latest hotel property to begin using Savioke's Relay, which they call Dash. Dash is part of the Crowne Plaza front desk team and specializes in delivering items to guests in their rooms. Dash allows the other members of the front desk team to focus on value-added customer service that only people can provide. 
 
"We pride ourselves in making business travel work for our guests, and Dash will further enhance the guest experience through providing quick and seamless delivery of snacks, toothbrushes and other amenities to hotel guests," said Winnie Kwok, GM of Crowne Plaza San Jose-Silicon Valley. "Located in the heart of Silicon Valley, our hotel is making use of the best technology innovation that Silicon Valley has to offer."

1000 Kilometers and counting

We're proud to report on some big milestones at Savioke. In the course of doing over 4000 deliveries, our robots have now traversed over 1000 km autonomously indoors, well over half of that on trips involving elevator rides. We have also retired the last SaviOne robot from the field, so all hotel deliveries going forward will be done by our new Relay robots. 

Thanks to all those guests of the Cupertino Aloft and Silicon Valley Aloft hotels who have tried the Botlr robot delivery service, taken selfies with the robots, and posted very nice Trip Advisor reviews mentioning them. And a special thanks to the Aloft staff members who tirelessly answer the questions "what is that?" and "what does it do?" with "try it!"

We can't wait for the day when there are thousands of Relay robots doing deliveries all around the world, but right now we're celebrating this important milestone along the way.

Robots in Texas? You Betcha

Savioke will be in Austin, Texas from June 15-18 at the Hospitality Industry Technology Exposition & Conference (HITEC 2015).   Relay will be on hand to dazzle and delight the attendees, and demonstrate the future of autonomous delivery.  

Stop by to meet Savioke representatives and take a selfie with Relay at Savioke's Booth 955 at the Austin Convention Center.

Also, hear CEO Steve Cousins on Wednesday, June 17th at 4 pm as he discusses how hotels have been using Savioke robots, the impact on OSAT, and what to expect in 2015 and beyond.
