TrayAway saves hotels time and money by automating the room service tray retrieval process. 
TrayAway enhances the hotel guest experience and ensures beautiful hotel hallways are never cluttered with dirty room service trays.  TrayAway saves hotels time and money by helping automate room service tray retrieval.
Using a combination of hardware (Internet of Things) and software (mobile/desktop), TrayAway keeps track of all tray and trolley locations and their duration of use. When the guest is done with their meal, they simply click a TrayAway device to notify the staff for pickup.

What's Innovative About Their Solution?

99% of hotels in the world still rely on pen & paper to track all trays and trolley's throughout their hotel.  They also provide guest's with small paper tent cards requesting they "call room service for retrieval" when they're done.  In 2019 guests do not want to call from a landline telephone for any reason.  

TrayAway provides a small hardware device so when the guest is done they can simply click a button.   TrayAway automates the tracking process on the back end so everything is managed much more effectively.
