The patent-pending and fully automated cleaning method, Data Laundry, reviews key data points collected by dailypoint, merges duplicates, corrects mistakes from human errors and ultimately creates a single profile for each guest. The clean data is then pushed back to the PMS and stored in dailypoint so all data is up-to-date across sources, allowing hotels to have a single source of truth for all guest data. 

Finalist: TraknProtect Safety Button by TraknProtect


This safety button is designed to protect guest room attendants in the hospitality industry, where instances of sexual harassment and assault have become too common. When feeling threatened or uncomfortable, a housekeeper can press the safety button.
