Improving hotel cleanliness — and guest satisfaction — by off-loading mundane tasks from cleaning staff.

Recently, the Hilton Garden Inn in Gilroy, CA, teamed up with SoftBank Robotics America (SBRA), a global innovator in service automation, to introduce Whiz — an autonomous vacuum sweeper — into their cleaning staff. With Whiz focusing on the repetitive labor of vacuuming open areas, the Hilton team was able to focus on more skilled detail work, improving the overall appearance of the hotel.
