Between the hospitality industry’s goal of making each guest touch point seamless and the increase in what a smartphone can do, a company called handy has designed a device to be purchased by hotels and placed in rooms for the hotel guests to use for free. Free Wi-Fi has become customary in many hotels, but handy lets guests use the smartphone for much more. The device provides guests with access to unlimited calls and texts, recommendations for local attractions and direct communication with room service, and it can even be used as a room key.

Already used in over 20 cities in major hotel chains like Ritz Carlton and Hilton, the company is a prime example of understanding the distinct needs of two different customers and bringing value to both sides simultaneously. handy is based in Hong Kong.
