For us, simplicity and convenience comes first, second and third. That means to make our service crazy easy to use for guests, hotel staff and our own operators.
Umbrella sharing is a fairly new concept, which is why we've made the interactions as simple as possible. Guests tap their credit card and an umbrella unlocks. When finished, just return the umbrella... What's not to like?
1. Our umbrella screens are made from rPET polyester, which is a type of plastic created from recycled post-consumer waste plastic.
2. Umbrella sharing is circular:
The more the umbrellas are used, the more income they create, which in return means that we are incentivized to make more durable umbrellas.
(our current umbrellas are already very sturdy, categorized as "storm proof"... but we're not done)
From cost to income
The revenues from our service is shared directly with the hotel/partner.
Yes, that means turning umbrellas from a costly hassle into an income generating convenience - for guests and for staff.
