Canary Technologies Named to Fast Company’s 2023 List of the World’s Most Innovative Companies

March 2, 2023

SAN FRANCISCO, CA - Canary Technologies, the hospitality industry’s leading guest management system, has been named to Fast Company’s list of the World’s Most Innovative Companies for 2023. This year’s list highlights the businesses at the forefront of their respective industries. 

With a significant staffing shortage in the hospitality industry,Canary has invested heavily in new and existing product development to help hoteliers do more with less. This has included significantly expanding the capabilities of the company’s Contactless Check-In, Upselling and Guest Messaging solutions, and developing a new Digital Tipping product that has experienced rapid adoption at all types of lodging properties.

Canary now supports more than 20,000 hoteliers in more than 75 countries and is recognized as the industry benchmark for innovative guest-facing solutions. Canary’s hotel partners make more money, improve the guest experience, and reduce front desk work. 

Many of the most common technologies deployed by hotels are based on legacy solutions that have not seen significant or innovative updates in the past decade. Canary’s products modernize the standard hotel technology technology stack with a comprehensive suite of guest-facing, user-friendly solutions under one roof. 

“We are extremely proud that Canary has been named to Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies list for 2023.” said Harman Singh Narula, Co-Founder at Canary Technologies. “This recognition speaks volumes about our amazing team and the real-world value our products provide to our hotel customers. From creating more streamlined and personalized check-in processes to helping hoteliers improve employee retention with Digital Tipping, Canary is leading the charge to modernize hotel technology and we’re honored to be counted among so many other leaders in innovation.

“What a strange and thrilling year it has been to honor this year’s Most Innovative Companies. This year’s list compiles some of the most cutting-edge groundbreakers who are changing our world every single day, from legacy organizations like McDonald’s to upstarts like MrBeast and institutions such as NASA. Everyone on this list does something completely, uniquely different, yet, they all have one thing in common: innovation,” said Fast Company editor-in-chief Brendan Vaughan.

Fast Company will host its third annual Most Innovative Companies Summit on April 19 and 20.
