We’re delighted to say we’ve been selected from hundreds of applicants to join the inaugural Oracle Startup Cloud Accelerator programme.

Run by members of Oracle’s research and development team, the programme provides mentoring from technical and business experts, state-of-the-art technology, a co-working space, access to Oracle customers, partners and investors, and free Oracle Cloud credits.

This is a huge opportunity and comes at a significant time in our growth:

  1. Following the Micros acquisition in 2014 ($5.3bn), Oracle continue to invest in hospitality & retail. Trail represents a new breed of startup built on consumer-grade technology.
  2. Offers access to a vast customer base (420k), and the opportunity to expand both across service verticals and into international markets
  3. Helps scale the product to meet demand, provides tighter integration with the Oracle suite, and opens innovation such as machine-learning and automation
  4. Mentorship and support as the team grows

The news was featured in leading industry newsletter Propel, who quoted co-founder Joe as saying

“We’re a young startup and the Oracle programme offers unrivalled global enterprise experience and support, helping take Trail up a gear during our first year of growth. From using machine-learning to derive the perfect service day to the ‘Internet of Things’ and automation of repetitive and mundane tasks, Oracle’s experts can help us tackle complexity and save teams time.

In return, Trail offers a means to deliver critical insights and actions to a young and highly mobile workforce — a way to offer enterprise tech to a whole section of the workforce previously out of reach.”

CloudPro have also carried the story, saying:

“Oracle has identified some key themes it wants to explore more — AI, machine learning and VR, which is why the companies who were selected were identified within these opportunities.”
