Luxury Hotel Simplifies Inventory Control with RFID

| January 28, 2014

Grand Beach Hotel Surfside has installed InvoTech's UHF-RFID Linen System to protect the property’s high-value linen investment. T-Y Group provided the hotel with 50,000 linen items pre-tagged with durable UHF-RFID laundry tags to enable instant, simplified linen inventory and tracking. InvoTech is a leading provider of systems that integrate the latest RFID technology to increase profitability for hotels, casinos, hospitals, and commercial laundry operators.  
 
The Grand Beach Hotel Surfside in Miami had its grand opening in November 2013. InvoTech supplied 50,000 UHF-RFID laundry tags to T-Y Group, which were sewn into the linens (towels, sheets, and pillowcases) and delivered to the hotel for use prior to opening. T-Y Group provided the Grand Beach Hotel Surfside with a linen inventory data file that instantly updates the hotel’s InvoTech system for fast, easy implementation. The InvoTech partnership with T-Y Group enabled the hotel to use the linens and system at once to obtain its benefits immediately. InvoTech’s UHF-RFID Linen System saves money and increases profitability by simplifying accurate linen operations with total control and automated recordkeeping.
 
InvoTech’s system monitors the location of each tagged linen piece to cut lost-item cost and to provide real-time information on linen inventory levels.
 
InvoTech supplied Fujitsu UHF-RFID laundry tags to T-Y Group to pre-tag the linens. InvoTech installed its Linen System with a UHF-RFID Laundry Cart Reading Station and touch-screen monitor in the Grand Beach Hotel Surfside loading dock. The Reading Station instantly counts and records entire carts of both soiled laundry and clean linens from up to 8 feet away. InvoTech automates linen inventory tracking and recordkeeping for each item sent to the laundry and received clean, and provides accurate reports for laundry accountability. InvoTech also provided a UHF-RFID Linen Inventory Reading Station to monitor linen aging so the property can maintain high quality control standards for guests. InvoTech integrates Impinj UHF-RFID Speedway Revolution Readers for all fixed reading stations for performance and reliability. InvoTech also supplied a wireless handheld RFID reader to quickly monitor and maintain linen storeroom par stocks without hand counting to save time and ensure the property always has sufficient linens.
