Safe back to work for hospitality with five step RFID solution

19 March 2021

InvoTech provides a completely contactless and safe solution for everyone in wardrobe and housekeeping operations dealing with linens, uniforms, and laundry activity in just five simple steps.

Using the UHF-RFID Linen System allows management of the entire inventory. Processing linen items and tracking daily movement is simple and safe. Record keeping is automated and linen items are identified by simply passing the textile items over a counter-top RFID antenna, a bulk reading station or using the InvoTech’s portable handheld RFID reader.

Operators can safely distribute uniforms and transition employees back to work without physical contact using the UHF-RFID Uniform System. Processing uniform transactions and recordkeeping is automated by simply passing the uniform items over a counter-top RFID antenna, a bulk reader station or using a portable handheld RFID reader.

Here are the 5 easy steps when implementing the InvoTech UHF-RFID Systems to improve performance whilst respecting the safety of your staff:

1. Attach Tags: RFID Tags are attached to each uniform and/or linen piece. These UHF-RFID laundry tags can be sewed in or heat sealed to textile items. They last up to 3 years or 200 washing cycles.

2. Create Inventory: To establish the inventory, information is entered into the system to identify and track each piece. Each individual item is linked to a unique UHF-RFID identifier.

3. Maintain PAR levels in Storerooms and Assigning Uniforms: Linen items are permanently tracked, quantities and types recorded as they are sent to the laundry and storerooms. Uniforms are assigned to employees using an electronic signature capture terminal that records employee signatures when uniforms are assigned. These procedures eliminate the need for physical contact and no paper is required to keep records and print reports.

4. Manage laundry activity: The InvoTech System tracks laundry activity by identifying each item sent to the laundry and each item returned clean. Without touching uniform or linen items and keeping a safe distance from soiled and/or clean. With the InvoTech System you can scan items at a safe distance (up to 6 feet), obtain an accurate count and automatically update inventory records of items sent to and received from the laundry.

5. Contactless Management: Total inventory control throughout the life of each textile item—from purchasing, daily use and laundry activity to final discard. The system knows exactly where all items are always. The InvoTech Systems provide more than 100 reports detailing all aspect of wardrobe and housekeeping operations, including laundry costs.
