InvoTech / T-Y Group partnership saves hotel money, reduces labor
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 and T-Y Group made the implementation of the InvoTech Linen System easy for the Grand Beach Hotel Surfside. The system protects our assets and ensures that our high-value quality linens are always available for our hotel guests,” said Jean-Michel Kling, general manager of Grand Beach Hotel Surfside. 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 System is accurate and easy for staff to use
“T-Y Group installs the UHF-RFID tags securely and invisibly in their high-quality linens. We provide T-Y Group with a system to pre-define each item of linen inventory for customers before delivery,” said Jeff Welles, president of InvoTech Systems, Inc. “Our clients benefit because they have reliable, accurate linen identification without work from their staff to define the linen inventory to their InvoTech system themselves. T-Y Group provided the Grand Beach Hotel Surfside with a linen inventory data file. It was a very easy system implementation that ensures an accurate inventory and recordkeeping.”
“InvoTech’s Linen System is accurate and easy-to-use. It provides our customers with simplified, money-saving automated control of the high-quality linens that we provide,” said Danny Tuaty, president of T-Y Group.
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.
InvoTech has hundreds of satisfied clients worldwide in more than 30 countries, including hotels, resorts, casinos, theme parks, stadiums, arenas, convention centers, medical centers, cleanrooms, and laundries.
