InvoTech installs automated system at 38th Hyatt property--"a celebration of luxury"
“Park Hyatt New York is a celebration of luxury, refinement and art in Manhattan. The property’s uniforms play an essential part,” said Oswald Lares, director of sales for InvoTech Systems. “Park Hyatt New York is the 38th Hyatt property to install our system to manage uniform operations, laundry, and distribution.”
RFID technology maintains a real-time inventory from distribution to laundry Park Hyatt New York’s InvoTech system interfaces with a White Conveyors U-Pick-It System that automates uniform distribution and quickly delivers the correct garments to Hyatt staff. The InvoTech Uniform System integrates UHF-RFID readers that scan durable waterproof UHF-RFID laundry tags for automated tracking and recordkeeping. Tags are attached to the uniforms before they were delivered to the property to make the system implementation and employee uniform fittings as smooth as possible.
