InvoTech has launched the new UHF-RFID technology for tracking linen and uniform inventories, for maintaining proper PAR levels, and managing laundry activity without physical contact. InvoTech provides a completely contactless solution for everyone in wardrobe and housekeeping operations dealing with linens, uniforms, and laundry activity.

Using the UHF-RFID linen system allows us to manage 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, according to InvoTech.

The new RFID system helps distribute uniforms and transition employees safely back to work without physical contact using the UHF-RFID Uniform System, helps in 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, InvoTech said in a media statement.

There are five easy steps when implementing the InvoTech UHF-RFID systems to improve performance whilst respecting the safety of the staff in a company. First one is to 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 three years or 200 washing cycles. The second step is to create an 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, InvoTech said.

The third step is to 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.

The fourth step is to 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, one 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. The last step is 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.

Implementing the system provides 100 per cent reduction in non-theft related losses, cuts labour costs by 50 per cent, and provides control of outside laundry charges. Eliminate traditional labour-intensive tasks, such as manual sorting, counting and recordkeeping to reduce operational costs. The use of the Portable Handheld RFID Reader with InvoTech Mobile Software eliminates the need for physical contact. The InvoTech systems can be easily configured and scaled to meet customer requirements. A typical system installation takes from three to five days. InvoTech installers complete the installation, implementation, and training.

“We continuously innovate and deliver solutions to our customers which are in keeping with the new hygiene norms and sanitary guidelines for a safe working environment. We make it simple, and our system helps operations run smoothly and safely using UHF-RFID technology. It helps to manage laundry activity featuring reduced contact with textile items and keeping a safe distance from soiled and/or clean linens,” Oswald Lares, director of sales and marketing at InvoTech said in a statement.
