TAGSYS RFID, the leading provider of item-level inventory management systems that streamline the supply chain, has announced a partnership with Hilden, the UK’s leading supplier of linen products and related services.

The partnership will see Hilden become the first company to offer RFID-enabled textile products to its customer base of hotel and hospitality clients in the UK and Ireland. Hilden, part of Vision Support Services, will leverage TASGYS’ 15+years of expertise in RFID technology and its proven track record in the textile services market to help its customers better monitor and control linen use.

With the RFID-enabled products, Hilden’s customers can take advantage of TAGSYS’ item-level inventory management system based on the industry’s most complete and scalable RFID-based infrastructure.

The system, developed specifically for the textile services industry, includes RFID technologies, materials, software and consulting services to satisfy the entire management and logistics process of textile items from, to, and within the laundry and its customers, all from a single source.

TAGSYS’ item-level UHF tracking capabilities ensure higher levels of inventory visibility and address major challenges in the hospitality industry with regard to linen usage, including:

  • Substantial        -           loss of inventory through theft, leakage and misplacement
  • Unnecessary     -           hoarding of inventory
  • Inaccurate        -           or incomplete information on available inventory
  • Rising               -           operating costs due to all of the above, plus the manual            effort required      to track inventory

As part of the agreement, TAGSYS will provide Hilden with UHF RFID tags in the form of discreet woven labels, which can be seamlessly integrated into textile items. This unique application of RFID technology offers the best read performance, resilience and quality/price ratio on the market compared to other industrial tags. It can sustain pressure of up to 60 bars and a temperature of 200°C (392°F). It is guaranteed for 200 cycles or three years.

Rod Nutter, Commercial Director at Hilden says, “We are delighted to have secured the partnership with TAGSYS; they bring a wealth of experience from their 15 years of implementing RFID tracking systems at multiple sites, combined with their extensive research and development program. We are confident together we can continue to innovate into the future.”
