Hospitality laundry and RFID

Hospitality laundry is an integral part of the guest experience. From luxurious bedding to fresh towels, clean and well-maintained linen is key to a hotel’s success. However, managing laundry and linen inventory can be a cumbersome and labour-intensive task. That’s where RFID technology comes in, offering a streamlined solution to manage inventory and assets. 

How does it work?

So, what exactly is an RFID linen, laundry, and asset management system? Simply put, it’s a technology that uses radio waves to identify and track objects in real time. The system consists of hardware, software, tags, and data, all working together to provide a comprehensive solution for laundry and linen inventory management. 

In the hospitality industry, RFID technology offers specific functionalities for each environment, including laundry, site, and On-Premises Laundry.

In laundry operations, RFID technology can track item movement, rewashing, mending, general item movement, condemnation, and dispatch.  

On the customer site, RFID can receive laundry, issue to employees, return dirty items, and send to laundry. 

One of the unique features of IntelTag’s RFID solutions is the ability to digitise reporting and analytics. With real-time information at your fingertips, you can make informed decisions about your inventory and assets. The system provides customizable dashboards for operations, loss management, demand management, lifecycle management, employee management, security exits, and perpetual stocktake.

One particular use case for RFID technology in the hospitality industry is discreet security exit monitors. Asset management is a crucial aspect of RFID technology in the hospitality industry. These monitors provide an added layer of security and allow hotels to see through guest luggage without opening their bags ensuring that your assets are accounted for and secure. With increased security and accountability, hotels can ensure the safety of their guests while providing a seamless experience.
