he hospitality industry is a competitive market that requires hotels to provide the best experience possible for their guests. One area that often gets overlooked is the management of assets such as TV Remotes, kettles and other room inventory. Hotels can benefit from an RFID Asset Management System provided by companies like IntelTag RFID Solutions.

What is an RFID Asset Management System?

An RFID Asset Management System consist of hardware, software, tags, and data. It is designed to track and manage linen, garments, and inventory using RFID technology. 

How does an RFID Asset Management Solution work?

In addition to managing linen and laundry, hotel asset management includes tracking various items that are found in guest rooms such as pillows, TV remotes, paintings, pictures, hair dryers, and kettles. A RFID tag is attached to inventory and linen, encoded with the item description, thus identifying the item. 

These items can easily be packed into suitcases by guests, leading to significant replacement costs for the hotel. With an RFID asset management system, hotels can track these items in real-time, reducing replacement costs and improving overall operational efficiency. 

IntelTag provides an RFID Asset Management Solution that offers a discreet exit monitor that is strategically placed at reception or other exposed areas. These monitors prevent assets such as linen, garments, and inventory from leaving the hotel premises without authorization. Additionally, hotels can ensure that guests have access to the amenities they need during their stay, enhancing the overall guest experience.
