The Plaza Upgrades InvoTech Uniform System


InvoTech Systems Inc. announced the recent upgrade of its Uniform System at The Plaza in New York.  The System installed at The Plaza manages the uniform inventory for 900 employees.

“Our property has utilized InvoTech’s Uniform System for over 10 years,” says Rich Francis, director of information technology. The Plaza.  “The upgrade process and installation was simple, no new training was needed and most importantly upgrading did not interrupt with our daily operations.”

The UHF-RFID upgrade will provide additional cost-saving benefits by automating manual tasks that were previously required. Specialized waterproof RFID tags are discreetly attached to each uniform piece. The InvoTech Uniform System automatically tracks RFID tagged uniform pieces when issued to employees and as it is shipped to and received back from the laundry. Previously, garments were manually scanned one-at-a-time, a time consuming process that now will be eliminated. The RFID technology allows for multiple uniforms to be processed simultaneously and automatically, and the recordkeeping is also automated.

“Our Uniform System establishes a perpetual uniform inventory and has extensive reporting capabilities to determine and forecast future purchases,” says Oswald Lares, director of sales at InvoTech Systems. “The system tracks uniform inventory without manually sorting and hand-counting. Laundry expenses are easy to monitor, lowering laundry expenses and labor costs.”

The InvoTech Uniform System is a paperless “green” system. The System includes an electronic signature capture terminal that records employee signatures when uniforms are assigned, which eliminates the need to print reports to obtain signatures. In addition, all system reports can be viewed on the screen or generated to PDF files to be easily viewed or shared, which also facilitates a paperless “green” system.

InvoTech Systems is a provider of advanced Linen Management, Laundry and Uniform Systems that integrate the latest RFID technology to increase profitability for hotels, resorts, cleanrooms, laundries, medical centers, convention centers, casinos, theme parks and sports arenas.
