The Grand Beach Hotel in Miami will use the UHF-RFID Linen System by InvoTech Systems, Inc. to protect the property's high-value linen investment.

T-Y Group provided the hotel with 50,000 linen items pretagged with UHF-RFID laundry tags to enable instant, simplified linen inventory and tracking. InvoTech is one of the leading providers of systems that integrate the latest RFID technology to increase profitability for hotels, casinos, hospitals and commercial laundry operators. 

InvoTech supplied 50,000 UHF-RFID laundry tags to T-Y Group, which were sewn into the linens (towels, sheets and pillowcases) and delivered to the hotel for use prior to the opening in November 2013. T-Y Group provided the Grand Beach Hotel Surfside with a linen inventory data file that instantly updates the hotel’s InvoTech system for fast implementation. The InvoTech partnership with T-Y Group enabled the hotel to use the linens and system at once to obtain its benefits immediately. InvoTech’s UHF-RFID linen system saves money and increases profitability by simplifying accurate linen operations with total control and automated recordkeeping.
“InvoTech and T-Y Group made the implementation of the InvoTech linen system easy for the Grand Beach Hotel Surfside," said Jean-Michel Kling, general manager of Grand Beach Hotel Surfside. "The system protects our assets and ensures that our high-value quality linens are always available for our hotel guests. InvoTech’s system monitors the location of each tagged linen piece to cut lost item cost and to provide real-time information on linen inventory levels.

“T-Y Group installs the UHF-RFID tags securely and invisibly in their high-quality linens," said Jeff Welles, president of InvoTech Systems, Inc. "We provide T-Y Group with a system to predefine each item of linen inventory for customers before delivery. Our clients benefit because they have reliable, accurate linen identification without work from their staff to define the linen inventory to their InvoTech system themselves. T-Y Group provided the Grand Beach Hotel Surfside with a linen inventory data file. It was a very easy system implementation that ensures an accurate inventory and recordkeeping.”

“InvoTech’s linen system is accurate and easy to use," said Danny Tuaty, president of T-Y Group. "It provides our customers with simplified, money-saving automated control of the high-quality linens that we provide."

InvoTech supplied Fujitsu UHF-RFID laundry tags to T-Y Group to pretag the linens. InvoTech installed its linen system with a UHF-RFID laundry cart reading station and touch-screen monitor in the Grand Beach Hotel Surfside loading dock. The reading station instantly counts and records entire carts of both soiled laundry and clean linens from up to eight feet away. InvoTech automates linen inventory tracking and recordkeeping for each item sent to the laundry and received clean, and provides accurate reports for laundry accountability. InvoTech also provided a UHF-RFID linen inventory reading station to monitor linen aging so the property can maintain high quality control standards for guests. InvoTech integrates Impinj UHF-RFID speedway revolution readers for all fixed reading stations for performance and reliability. InvoTech also supplied a wireless handheld RFID reader to quickly monitor and maintain linen storeroom par stocks without hand counting to save time and ensure the property always has sufficient linens.
