InvoTech Systems, Inc.'s UHF-RFID Uniform System was installed for the grand opening of the Park Hyatt New York.

InvoTech managed installation of durable RFID tags in the hotel’s 4,000 uniforms and recorded garment assignments prior to opening to simplify property operations.

The InvoTech Uniform System reduces labor expenses associated with manual garment handling and increases employee accountability with automated uniform tracking.

“Park Hyatt New York is a celebration of luxury, refinement and art in Manhattan. The property’s uniforms play an essential part,” said Oswald Lares, director of sales for InvoTech Systems. “Park Hyatt New York is the 38th Hyatt property to install our system to manage uniform operations, laundry, and distribution.”

Park Hyatt New York’s InvoTech system interfaces with a White Conveyors U-Pick-It System that automates uniform distribution and quickly delivers the correct garments to Hyatt staff. The InvoTech Uniform System integrates UHF-RFID readers that scan durable waterproof UHF-RFID laundry tags for automated tracking and recordkeeping. Tags are attached to the uniforms before they were delivered to the property to make the system implementation and employee uniform fittings as smooth as possible.

To maximize accurate uniform tracking and inventory efficiency, Park Hyatt also utilizes a wireless UHF-RFID handheld reader with InvoTech mobile software to count hundreds of articles in seconds. InvoTech records the location of each garment – whether in the laundry or retrieved by a staff member – to maintain a real-time uniform inventory. InvoTech software records uniform use and laundry cycles to forecast replacement requirements for accurate budgeting and uniform quality. InvoTech’s on-site services help ensure the property can realize the maximum ongoing cost-saving benefits.
