Cancun's Palace Resorts automates linen and laundry operations

Palace Resorts installed InvoTech Systems' multi-property RFID linen and laundry systems for automated linen and laundry control and cost reduction. Palace Resorts implemented the linen system at all of its resort properties, and installed the laundry system at the Palace Resorts laundry distribution center.

InvoTech provides Palace Resorts with both Spanish and English language operating systems, so that each user can specify his or her preferred language for ease of use. InvoTech also supplied on-site system training and reference guides in both Spanish and English.

InvoTech installed UHF-RFID linen reading stations at each Palace Resort for real-time tracking and processing of entire laundry carts of soiled linens going to the Palace Resorts laundry distribution center. The UHF-RFID reading stations also process pallets of bundled clean linens returned by the laundry. The pallets carry as many as 3,000 linen items.
