InvoTech and T-Y Group simplify linen supply and control for Grand Beach Hotel Surfside

The Grand Beach Hotel Surfside installed InvoTech Systems Inc.'s UHF-RFID Linen System to protect the property's linen investment. T-Y Group provided the hotel with 50,000 linen items pre-tagged with durable UHF-RFID laundry tags to enable instant, simplified linen inventory and tracking.

The Grand Beach Hotel Surfside in Miami had its grand opening last November. 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 opening. 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 supplied Fujitsu UHF-RFID laundry tags to T-Y Group to pre-tag 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 8 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.
