Park Hyatt New York prepared for grand opening with RFID uniform system

When Park Hyatt New York opened its doors in August, InvoTech Systems, Inc.'s UHF-RFID uniform system was already at work behind the scenes. 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.

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 uses 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.
