Palace Resorts, the company that sets the standard in five-star, all-inclusive resort accommodations, recently installed the InvoTech Systems Multi-Property RFID Linen and Laundry Systems for automated linen and laundry control and reduce operating costs. Palace Resorts implemented the InvoTech Linen System at all of its resort properties and installed InvoTech’s Laundry System at the Palace Resorts laundry distribution center. The InvoTech Systems provide Palace Resorts with complete control over linen inventories and establish more efficient operations. Palace Resorts has approximately 500,000 linens tagged with Fujitsu WT-A522 UHF-RFID linen tags provided by InvoTech.
Palace Resorts relies on InvoTech to control laundry operations and increase efficiency
Palace Resorts Corporate Operations Director Lorena Zahoul said, “InvoTech’s Systems provide our linen and laundry operations with better control and much greater efficiency. Palace Resorts installed InvoTech to consolidate all laundry processing and centralize inventory to increase staff productivity. The systems' multi-property functionality better manages inventory levels and laundry activity for all of the resorts from one system. InvoTech lets us track and control what each resort ships to, and receives back from, the laundry distribution center for more accurate inventories.”
InvoTech provides multi-language systems for flexible staff use
InvoTech provided Palace Resorts with Spanish and English language system options so each user can specify his or her preferred language for ease of use. InvoTech also supplied on-site system training and reference guides in Spanish and English.
InvoTech President Jeff Welles said, “InvoTech’s Linen System provides Palace Resorts with a perpetual linen inventory for each property. It also monitors the aging of each linen item based on usage for quality control and to forecast linen purchases. The InvoTech Laundry System established total control at the Palace Resorts laundry distribution center and ensures that linens are shipped to the correct resort properties. Automatic tracking and recordkeeping enable the system to accurately report and identify missing linens and pinpoint discrepancies between outgoing and incoming laundry items."
“Palace Resorts understood how Fujitsu’s RFID tag technology, combined with InvoTech Systems state-of-the-art uniform and linen tracking solutions, could benefit them by streamlining process and reducing overhead associated with logistics,” said Fujitsu Frontech North America’s Dan Dalton, director of New Product Development. “The WT-A522’s small size and durability are perfect for Hotel and Hospitality applications. We are proud that a premier resort operator like Palace Resorts has put their full confidence in our products.”
