True Health Clubs Use RFID to Shape Up Towel Management
The Singapore-based company can better track the towels it loans to patrons, as well as those that are picked up or returned by its laundry service provider.
EPC Solutions provided its L30 ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) laundry tag, which was sewn into the edge of each towel used at the Taiwan facility. Each ID number encoded in the tag is unique and indicates that specific towel. EPC Solutions then installed an Alien Technology ALR-9900+ UHF reader in the club's lobby, with two antennas flanking the turnstiles through which members must pass when entering or exiting the facility. In addition, EPC Solutions installed an Alien ALR-9650 fixed reader at the box in which used towels are placed.
When the number of towels returned reaches 200, the EPC Solutions software sends a text message to the appropriate employee, indicating that the box has reached its maximum capacity. While emptying the box, the worker also updates the software to indicate that it is now empty.
