RFID Captures Each Time Guests Throw in the Towel
A passive UHF RFID system from Towel Tracker enables health clubs, hotels and other businesses to track towels or other objects borrowed and returned, thereby reducing the loss of those items.
The technology is currently being used by health clubs, as well as hotels, Molewyk reports, and Towel Tracker is in discussions with companies from a variety of other industries regarding the technology, including airline companies and oil and gas firms. He declines, however, to provide details about how the system might be used in these cases.
A business can buy the Towel Tracker software and integrate it with its own back-end system—or, for a fee, the company can lease a hosted version of the software.
Although Johnson says he expected guests to consider the Towel Tracker device an inconvenience, it has had the opposite effect—not simply because the towels are cooled, he says, but also because it's easy to obtain and return them. If anything, he adds, the guests find it amusing.
"When I first heard about the idea of Towel Tracker, I was completely against doing it," Johnson states. "Now, I think it's absolutely the greatest thing."
