HID recently introduced an end-to-end cloud-based solution to help hospitality and healthcare facilities track and trace employee uniforms.

The company’s InvoTech Cloud is being offered as a way to monitor employee uniforms from purchasing through daily use to final discard. The solution enables laundry and housekeeping managers with real-time visibility into inventory levels, usage patterns, and replacement needs, opening up the possibility to prevent overcharges and optimizing costs. Uniform tracking can be established by utilizing RFID or barcodes.

By tracking uniforms throughout laundry activities and enabling clear assignment tracking, InvoTech Cloud can foster employee accountability as well.

Hospitality, Healthcare Uses

Oswald Lares, Director of Strategic Partnerships for HID Textile Services, stated uniform management in hospitality and healthcare is a labor-intensive and error-prone process, one that InvoTech eases.

“Laundry and housekeeping managers can now focus on their core duties while gaining valuable insights to optimize uniform purchases, prevent losses, and ultimately save their organizations significant time and money,” said Lares in a press statement.

As the core of the solution, the user-friendly software offers automated reporting capabilities, providing valuable insights into uniform usage trends and automated workflows, helping managers to identify areas for further optimization.

InvoTech Capabilities

HID officials said the solution is designed to be easy to use and simple to install, providing a comprehensive set of uniform inventory management functionalities, including dashboards and reports.

Among the benefits is eliminating unaccounted losses associated with employee and daily laundry activities, reducing annual purchases by informing on what items to replace to maintain quality standards, help increase labor productivity by eliminating certain manual tasks and automating record-keeping.

Additionally, InvoTech Cloud is being promoted as helping reduce laundry expenses by controlling cleaning activity and preventing overcharges from outside laundries.

Cintas Practices

One of the leading providers of uniforms for a wide range of industries, Cintas officials said the InvoTech system is a great resource for them and their uniform rooms as it offers a portable solution for tracking garments between the room, employees and laundry.

“With its web-based capabilities, our leaders can access information while off site, increasing the value of the program,” explains Melissa Harsh, Regional Manager of Onsite Solutions Design Collective for Cintas. “Its scanning device is easy to use and the InvoTech IT department offers great support. We are excited to integrate this technology into our uniform rooms.”
