To help keep its edge, LaGrange, Ga.-based InterfaceFlor developed IntelligentFlor, an RFID system designed to bring efficiencies and cost savings to commercial carpet maintenance. Carpet cleaning, it turns out, is a huge issue—for the customer and for InterfaceFlor. Sometimes customers return carpet tiles, complaining about defects in the material. When Interface analyzes the carpet tiles, it often finds that poor maintenance, which results in soil buildup from foot traffic, is the reason they've lost luster and color. IntelligentFlor, still in the prototype stage, can detect which carpet tiles were vacuumed and which weren't.
