The New York Palace Emerges from Renovation with Advanced UHF-RFID
Uniform System to Streamline Uniform Operations for Staff of 1,000


Luxury New York Property Reduces Labor, Increases Profitability, Enhances Green Operations
 with Automated Uniform Tracking and Delivery to Employees


May 29, 2013 – The famed New York Palace in Manhattan is currently undergoing a total transformation that includes upgrades to many areas of the elegant property. Its $140,000,000 renovation will establish the hotel as a new luxury standard bearer in New York City. The New York Palace’s renovated Towers Rooms and Suites feature sophisticated, modern design elements and an array of state-of-the-art amenities. However, the renovation was more than skin deep. Property operators wanted to also streamline operations and create a more efficient hotel. One part of the property’s transformation included automation of the uniform system that delivers garments to more than 1,000 employees.

UHF-RFID uniform system automates manual processes, increases efficiency
The New York Palace installed an ultra-high frequency radio frequency identification (UHF-RFID) uniform system from InvoTech Systems along with a high-speed White Conveyors U-Pick-It uniform delivery system as part of its renovation. The property’s revitalization emphasized advanced technologies that increase efficiency and automate manual processes such as uniform tracking, management, and delivery. InvoTech is a leading provider of advanced Uniform, Linen, and Laundry Management Systems that leverage UHF-RFID technology and paperless reporting that saves time and money for companies around the world.

The New York Palace tapped AJ Conveyor and Laundry Systems to design, supply, and install the hotel’s state-of-the-art automated uniform conveyor system. AJ Conveyor recommended and implemented InvoTech’s UHF-RFID tracking system. “We worked with the property’s architect and facilities director to implement the best systems for their requirements,” said Anthony J. Bevilaque, principal of AJ Conveyor and Laundry Systems LLC. “InvoTech was the right choice to provide cost savings and total tracking capability for their 1,000-staff uniform operation.”

InvoTech’s Uniform System communicates with the White Conveyors U-Pick-It uniform delivery system to reduce labor and operating expenses by automating management of over 10,000 uniforms at The New York Palace. Click here for more information on InvoTech’s Linen, Uniform, and Laundry Systems.

“With The New York Palace’s renovations, our goal was to not only modernize and enhance the luxury property, but also implement processes that would streamline our efforts and improve our bottom line, lessoning overall expenses,” said General Manager David Chase. “InvoTech’s Uniform System helps us find efficiencies and create savings in our labor costs, while providing staff uniforms in an innovative and organized manner.”

“The New York Palace is a perfect example how the InvoTech UHF-RFID Uniform System reduces manual processes and creates a highly efficient operation,” said InvoTech Director of Sales Oswald Lares. “InvoTech’s expertise in complete RFID system integration with our Uniform System provides efficient control of the uniform inventory and delivers a 25% savings in labor costs. The InvoTech Uniform System interfaced to the automated uniform delivery system can reduce labor costs by another 50% by automatically delivering the uniforms to employees.” Lares noted The New York Palace’s system provides faster employee uniform delivery and paperless reporting. “Our cutting-edge technology teamed with the U-Pick-It uniform delivery system puts clean uniforms in staff’s hands in less than a minute after an employee ID is presented.”  
 
The New York Palace has 813 guest rooms and 86 suites, including the prominent Towers accommodations, showcasing exceptional views of the city skyline, elegant furnishings and enhanced features. In addition to full concierge services and a lengthy list of in-room amenities, The Palace offers 22,000 square feet of unique meeting and event space, a fitness center and spa; and a convenient location that positions the property as an ideal choice among Midtown luxury hotels for business or leisure guests.
