Budget and mandate to buy efficiency-creating technology
“This year’s HITEC was larger and more productive than recent shows.  Attendees seemed to have budget and mandate to invest in systems that saved their companies money and improved staff efficiency,” said Harvey Welles, president and CEO of InvoTech.  “InvoTech’s team was extremely busy demonstrating how the GIMS™ UHF-RFID inventory control system tracks, records and inventories large amounts of linens and uniforms without using staff time.  Typically, a UHF-RFID system pays for itself in about a year due to labor savings and improved inventory control. That kind of ROI is important to operators today.”
