The Plaza Upgrades to RFID Technology using InvoTech Uniform System
LOS ANGELES, CA – August 14, 2018 -- InvoTech Systems Inc. announced the recent upgrade of its Uniform System at The Plaza. InvoTech Systems is the leading provider of advanced Linen Management, Laundry and Uniform Systems that integrate the latest RFID technology to increase profitability for hotels, resorts, casino operators, sports arenas, convention centers and theme parks. The InvoTech System installed at The Plaza manages the Uniform inventory for 900 employees, and the property joins InvoTech’s extensive client portfolio of RFID Uniform systems worldwide.

The UHF-RFID upgrade will provide additional cost-saving benefits by automating manual tasks that were previously required. Specialized waterproof RFID tags are discreetly attached to each uniform piece. The InvoTech Uniform System automatically tracks RFID tagged uniform pieces when issued to employees and as it is shipped to and received back from the laundry. Previously, garments were manually scanned one-at-a-time, a time consuming process that now will be eliminated. The RFID technology allows for multiple uniforms to be processed simultaneously and automatically, and the recordkeeping is also automated.
“Our property has utilized InvoTech’s Uniform System for over 10 years. They provide an excellent product and services. InvoTech’s team is always responsive – from the support team to supplies. The upgrade process and installation was simple, no new training was needed and most importantly upgrading did not interrupt with our daily operations” said Rich Francis, Director of Information Technology at The Plaza.
“Our Uniform System establishes a perpetual uniform inventory and has extensive reporting capabilities to determine and forecast future purchases. The system tracks uniform inventory without manually sorting and hand-counting. Laundry expenses are easy to monitor, lowering laundry expenses and labor costs” said Oswald Lares, Director of Sales at InvoTech Systems.
The InvoTech Uniform System is a paperless “green” system. The System includes an electronic signature capture terminal that records employee signatures when uniforms are assigned, which eliminates the need to print reports to obtain signatures. In addition, all system reports can be viewed on the screen or generated to PDF files to be easily viewed or shared, which also facilitates a paperless “green” system.
InvoTech has over 600 of satisfied clients worldwide in more than 30 countries, including hotels, resorts, casinos, theme parks, stadiums, arenas, convention centers, medical centers, cleanrooms, and laundries. Why InvoTech? Because major brands like Hyatt, Marriott, Ritz-Carlton, Hilton, MGM International, Wynn Resorts, Caesars Entertainment, Universal Studios, LEGOLAND, Intel, Pfizer, Madison Square Garden, and Staples Center rely on InvoTech Systems to provide operational efficiency, full-accountability, and turn-key solutions for laundry, linen and uniform management.
