“Through the utilization of RFID technology we are providing companies with the unique ability to better control their operating costs and investment in assets critical to satisfying the needs of the hotel guests.”
Denver (PRWEB) March 17, 2011
Fluensee, a leading provider of RFID asset tracking and supply chain management solutions, today announced that Linen Technology Tracking, LLC, has partnered with the Denver-based company to deliver its patented linentracker® solution on Fluensee’s AssetTrack platform to optimize the utilization, inventorying, tracking, laundering and replenishment of towels, linens, hampers and related assets to its many hotel customers.
In the hospitality industry one of the largest expenses of room occupancy is the growing cost of linen supplies; however, hotels nationwide are operating with limited inventory information, control and knowledge of the true costs of these assets. The linentracker solution powered by Fluensee gives hotels the ability to manage thousands of RFID-enabled towels, sheets, bathrobes and other associated assets throughout hotel properties and laundry service providers. Tagged with Linen Technology Tracking’s patented RFID SMARTtags, each asset is scanned and monitored to and from the laundry, in and out of linen closets, at various check-in/out stations, down laundry chutes and even at pool and beach kiosks. AssetTrack’s comprehensive ability to capture these processes in real time combined with a powerful reporting and analytics engine gives hotel operators the unique ability to efficiently manage their investment in these otherwise difficult-to-manage assets.
Real-time visibility to these items combined with a powerful workflow engine and customizable alerting functions provide hotels with significant benefits, including:
- Reduction in inventory time and labor
- More efficient management of linen purchases
- Improved control and savings within the laundry process
- Increased life of linens and towels
- Improved control over check-in and check-out process
- Reduction in linen and towel theft and shrinkage
- Improved customer service
“Our relationship with Fluensee allows us to easily scale our capability to serve the growing needs of our customers,” said William Serbin, EVP at Linen Technology Tracking. “Through the utilization of RFID technology we are providing companies with the unique ability to better control their operating costs and investment in assets critical to satisfying the needs of the hotel guests.”
“We are excited to be partnered with Linen Technology Tracking for the delivery of such an industry-leading solution to the hospitality industry,” added Tim Harvie, CEO, Fluensee. “As higher cotton prices continue to drive up the cost of towels and linens, Linen Technology Tracking is delivering a much needed solution to better manage these assets, and in doing so has delivered significant value and a very rapid ROI to its customers.”
