InvoTech Systems, Inc., provider of hotel systems for efficient operations, announced that the new Omni Dallas Hotel has installed InvoTech’s GIMS™ ultra-high frequency (UHF) RFID uniform system inventory software.

The hotel’s uniform company installed approximately 6,000 UHF-RFID laundry tags on the uniforms before they were shipped to the property for use. GIMS™ will automatically track the property’s custom-designed uniforms from the moment of purchase. The company is also providing onsite installation, training, and 24-hour customer support.

GIMS automatically tracks 6,000 uniforms valued at $150,000
“InvoTech’s UHF-RFID tracking system was operational for the November 11, 2011 grand opening of our 1,001-room luxury hotel,” said Nils Stolzlechner, General Manager of the Omni Dallas Hotel. “The system will enable us to maximize efficiencies in regard to our hotel uniforms on a daily basis in order to maintain our image and investment.”

Automatic tracking preserves uniform investment
“A large part of the respected Omni Hotels & Resorts brand image is its fashionable uniforms,” says Jeff Welles, InvoTech vice president. The GIMS™ system includes UHF-RFID laundry tags and UHF-RFID readers and antennas. Laundry tags are fitted in pouches that are sewn into the garments. The UHF-RFID tags are read with no labor as uniforms pass by the specialized antennas. “GIMS™ eliminates the need for labor intensive, single-piece hand counts,” says Welles, “as well as the resulting manual errors. The Omni Dallas Hotel will manage its uniform inventory, prevent losses, and control its annual purchases automatically with UHF-RFID.” In addition, GIMS™ monitors the aging of the uniform inventory and provides accurate information to forecast uniform purchases.
