How Does Manhattan’s Newest Luxury Location Track Uniform Assignments, Maintain Laundry Accountability, and Reduce Labor Expenses? With InvoTech Systems, Inc. Technology

Park Hyatt New York

Park Hyatt New York is a celebration of luxury, refinement and art in Manhattan. The property’s uniforms play an essential part.

When Manhattan’s newest luxury hotel, Park Hyatt New York, opened its doors on August 19, InvoTech Systems, Inc.'s UHF-RFID Uniform System was already at work behind the scenes to maintain garment quality. InvoTech managed installation of durable RFID tags in the hotel’s 4,000 uniforms and recorded garment assignments prior to opening to simplify property operations.

The InvoTech Uniform System reduces labor expenses associated with manual garment handling and increases employee accountability with automated uniform tracking. Click here for more information on InvoTech’s Linen, Uniform, and Laundry Systems.

InvoTech installs automated system at 38th Hyatt property--"a celebration of luxury"

“Park Hyatt New York is a celebration of luxury, refinement and art in Manhattan. The property’s uniforms play an essential part,” said Oswald Lares, director of sales for InvoTech Systems. “Park Hyatt New York is the 38th Hyatt property to install our system to manage uniform operations, laundry, and distribution.”

RFID technology maintains a real-time inventory from distribution to laundry

Park Hyatt New York’s InvoTech system interfaces with a White Conveyors U-Pick-It System that automates uniform distribution and quickly delivers the correct garments to Hyatt staff. The InvoTech Uniform System integrates UHF-RFID readers that scan durable waterproof UHF-RFID laundry tags for automated tracking and recordkeeping. Tags are attached to the uniforms before they were delivered to the property to make the system implementation and employee uniform fittings as smooth as possible.

Handheld reader counts hundreds of articles in seconds

To maximize accurate uniform tracking and inventory efficiency, Park Hyatt also utilizes a wireless UHF-RFID handheld reader with InvoTech mobile software to count hundreds of articles in seconds. InvoTech records the location of each garment – whether in the laundry or retrieved by a staff member – to maintain a real-time uniform inventory. InvoTech software records uniform use and laundry cycles to forecast replacement requirements for accurate budgeting and uniform quality. InvoTech’s on-site services help ensure the property can realize the maximum ongoing cost-saving benefits.

With a premier address on West 57th Street, Park Hyatt New York is nestled among many top destinations and faces the world-famous Carnegie Hall across the street. The property aims to raise the standards for style and sophistication in New York luxury hotels. Personal touches inspire ambiance, artwork, dining, and décor.
