IOT for laundries: CLEAN VISIBILITY ON ALL TEXTILES
More value, less waste
See every piece of textile anywhere, at any time. When it is ready for washing, when it enters and leaves your laundry, arrives at your customer, and at every step in between.
How much time do you spend getting an accurate inventory of workwear, linen and other washable items? All that counting can be automated fully, at any location with an UHF RFID reader, and for any textile equipped with a small, unobtrusive UHF RFID tag. Our dedicated UHF RFID solution for industrial laundries will automatically generate data that enable precise workload planning, automate time-consuming tasks, minimise human error, and increase asset utilisation rates, all while improving laundry lead times.
Once unleashed, a dedicated RFID Internet of Things (IoT) solution will start to increase fundamentally any industrial laundry’s bottom-line.
Optimise item utilisation rate: wash cycles and histories per item can become visible automatically, reducing the need for manual quality checks and unnecessary disposal of items at predetermined intervals.
Reduce stock per customer: you will know where all of your items are and have full active and passive stock visibility per customer, which will enable you to reduce redundant stocks.
Track personalised items: personalised textiles become traceable at the click of a button because RFID technology can give any item a unique, digital identity.
Know when & where items are lost: you will be able to pinpoint item location more precisely for in-house retrieval, or you will have the visibility data to bill customers for lost items.
Automated data, generated by RFID technology, also helps improve industrial laundry sustainability. For every unique item, triggers can be set that initiate quality checks after a predetermined number of washing cycles. The resulting waste reduction will enable savings, both on money and on emissions. Laundries can reduce emissions and cost even more by picking up textiles at customers when needed, instead of relying on frequent, pre-scheduled pick-ups.

UPDATE YOUR OLD-FASHIONED LAUNDRY PROCESS TO THIS CENTURY
A lot of manual work. No clear idea of your inventory in your service center or in the customer’s facilities. No accurate data on how many times items have been washed. Textiles go missing. Storage space is limited. Does this sound familiar?
These are some of the issues that industrial laundry businesses face daily. But there's nothing that a little bit of magical RFID technology couldn't solve.
