Coca-Cola Improves Drink Dispenser Experience

Linen and Uniform Tracking:
Track washable items, reduce loss, and match supply to needs

Simplify bulk handling of laundry items

Sorting, handling and counting laundry by hand is a time consuming and inaccurate process. Laundry tagged with RAIN RFID can be identified and tracked by the client in bulk. And, as a hands-free system, it also eliminates the need for staff to touch soiled or dirty items.

Clean laundry to standard

Laundry processes are difficult to keep track of, with some pieces requiring special treatment. Data about the type of cleaning that has taken place can be encoded into the RAIN RFID tag as actions are completed to guarantee laundry is done to standard every time.

Ensure delivery to the correct customer

Because things like linens, towels, and robes, may look alike from one client to another, it can be difficult to ensure that freshly laundered items end up at the right location. Identify the origins of tagged laundry and ensure each client receives the correct linens.



PAK Automates Laundry Textile Tracking with RAIN RFID

PAK, an industrial laundry facility located in Istanbul, Turkey, uses RAIN RFID to monitor and locate lost items with pinpoint accuracy and cut costs while reducing staff at every stage of the linen cycle. As the textiles move to and from the customers and throughout the laundry facility, the solution from Impinj partner USTEK monitors each item and updates its status in the database, simultaneously providing operational benefits like soiled/clean counts, delivery bills and package labels.



Meritex Improves Laundry Service with Linen Tracking

Using a RAIN RFID asset management solution provided by Impinj and partner Foundation Logicsystems, Meritex, a Hilton Worldwide subsidiary, was able to increase accuracy and the quality of its laundry service. While Meritex previously looked up linen history in batches, with the RAIN RFID system they now have item-level visibility and can see exact details for each individual linen piece. Meritex can now look for trends in linen lifecycle based on article, number of washes, and hotel, and optimize processes accordingly.
