RFTT™ System is an automated inventory control and monitoring system that gathers data while providing RFID enhanced operational benefits. Making use of UHF versatility to its fullest, all items in motion between an industrial laundry and its customers are monitored throughout the whole linen cycle, not just inside the laundry.
Soiled check-out, clean check-in terminals, security gates, internal uniform dispatch stations are positioned at customer locations like hotels and hospitals, all communicating online with the RFTT Server positioned inside the laundry. This allows all parties to monitor and account their linen with precision, tracking bulk locations, individual wash counts, stock aging, cost control, invoicing, lost and discarded items and more.
Loads of precise information, not available to laundries before, are now reshaping the well-established linen rental and cleaning sector. Laundries are able to monitor and pinpoint their lost items and differentiate customer performance and develop customized pricing policies. Moreover, they are able to shed lost item margins off their rental prices, dramatically increasing their competitiveness.
