With RFID technology, elaborate and expensive sorting and counting by hand is no longer necessary.
In the hospitality industry businesses using commercial laundry services often struggle with asset management. Hotels, resorts and
spas are faced with the task of tracking huge quantities of towels and linens to be laundered on a daily basis. Many resorts spend countless hours taking inventory of lines, which is not only time-consuming but also costly in terms of labor. Yet this still does little to prevent items from being lost or stolen, costing the industry millions of Dollars per year.
In order to deal with unreliable inventory numbers, hotels and resorts are forced to increase their par level of inventory, which is the amount of inventory needed to meet the minimum daily customer demand.
PAR inventory provides a cushion, or safety stock, in case of an unexpected spike in usage or a delay in delivery. However a PAR level that is too high leads to a large capital expense and underutilized inventory.
The standard par for a resort is around
2.5 to 3; however, many need to increase that amount and carry excess, because they can’t trust their inventory systems due to low inventory visibility.
With a reliable inventory system, resorts and hotels are able to reduce PAR inventory, and therefore reduce their costs significantly.
