Commercial Laundry Improves Visibility
and Inventory Control With RFID

Fishers Services has equipped its "super laundry" in Glasgow with RFID readers to interrogate tags attached to the linens it provides to its customers, as well as on all bags and roll cages that it uses to ship those linens. This has enabled Fishers to view when goods are received, laundered and shipped to customers, and to thereby gain visibility into where those items are located, as well as which are delayed or may be missing. This video explains how the use of passive UHF allows the laundry company to better manage its inventory of linens to prevent losses, while providing its customers with access to the collected data.
