Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) belongs to a group of technologies that automatically identify objects, collect data about them, and enter this data directly into computer systems with little or no human intervention. RFID methods utilize radio waves to accomplish this. The RFID Technology has been in use for a few years now and, according to a recent study, the total RFID market will be rising, from $11 Billion in 2018, to over $13 Billion in 2022. (See: RFID Forecasts, Players and Opportunities 2018-2028).
The growth in RFID applications across many industries – such as retail, healthcare, logistics and so on, has encouraged the adoption of this technology by more and more companies. It’s also the case of the Laundry Sector, where RFID technology can be a powerful tool when it comes to automating data collection and monitoring of textile items, reducing human error, enforcing security, cost controlling, superior ROI and more.
The ability to track and trace items through RFID could be said to be at the heart of effective linen management. Furthermore, RFID data can also influence buying decisions and help to start discussions between laundries and customers as to how they can work together to solve problems such as linen loss or misuse.
