The City Hotel in Ljubljana Slovenia Installs InvoTech Linen System to Cut Labor Costs

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 21, 2015

InvoTech Systems, Inc. announced The City Hotel in Ljubljana, Slovenia installed InvoTech’s Linen System to reduce labor costs and losses by outside laundry service providers. InvoTech Systems provides advanced Linen Management, Uniform and Laundry Systems that integrate the latest RFID technology to increase profitability for hotel and casino operators. InvoTech is recognized globally for implementing systems and solutions that save hotels time, labor and money. Click here for more information on InvoTech’s Linen, Laundry and Uniform Systems.

“InvoTech’s Linen System solved two issues at our property,” said Peter Susnik, general manager to The City Hotel Ljubljana. “We wanted to reduce the time and manpower required to sort laundry items each day. Wages are a main budget expense at our property and we needed to cut any cost not related to guest service. The second issue was the loss of our valuable linen items due to laundry company errors. InvoTech corrected both issues. I would recommend InvoTech’s solutions to any hotel with similar challenges.”

InvoTech savings goes straight to the bottom line.

InvoTech Director of Sales Oswald Lares said, “Operators in countries worldwide recognize that InvoTech’s solutions increase profitability. The growing global adoption of our advanced, easy to use Linen, Uniform and Laundry solutions deliver a huge gain in operating efficiency. Plus, the money our systems save by reducing non-theft related loss to nearly zero goes straight to the bottom line.” InvoTech’s RFID technology monitors and controls linen movement throughout a property and to/from its laundry. It provides 100% reduction in non-theft related losses, cuts labor costs by 50%, and provides control of outside laundry charges.

“The City Hotel’s laundry inventory shortages were small on a daily basis, but they turned into a decent cost by the end of the year,” said Susnik. “Before we had InvoTech it was difficult to figure out if our outside laundry had kept a fair amount of our towels and bed sheets. InvoTech’s Linen System tracks and reports on the movement of each item as it is used and passes to and from our laundry company. This is a great cost savings to our hotel.”

InvoTech’s international clients include Four Seasons Macau; Grand Venetian Macau Resort Hotel; MGM Grand Macau; Hyatt Shanghai, China; Burswood Entertainment Complex, Australia; Sheraton Seoul, Korea; Resorts World Sentosa Singapore; and Palace Resorts, Mexico. North American clients include MGM Resorts International, Ritz Carlton, Hyatt Hotels, Marriott, Hilton Hotels, Loews Hotels, Mandarin Oriental, Universal Studios Florida, Madison Square Garden, MSR-FSR Laundry, Empire State Building, and other leading companies.
