Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology has been around since 1970. It was originally used to track valuables such as cattle and luggage. Advancements in technology and the rise of the Internet of Things has made it accessible and easy-to-use for tracking just about anything.

The Benefits of RFID Chip Technology

RFID technology now fits on a microchip so small it can be embedded in almost anything.  Cards, bracelets, towels and more can be identified and tracked wirelessly.  The implications for the hotel industry are enormous. Consider the following 3 ways RFID technology enhances hotel services.

1) Inventory Control

Inventory tracking and control have never been easier. RFID serves as a theft deterrent. Simply embed commonly stolen luxury items with RFID chips and see where they are at any moment. You can also receive alerts when these items leave your hotels. You can track your hotel uniform inventory, what sizes are available, and their laundry schedule. Finally, it makes inventory audits faster, easier, and more cost-effective. It eliminates the need for most of the manual labor and gives you a more accurate inventory count.        

2) Easy Room Access and Payment Option

RFID technology will add value and improve your guest experience in several exciting ways. Imagine having one card that gives your guests keyless entry into guestrooms, access to other areas of the hotel, and an easy and efficient way to make all in-hotel purchases.  

3) Track Your Business

All the data collected by RFID microchips can be accessed digitally. This means you’ll have the current location of all your hotel assets, guest purchase info and amenity use at your fingertips. You can analyze and prepare reports, gain useful insight into purchase patterns and consumer behavior, and make better business decisions.

Simplicity is Better

RFID chips simplify many aspects of hotel operations. They can enhance your guest experience, make inventory control easier and more effective, and make it easier to track your business. Few investments accomplish so much.
