HID Global Acquires InvoTech Systems
Identity solutions provider HID Global recently announced it has acquired InvoTech Systems, Inc. to strengthen HID’s textile inventory management systems offering for uniforms, linens, and laundry operations. The portfolio of InvoTech is considered to be a valuable addition to the exisiting RFID portfolio of HID Global.
The acquisition improves HID’s position within this growing market, as InvoTech already provides technology and services to clients across hundreds of properties across the globe, including many of the largest players in the hotel, resort, theme park, and cruise industries.
InvoTech’s real-time inventory management platform combines software, RFID tags, equipment and services to efficiently identify, track and monitor uniforms, linen and textile assets. InvoTech enables the real-time visibility of textile assets via three core software solutions, including:
- InvoTech™ Uniform System: Manages the lifecycle of employee uniforms from purchasing through daily use to final discard
- InvoTech™ Linen System: Automates linen inventory management operations using RFID tags for automatic identification, counting, tracking and more
- InvoTech™ Laundry System: Automatically tracks and manages laundry activity for customer-owned and rental uniforms and linens for industrial laundries, hotels and hospitals
Founded in 1993, and based in Woodland Hills, California, InvoTech Systems is now part of HID’s Identification Technologies Business Area led by Marc Bielmann, Senior Vice President and Head of Identification Technologies. The InvoTech offering will merge into HID Textile Services and benefit from HID’s expertise in laundry RFID tags and readers to support their solution offering.
