How the Towel Tracker Works
The Towel Tracker has two components: the Clean Towel Unit and the Towel Return Unit. Each is about the size of a vending machine. Enclosed in the Clean Towel Unit is a removable cart with approximately 300 towels club members can access. The Towel Return Unit contains a removable cart that collects used towels, eliminating them from sight.
Each towel is embedded with a washable RFID tag the size of a paperclip. This tag provides each towel with a unique identification number. Members access towels by swiping their membership card to open the door. Members then take the towels they want and close the door.
1. User swipes membership or guest ID card (reader options are available).
2. Member removes towels and Towel Tracker records which towels are assigned to member. The system tracks and reports towel usage and theft.
3. Returned towels are collected in one, easy-to-remove cart.
Towel Tracker’s real-time, customized data analytics enable you to effortlessly manage towel usage and inventory. Examples of data analytics available include:
Overall number of towels checked out (blue bar) and towels missing (pink bar)
Towels checked out, returned, and missing for a specific room
Overall towel inventory with automatic reorder point
