HID Global acquires InvoTech Systems to enhance textile management portfolio
HID Global announced it has acquired InvoTech Systems, a company whose Uniform System technology helps to manage the lifecycle of employee uniforms from initial purchase to final discard.
HID says the acquisition enhances its textile inventory management systems offering for uniforms, linens and laundry operations, and adds to its RFID portfolio.
Founded in 1993, and based in Woodland Hills, Calif., InvoTech 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.
“Bringing InvoTech into the HID family exemplifies our commitment to extending our leadership in textile and laundry inventory management applications by providing a comprehensive suite of technology and services to customers around the world,” said Björn Lidefelt, EVP and head of HID Global, in a press release. “This acquisition, as well as HID’s recent acquisition of the Textile Services business from Invengo, positions us to expand both our technology portfolio and geographic footprint as we become the global leader in uniform, laundry and linen management applications.”
InvoTech’s real-time inventory management platform combines software, RFID tags, equipment and services to identify, track and monitor uniforms, linen and textile assets. In addition to its Uniform System, the company’s technology also includes Linen System, which automates linen inventory management operations using RFID tags, and Laundry System, which automatically tracks and manages laundry activity for customer-owned and rental uniforms and linens for industrial laundries, hotels and hospitals.
