Business Challenges: How RFID applications are the solution

If your organization is a janitorial, window cleaning, carpet and upholstery cleaning, commercial laundry, waste collection, or pest control service, you will share certain challenges that exist in the cleaning and maintenance industries.

RFID technology can be used to overcome these challenges. Here are some examples:

Challenge 1: Managing Equipment

From booms and carriages to trucks, large and expensive equipment are used to provide cleaning and maintenance services. While asset management is a key priority, it can be a challenge to keep track of who is using this equipment, where it has been moved to, or when it is due for servicing.

By outfitting equipment with RFID tags, the tracking and maintenance monitoring of equipment can be automated to provide instant visibility of equipment utilization.

Challenge 2: Managing Inventory

When providing cleaning and maintenance services, a vast array of tools need to be used in order to complete the job. To know how your consumables are being used and where laundry items, bins, containers, or waste carts are located will allow a cost-effective approach to inventory management.

Attaching RFID tags to consumables and tools enables up-to-the-minute checks on item inventory levels and locations to keep operating costs lean.

Challenge 3: Managing Time & Personnel

Being a part of two highly labour-intensive sectors, it is critical for cleaning and maintenance organizations to have a firm grasp of labour performance and operations efficiencies. From simple processes such as employee attendance verification to the much more complex needs of knowing what bins are dumped during waste collection rounds or the hands-free scanning of termite detection stations, the efficiency of personnel and their use of time is crucial to business performance.

RFID technology enables the tracking of personnel movement throughout the workday and automates tasks to ensure accountability and productivity. Everything can be captured to provide data for workflow analysis to improve processes and optimize routes.

Challenge 4: Controlling Access

Controlling who can access service areas and expensive equipment is necessary when deploying staff to provide cleaning and maintenance services. Automating the process increases efficiency and provides business owners with a peace of mind knowing that only authorized personnel are permitted access.

RFID badges give only authorized personnel access to zones and equipment in your business to ensure a safe and secure environment. You no longer need physical keys or sign in/out sheets to grant access and monitor activity.
