Rooming and Boarding Houses across the U.S. and Canada provide unique services for short and long-term renters alike. Affordable and maintained, your organization provides some staple services such as laundry and cleaning, some meals as well as internet service. Since the possession of the house is not exclusive and shared, you face unique challenges on a daily basis.
GAO RFID Systems for the Rooming and Boarding House industry are designed to help hostel service providers tackle a variety of challenges that they face with regards to the unique services that they provide each day, including:
- Tracking and managing renting and boarding documentation
- Managing transfer room transfer requests
- Managing cleaning logs for the rooms and common rooms
- Managing staff
- Tracking and managing inventory
Using GAO RFID Systems in the Rooming & Boarding House Industry
Our RFID Systems for Rooming and Boarding Houses help to automate administrative tasks so that your organization can run more efficiently. Our innovative RFID solutions also help to ensure the increased safety and security of boarders, staff and the equipment on-site. Here are our few things our RFID Systems can help with:
Controlling and Restricting Access to Rooms and Property
The safety of boarders and staff in any hostel-like system is a top priority. As the property includes multiple public and private spaces, such as rooms for rent, laundry areas as well as dining room, the management of these spaces along with the boarders and the employees in these spaces is required to reduce risk of potential danger and keep everyone safe. In addition, in case of emergency, it is vital that all employees and boarders can be identified and located. The GAO RFID Access Control System utilizes RFID wrist bands, badges and tags, as well as strategically placed readers, to allow for a fully automated access control system with centralized data that is visible in real-time. Every time access is granted, the event is logged in the database for you to easily generate reports and review access activity. This data is best to ensure security and safety of all those on the premises.
Time and Data Management
To allow for the best possible boarding and renting environment, boarders, employees and administrative staff need to optimize the time they spend in the facility. The best way to accomplish this is to allow for automated data management as well as monitoring staff work flow. Using our RFID Personnel Tracking System, you can monitor how employees move throughout the facility, how long they spend at each zone, and track their sign in and out times. This data gives you the power to see staff productivity and assess effectiveness. Each employee is given an RFID Badge, and as they enter and exit areas or access certain equipment, there usage details are tracked.
In addition, by assigning RFID badges to employees and administrative staff enables the progression of boarders and the efficiency of staff to be monitored as they go through their rental period. This method of personnel locating can also automatically log time and attendance of the employees in the boarding houses. The resulting data can be seamlessly integrated with an existing payroll system in your organization.
Managing and Maintaining Equipment
In order for rooming and boarding houses to operate smoothly and efficiently, all equipment on the property must be well maintained. From the coffee makers, fridges, dishwashers, washing machines and dryers, the availability and maintenance of this equipment is a vital part of the success of the boarding house. As a result, all equipment on the premises need to be efficiently tracked and monitored in order to prevent loss and remain well maintained.
With our RFID Asset Tracking System, the tracking, maintenance and monitoring of the equipment can be automated. The equipment, therefore, can be safe, secure, and available for your organization’s needs.
Closely connected to equipment management is the task of inventory management and detailed inventory checks. As rooming and boarding houses have a variety of supplies in the laundry rooms and cafeterias as well as other capital intensive assets, they need to be monitored, tracked and maintained for optimal use within the organization.
GAO RFID Asset Tracking System solutions provide you with methods to track and categorize all inventory, from linen to perishable food items in the kitchen, to ensure you have what you need—when you need it.
