TAGSYS, leading provider of item-level inventory management systems that streamline the supply chain, today announced the launch of its next generation ACUITY system. ACUITY 2014 is a complete, real-time, RFID-based item-level inventory management system specifically designed for textile rental service professionals. ACUITY is scalable and adapts to their evolving requirements in terms of stock volumes and multiple site deployments, and significantly contributes to reducing linen losses and offering new value-added services.
As of today, more than twenty European customers, including large laundry groups, textile services providers and hospital laundries, are already benefiting from ACUITY’s benefits in terms linen traceability and visibility throughout their entire maintenance and distribution cycle.
According to Murray Simpson, Chief Executive of UK-based Textile Service Association: ‘….as an industry we recognize that we need to do more to protect stock with improved management systems and policies. Only by embracing technology and educating everyone in the supply chain will we get a fix on our stock and look to protecting profitability for all. It’s long overdue and the greatest beneficiaries will be our customers and our industry as a whole.’ (Laundry & Cleaning Today, August 2013).
Adjusted to the specific requirements of laundries and their customers, and leveraging best-of-breed UHF RFID technology and a distributed software architecture, ACUITY generates dashboards and real-time reports to optimize linen stock rotation at laundry sites and their customer sites, helping our textile professional customers be more competitive by taking real time operational and business decisions required in their day to day activity.
ACUITY integrates seamlessly with existing operational and IT infrastructure, and provides accuracy and efficiency in business processes, even in a disconnected mode, such as delivery and collection to and from laundry customers’ sites.
‘Being able to address the future in a more competitive, efficient and serene manner, in a challenging economic environment, while increasing productivity is a key priority for the public and private sectors,’ said TAGSYS CEO Alain Fanet. ‘ACUITY contributes to significantly reduce linen stocks and increase productivity gains beyond 20%.’
ACUITY enables laundries to offer new services to their customers such as real-time inventory of their own stocks, cage tracking, and monitoring of linen durability and life-cycle, while reflecting on new business models to be more competitive.
