ISBC and Blesk InCare have developed a ready-made RFID solution for fitness centers
ISBC and Blesk InCare have developed a ready-made RFID solution for fitness centers. Modern fitness clubs often provide free towels and gowns. Firstly, it solves the issue of hygiene, and secondly, it increases customer loyalty. After all, it's nice to get a clean, ironed towel every time before training! Each member of the club must return the towel and the gown after training. Nevertheless, the club has a certain percentage of losses, for large fitness clubs losses can reach up to 150 towels daily.
Of course, these are only approximate figures, and they depend on many factors:
- organization of the process,
- responsibility of administrators and maintenance personnel,
- the client.
In this regard, fitness clubs either bear the corresponding losses, or are forced to refuse to provide such service for free, thereby can trigger the outflow of clients to other clubs. The use of specialized RFID tags and RFID systems is an effective tool in the organization of the club's business processes to record and create an anti-theft system.
ISBC Group together with Blesk InCare have developed a ready-made RFID solution for fitness centers, spa salons and swimming pools.
Blesk InCare supplies the fitness clubs with its towels with RFID UHF labels for laundries that have been sewn into the edge of each of them. RFID tags contain unique ID-numbers, tied to each towel. If the client forgets to return the towel, then when he comes to the fitness doors, the RFID system reads the unique RFID tag number (and therefore the towel number is known), initiates a beep and informs the attendants of the club.
We note that we use only the most reliable RFID tags that perfectly tolerate a lot of washing during the whole life of the towel, ironing, drying, and also the impact of professional chemistry used in laundries.
