HID Global, an identity solutions provider, announced it has acquired InvoTech Systems Inc. The acquisition enhances HID’s textile inventory management systems offering for uniforms, linens and laundry operations and adds to HID Global’s RFID portfolio.
The acquisition advances HID’s stature within this market, as InvoTech provides technology and services to clients 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, executive vice president and head of HID Global. “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 efficiently identify, track and monitor uniforms, linen and textile assets.
Founded in 1993, and based in Woodland Hills, California, InvoTech Systems is now part of HID’s Identification Technologies Business Area led by Marc Bielmann, senior vice president and head of identification technologies. The InvoTech offering will merge into HID Textile Services and benefit from HID’s expertise in laundry RFID tags and readers to support their solution offering.
