The Alvear Palace hotel in Buenos Aires is using Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology to make sure its staff are perfectly presented.

The luxury hotel in Argentina is using RFID to track the lifecycle of employee uniforms using special tags called an I-Code.

The hotel has now attached the small I-Code tag RFID tag to every article of clothing. A RFID interrogator reads this information and stores it on a database, so each garment can be accounted for.

The technology replaces a manual system, which, according to the hotel, would result in misplaced uniforms and inadequate supplies of clean uniforms.
