The areas of greatest interest were the new technologies, especially the ramping up of RFID. Although the cost is high, the global trend appears to be towards adopt- ing RFID as it provides the next level of control of linen stocks, with clear informa- tion on quantities delivered, received back, and in a lan- guage which can be commu- nicated to clients. LAA Members listened to several speakers over the course of the afternoon at LDCT Training School in Cardiff.
