Michigan-based Soaring Eagle Casino and Resort has implemented the UHF-RFID Uniform Management System from InvoTech to automate uniform tracking, accounting, and reporting for 20,000 newly designed uniforms. Soaring Eagle also installed InvoTech in the property’s uniform distribution center to establish 100 percent accountability and reduce replacement expenses.
The InvoTech Uniform System interfaces with the White Conveyors U-Pick-It System to automatically deliver uniforms to staff.
“We recently fitted our staff of 3,500 with new uniforms that match the property’s décor. We installed the InvoTech system to protect our investment,” said Heidi L. Smith, uniform manager for Soaring Eagle Casino and Resort. “In the past each department handled its own uniforms. We expect substantial savings with InvoTech’s automated, central uniform control. The system will reduce replacement costs by tracking each article and assigning specific uniforms to staff members. It will also help us operate more efficiently.”
Soaring Eagle previously managed its 20,000 uniforms manually.
“Properties that implement InvoTech’s UHF-RFID Uniform, Linen, and Laundry systems report a complete ROI payback in about one year,” said Oswald Lares, director of sales for InvoTech Systems. “The Uniform System eliminates 100 percent of unaccounted losses associated with employees and daily laundry activity. InvoTech automates recordkeeping to eliminate overcharges from outside laundries. The system also cuts annual purchases 5 percent or more and reduces laundry expenses 3 percent to 5 percent and delivers up to 20 percent greater labor productivity.”
Other InvoTech clients include MGM Resorts International, Hyatt Hotels, Marriott, Hilton Hotels, Universal Studios Florida, Wynn Resort Las Vegas and Macau, Madison Square Garden, MSR-FSR Laundry, Empire State Building, Loews Hotels, Mandarin Oriental, and other leading companies.
