New UHF-RFID System Helps Luxury Resort Grow with Greater Efficiency, Automated Uniform Laundry Processing
Los Angeles, CA - February 13, 2014
InvoTech Systems, Inc., a leading provider of systems that integrate the latest RFID technology to increase profitability for hotels, casinos, hospitals, and commercial laundry operators, announced Canada’s Casino Rama implemented its Uniform System to track and maintain the asset value of the casino resort’s 15,000 uniforms.

“Our team estimates we are saving 15 hours a day in labor with InvoTech. This is huge,“ said Helen Cooper, director of hotel and resort operations for Casino Rama, one of Canada’s premier entertainment destinations in the heart of Ontario’s Lake Country. “With our old system, we had to have people on site 24 hours per day processing each uniform item. InvoTech scans, counts and records entire racks and carts of uniforms in seconds. It is a huge increase in productivity. InvoTech also eliminated waiting lines for staff queuing to pick up uniforms. Now they swipe their ID card one time and their clean uniforms are automatically delivered to them.”
The InvoTech system communicates with Casino Rama’s White Conveyors U-Pick-It automated uniform delivery system that moves specific uniforms quickly and neatly to the appropriate employee’s hands. Casino Rama has a uniformed crew of almost 2,000.
‘A more efficient way to do business’
The InvoTech system utilizes easy-to-use touch-screen monitors and advanced UHF-RFID technology that automatically reads and records durable waterproof tags on the uniforms without manual sorting. “We did not have to build anything special to install InvoTech and start working,” said Cooper. “We were looking for a more efficient way to do business and InvoTech provides it. The system also forecasts our budget for new articles because we know how long each garment has been used. InvoTech’s training and installation team was very professional and got us up to speed quickly.”
Casino Rama will soon mark its 20-year anniversary. The property opened as a standalone casino, but now is a full service, all-suite destination resort with 289 luxury suites. “We have grown since opening and our uniforms are part of that growth. Some of our crew members have six different uniforms. InvoTech manages this perfectly; our old system couldn’t handle that much detail.”
InvoTech has hundreds of satisfied clients worldwide in more than 30 countries, including hotels, resorts, casinos, theme parks, stadiums, arenas, convention centers, medical centers, cleanrooms, and laundries.
