Centralized System Assigns and Tracks Specific Uniforms for Each Staff Member “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.
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.

It will also help us operate more efficiently.” Soaring Eagle previously managed its 20,000 uniforms manually.
InvoTech Gives Complete ROI Payback in One Year “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% 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% or more and reduces laundry expenses 3 to 5% and delivers up to 20% greater labor productivity.”
Waterproof UHF-RFID Tags On Every Garment Verify Accountability Soaring Eagle ordered new uniforms for all departments from multiple vendors. “Waterproof UHF-RFID tags were attached to each uniform. Our lead vendor did this before the uniforms were delivered to simplify the uniform management
process,” Smith said. “The pre-tagged uniforms were assigned to each staff member in the InvoTech system to track accountability and transfer responsibility. I anticipate the secure, verifiable accountability will save us a great deal.”
Smith explained Soaring Eagle is located in a college town and has many students on staff. “Many of our students are family members with the same last name. InvoTech quickly identifies which family member has each uniform to eliminate the possibility of confusion. If one changes a job assignment or brings us a damaged garment, we can track accountability and inventory in real time.”
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.
