LOS ANGELES, CA – March 14, 2018 -- InvoTech Systems Inc. announced the recent upgrade of its Uniform System at the Thunder Valley Casino Resort. InvoTech Systems is the leading provider of advanced Linen Management, Laundry and Uniform Systems that integrate the latest RFID technology to increase profitability for hotels, resorts, casino operators, sports arenas, convention centers and theme parks.

InvoTech's Uniform System establishes a perpetual uniform inventory and has extensive reporting capabilities to determine and forecast appropriate uniform purchases. The system tracks uniform inventory without manually sorting and hand-counting. Uniform cleaning costs are entered into InvoTech and reports may be quickly generated to audit laundry expenses to update budgets. The improved processes and information provided translates to significant cost saving benefits by eliminating losses, reducing purchases, and lowering laundry expenses and labor costs.
The RFID technology upgrade will provide additional cost-saving benefits by automating manual tasks that were previously required. Specialized waterproof RFID tags are discreetly attached to each uniform piece. The InvoTech Uniform System automatically tracks RFID tagged uniform pieces when issued to employees and as it is shipped to and received back from the laundry. Previously, garments were manually scanned one-at-a-time, a time consuming process that now will be eliminated.
“We’ve been using the InvoTech uniform system for 15-years and it really proved to be efficient and reliable. Knowing our uniform inventory is an important investment, we rely on the system to manage our entire uniform inventory and the employees’ assignments. Now, with the upgrade, we can see how the RFID technology can improve our operations” said Kristina Hunter, Manager of Internal Maintenance and Uniforms at Thunder Valley Casino
The RFID technology allows for multiple uniforms to be processed simultaneously and automatically, and the recordkeeping is also automated. The system integrates with automated uniform conveyors to distribute the uniforms to employees, and to automatically record which uniforms are taken by employees.
Oswald Lares, InvoTech director of sales, said, “By upgrading their uniform systems our customers automate their uniform operations. InvoTech customers see an ROI in the first year by eliminating losses and reducing purchases. The InvoTech RFID technology instantly provides additional savings through increased efficiency. More than 500 properties worldwide rely on InvoTech’s Uniform System to increase profitability through more efficient operations and processes.”
The InvoTech Uniform System is a paperless “green” system. The System includes an electronic signature capture terminal that records employee signatures when uniforms are assigned, which eliminates the need to print reports to obtain signatures. In addition, all system reports can be viewed on the screen or generated to PDF files to be easily viewed or shared, which also facilitates a paperless “green” system.
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.
