Casino Reduces Purchasing & Labor Costs With RFID Inventory System
Four Winds Casinos has selected InvoTech’s Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) Multi-Property Uniform Tracking System. The InvoTech system increases profitability for clients. InvoTech enables Four Winds Casinos to centrally consolidate uniform inventory, tracking, and purchases for all properties to reduce labor and purchase costs.
Four Winds Casinos properties use InvoTech’s Multi-Property RFID Uniform System and White Conveyors' U-Pick-It delivery system to automatically deliver uniforms to employees’ hands. Four Winds properties include Four Winds New Buffalo, Four Winds Hartford, and Four Winds Dowagiac, which is scheduled to open in 2013. InvoTech centrally tracks uniform use, controls inventories, monitors laundry cycles, and consolidates purchasing for more than 10,000 uniforms. The New Buffalo and Hartford properties currently have the InvoTech system installed. Four Winds also plans to implement the system at its Dowagiac casino. InvoTech’s expertise in complete UHF RFID system integration delivers 100% control of linen inventory, 100% protection of non-theft related losses, and 98% protection of linen losses.
Four Winds launders its own uniforms and utilizes an RFID drop-chute reader to record when staff returns soiled items.
