Odawa Casino Resort Reduces Costs With RFID Uniform Tracking System

The Odawa Casino Resort (OCR) has upgraded its GIMS™ Uniform System inventory software with UHF-RFID technology from InvoTech Systems, Inc. The system automates the inventory tracking and controls of thousands of uniforms worn by team members at the property. GIMS™ was initially installed at OCR in 2007 with barcode labels attached to the uniforms which were manually scanned for real-time tracking of inventory. Uniforms now have UHF-RFID tags attached that automate the inventory process.  

The Odawa Casino Resort, owned and operated by the Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians, has seen cost saving benefits provided by GIMS™ with less labor required. GIMS™ interfaces with the White Conveyors U-Pick-It System to provide 24-hour automated uniform distribution to approximately 600 Team Members.

InvoTech installed UHF-RFID readers near doors where uniform carts travel to and from the laundry trucks for hands-free accounting. InvoTech also placed readers over the doors of the property’s automated White Conveyors U-Pick-It System that delivers uniforms to employees. The system tracks when Team Members take delivery of their garments to maintain an accurate inventory of all uniforms.
