The Desert Diamond Casino West Valley in Glendale, Ariz., is using the InvoTech radio frequency ID uniform system to manage the uniform operations for complete control and accountability. The InvoTech system installed at Desert Diamond Casino West Valley manages the uniform inventory for 1,500 employees. 

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 can 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 system is easy to use for all team members and the installation and training team were very professional,” Martha Garcia, wardrobe coordinator for Desert Diamond, said in a statement.

The system includes an electronic signature capture terminal that records each employee's signature when uniforms are assigned. This increases accountability for the uniform department and creates a paperless “green” system.
