Soaring Eagle Casino and Resort automates uniform tracking

Soaring Eagle Casino and Resort implemented InvoTech's UHF-RFID uniform management system to automate uniform tracking, accounting, and reporting for 20,000 newly designed uniforms. The InvoTech uniform system interfaces with the White Conveyors U-Pick-It system to automatically deliver uniforms to staff. Soaring Eagle previously managed its 20,000 uniforms manually.

"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."

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.”
