The number one complaint from organizations that use another uniform delivery service is missing garments. Employee uniforms and workwear are an integral tool for your workforce. They maintain a safe, professional, and productive environment. When items are not delivered on time and to specification, it is difficult for your employees to do their jobs.

You need a reliable employee uniform delivery service that utilizes today’s most innovative tracking technology without compromising personalized customer service.

Ultra-High Frequency RFID Garment Tracking 

UHF RFID is short for “Ultra-High Frequency Radio-Frequency Identification.” Digital data is encoded on UHF RFID tags, which a data reader reads via radio waves. UHF RFID operates similarly to a barcode. The main advantage being that UHF RFID can be read outside the line of sight.

UHF RFID garment tracking keeps track of your garments through the entire laundering process. It provides essential data about individualized care for each employee uniform. For example, if your garment requires special laundering services, like Hygienically Clean Food Safety sanitization, that data is stored on the tag. The tag can also track how many times the item has been laundered, any repairs that have been completed, and other metrics. These metrics help business owners make decisions about their uniform programs.

The UHF RFID tag is small, discreet, and unobtrusive. Your workers won’t even notice it’s there.

Automated Garment Sorting

While UHF RFID tags streamline service, automated garment sorting takes the use of UHF RFID tags to the next level.

Automated sorting tracks garments through the entire wash process, including repair requests and status. When the employee uniforms are clean, the automatic sorting system arranges garments by route, customer, and individual wearer. Garments are bundle verified and placed on a route-specific storage rail ready for delivery. Garments can be turned around in as little as 24-hours. The process saves 1,000s of person-hours of manual work. Employees can then spend time on quality control, repairs, and other service-enhancing tasks.

Together, UHF RFID chips and automated garment sorting can read up to 1,000 garments at a time in less than ten seconds with 99.9% accuracy. This tracking level ensures that employee uniforms receive the care they require and nearly eliminates the potential for lost garments during the wash process.
