Employees at the Fallsview Casino Resort, located in Niagara Falls, Canada, are sewing ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) radio frequency identification tags into tens of thousands of garments comprising employee uniforms, as part of a system that will provide visibility into the cleaning and reissuing of the outfits to workers, as well as automating a portion of that process. The solution is slated to be taken live next month.
RFID readers in the facility's laundry area will track when each uniform is sent to be cleaned, along with the time of laundering and when that garment is ready for reuse. Conveyors will transport the clean uniforms to locking windows outside the laundry area, to be picked up by the resort's 3,500 restaurant, hotel and casino workers at the beginning of each shift. Not only will this improve the efficiency of providing staff members with uniforms, but it will also allow the resort to manage how often the garments are laundered, and when they need to be replaced.
