Santa Ana Star Casino Installs InvoTech Uniform System
to Eliminate Losses, Reduce Purchases


InvoTech System Tracks Movement of 9,000 Uniforms for Staff of 500 with Greater Efficiency

LOS ANGELES, CA – December 20, 2012InvoTech Systems, Inc., the leading provider of solutions that increase profitability for hotels, casinos, laundries and related industries, announced that Santa Ana Star Casino implemented the InvoTech Uniform System to manage its inventory of 9,000 uniforms. The system lowers uniform purchase costs and creates a more efficient uniform room operation. Please click here for information on InvoTech’s inventory management systems for efficient operations.

Santa Ana Star creates uniform room around InvoTech
“We installed InvoTech when we purchased 9,000 new uniforms for 500 of our staff. We built our uniform room with InvoTech in mind, to help manage all uniform activity with only two part-time employees,” said Peggy Morrell CCP, Director of Purchasing at Santa Ana Star Casino. “The system monitors and records each employee’s uniform assignment and provides comprehensive reporting that reduces uniform purchase costs.”

Jeff Welles, vice president of InvoTech Systems, said, “Most businesses that install InvoTech’s Uniform System realize at least a 20-percent reduction in labor costs. Clients also report they have 100-percent protection against non-theft-related losses because of the system’s comprehensive tracking of each uniform article. The improved information from our systems leads to a 5-10% savings in new purchases annually. Santa Ana Star appears to be matching or bettering these results.”

“We automatically track who each garment is assigned to. This streamlines accountability and helps cut replacement purchase costs,” Morrell said. “I oversee our entire uniform operation with two people, and together we manage 9,000 uniforms. We are amazed at how easy it is to track uniforms and have the employee information available in the system. InvoTech does a wonderful job of streamlining our operation.”
 
InvoTech users include MGM Resorts International, Hyatt Hotels, Ritz-Carlton Hotels, Hilton Hotels, Loews Hotels, Marriott, and other leading companies. InvoTech’s international uniform system clients include the Venetian Macau Resort Hotel, MGM Grand Macau, Wynn Macau, Four Seasons Macau, Burswood Entertainment Complex Australia, Sheraton Seoul Korea, and Resorts World Singapore.
