ThistleDown Racino Implements InvoTech Systems to Protect Investment in 10,000 Designer Uniforms

InvoTech Systems, Inc., a leading provider of systems that integrate the latest RFID technology to increase profitability for hotels, casinos and commercial laundry operators, announced ThistleDown Racino implemented its Uniform System to track uniforms for its 900 team members. ThistleDown Racetrack recently reopened as a Racino (racetrack-casino) operated by Caesars Entertainment with custom uniforms for its new operation.

InvoTech protects substantial uniform investment efficiently, effectively
“InvoTech gives us an accurate, real-time inventory of all staff uniforms to protect our clothing investment efficiently and effectively,” said TreVina Johnson, employee labor relations manager for ThistleDown Racino. ThistleDown recently reopened under Caesars Entertainment with horse racing and video lottery terminals. The Caesars transition included new uniforms for all 900 team members. “We had a major change in our operation and are now the sister property to Caesars Horseshoe Casino Cleveland, which also uses InvoTech. We use InvoTech to assign each uniform to specific team members and track the daily uniform requirement for all departments. This ensures we maintain continuous ‘room PAR,’ that is our wardrobe-room par stock, for all staff in every department.”

Other Caesars Entertainment properties that use the InvoTech Uniform
System include Harrah’s Casino Ak-Chin, Harrah’s Casino Lake Charles, Harrah’s Casino St. Louis, Horseshoe Casino Cleveland, and Horseshoe Casino Cincinnati. Additionally, Caesars’ new Horseshoe Casino Baltimore, which is expected to open in 2014, will install the InvoTech Uniform System for its grand opening.

Easy coding for 10,000 uniforms
“It was an easy process to code our uniforms and enter them in the system for employee accountability,” said Johnson. “Some of our staff launders their uniforms at home, and some departments, like our F & B teams, have uniforms dry cleaned. The InvoTech system tracks uniform movement and provides reports that ensure we always have the right number of uniforms for all team members.  It would be a labor-intensive job to track uniform inventories and processing by hand.”

InvoTech clients include MGM Resorts International, Hyatt Hotels, Marriott, Hilton Hotels, Universal Studios Florida, Wynn Resort Las Vegas and Macau, Madison Square Garden, MSR-FSR Laundry, Empire State Building, Loews Hotels, Mandarin Oriental, and other leading companies. InvoTech’s international customers include the Venetian Macau Resort Hotel; MGM Grand Macau; Four Seasons Macau; Grand Hyatt Shanghai, China; Burswood Entertainment Complex, Australia; Sheraton Seoul, Korea; Resorts World Sentosa Singapore; and Palace Resorts, Mexico.
