InvoTech Systems Inc, provider of the GIMS Uniform, Linen and Laundry Systems, announced the world-class Fallsview Casino Resort in Niagara Falls, Ontario has selected the GIMS Uniform System with UHF-RFID technology. The GIMS inventory control system will interface with a White Conveyors U-Pick-It System to provide 24-hour automated uniform distribution to the property's 3,500 uniformed team members. Plans call for the new uniform inventory tracking system to be fully operational in September 2011.

“We selected GIMS to achieve greater labor efficiency, stronger uniform tracking controls, and to maintain a perpetual inventory of our substantial garment investment for our 3,500 uniformed staff,” said Andrei Kun, executive director of resort operations for Fallsview Casino Resort. “GIMS will communicate with an automated uniform delivery system from White Conveyers. Staff members only have to present their employee ID card to an RFID reader and the system will place a clean uniform in their hands in less than a minute.”

“The Fallsview Casino Resort is an ideal operation to benefit from the GIMS Uniform System using UHF-RFID technology,” said Jeff Welles, vice president of InvoTech. “GIMS uses durable UHF-RFID tags that enable the most efficient management of any business' garment inventory to save time and money. The system provides substantial cost savings from the reduction of lost uniform items and enhanced operating efficiency, and Fallsview will realize additional labor savings with GIMS interfaced to the White Conveyors automated uniform distribution system.”

The GIMS UHF-RFID tracking systems is able to scan, inventory, and generate reports for entire carts of uniforms at one time because UHF-RFID antennas read at a greater distance than legacy systems. This creates a huge efficiency boost for the labor-intensive job of hand counting and manual recordkeeping.

InvoTech is the world leader in RFID uniform and linen inventory tracking for hotels, casinos, resorts, theme parks and related businesses. The GIMS real time tracking system increases inventory accuracy and reduces manual labor. UHF-RFID tags are sewn into uniforms that enable automated recordkeeping as uniforms move in and out of the Uniform Department and to and from laundries.

Fallsview Casino Resort is a $1 billion gaming complex that offers a million dollar view of Niagara Falls. Outside, the casino gives visitors a prime vantage point to see both the American Falls and the Canadian Horseshoe Falls. Inside, hand painted ceilings and old world European charm make the Niagara Fallsview Casino Resort a feast for the eyes. Fallsview Casino Resort is owned by the Government of Ontario through the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) and operated by a consortium of five companies, the Falls Management Group LP.
