How Softrol Helped
With an expanding rental market, mostly due to the mining industry, Vogue Linen reached out to Softrol Systems to replace their antiquated garment sortation system. Requirements included the need for a cost-effective solution that provides full automation and improved operational efficiency while fitting into the available floor space.
Softrol’s semi-automated garment sortation solution was selected, which provides up to 1200-garments processed per hour with 1 or 2 operators, depending upon demand, and is easily expandable for future growth. This floor-supported Softrol Sort system operates through the use of RFID tags and standard hangers. It fits nicely within the 6000-sq. ft. storage area that was cleared-out to accommodate the new advancement. Processing with standard hangers and no mother hooks saves considerable floor space and significantly reduces the initial system cost and long-term maintenance expenses.
“We are very proud to serve the folks at Vogue Linen and we appreciate the opportunity to provide them with the very best sortation solution,” says Dave Smith, VP Sales & Marketing, Softrol.
