Three of the biggest operating expenses incurred by textile maintenance operators are production labor, merchandise and delivery costs. Shortages are the most frequent complaint that textile service operators receive.
Advanced technology provides textile maintenance operators with greatly increased speed when counting soiled textiles. It also allows for the verification of the content of bundles of items, while speeding the processing of soiled and clean textiles through a processing facility. By verifying what’s going out on delivery vehicles it can eliminate special deliveries caused by plant discrepancies. Many operators that have embraced technology have experienced a reduction in labor costs on average of 1-3% and a reduction in merchandise costs of 2-4%.
