Representativeness: Analysis of how old the garments are and redundant stocks
Are you aware of how your employees are dressed?
It is important that your employees look the part during work. A receptionist with grey patches on his shirt or a skirt that does not close fully is not the right presentation for the company they work for. What to expect from a restaurant who’s waiters wear dingy garments?
Large hotel chains use garments distribution systems. This takes the load off housekeeping’s shoulders. The garments distribution system can provide employees with garments 24 hours a day. If someone stains his shirt during lunch, he can just as easily collect a clean shirt from the system.
Besides the availability of the garments, the registration of the use is equally important. Garments that have been washed often can start to show signs of wear and tear. These garments should be replaced before becoming dingy. Garments that are hardly used (because they are redundant) also deteriorate. Over time, they will start to show signs of discolouration and lose their fit.
A Garments Distribution System registers the use of the garments and the user. Garments write-off can be easily mapped, based on the number of laundry services the garments receive. After 30 washes, the linen room employee can determine whether they can go for another 10. This way, you can make sure your employees always look the part.
If an employee fails to wash his garments regularly, it negatively affects his performance towards the guest or customer. The garments distribution system can also report on the frequency of use. You get an insight in the excess garments, both in the positive and the negative sense of the word.
Based on the user statistics, you can also plan the replacement of garments. If garments are washed an average of three times a month and last for 50 washes, you know exactly what garments to keep an eye on. The system helps you to determine whether there are sufficient garments in circulation and what garments need to be replaced in the year to come. You are no longer left with unpleasant surprises.
Reasons aplenty why large hotels use a garments distribution system:
- 24/7 garments availability for permanent and temporary staff
- Insight in the use of the garments protocol.
- Garments write-off based on the age of the garments or on the use.
- Staff always looks representative
