We are presenting Berta, the advanced clothes management system. It contains: the software, a distributing vending machine and a dependent collecting machine, the so called-chute for used clothes. Berta 7 has 126 locations for clean clothes; each of them is 16 cm by 17.5 cm. We are able to prepare a version with 252 locations; in that case each location is 8 cm by 17.5 cm. The dirty clothes chute is able to fit 250 – 300 of used items of clothing. To make the laundry operations easier inside the chute we have installed a standard laundry trolley, which is always ready to use. The chute does not have its own computer, is depends in the dispensing machine and should be located close to it. In each collecting machine we have installed a video camera which records the moment when the used clothes enter the chute; thanks to that whole process is more secure and authenticated. There is option to install inside a germicidal ultraviolet lamp.
Professional clothes flow management software
Berta 7 system distributes clothes and collect them after they have been used; the whole process is totally automatic and it does not need any extra worker attendance. Thanks to our system you have permanent access to important information, such as: at which stage the clothing is at the moment, the exact number of ready to take clothes in the customer’s place, how many pieces of clothes are circulating at the moment, how many are in use, and how many are waiting for the pickup. Thanks to that information we are able to optimize the use of our resources and also adapt the quantity of clothes to our logistic capabilities. During the returns the user has a chance to notify damage; in such a situation the laundry is being informed about the service needs, it gets immediate information about the specific items of clothing and the type of required repair. That solution is real time saver, since laundry workers do not have to check every item of clothing all the time, and they can prepare themselves for the repair. It makes the information flow better and it make the user more satisfied with the laundry service. The remote control gives an opportunity to control and optimize the whole process of laundry circulation.

How does it work?
The user logs in by sweeping his ID card or by entering his his personal identification number. He gets access to the articles and operations defined for him. The individuals who are not in the database cannot obtain anything from the vending machine.
According to the user’s permission, he can choose an option: take, add, return… A regular production worker after sweeping his card over the screen sees a lists of pictures of preselected articles with a short description. He chooses an article, its size (if such information is not in the system) and optionally also a quantity. The required location is opened automatically. The system can display certain information on the screen: the picture of articles, sizes, descriptions, and the stock level.
Berta distribution and collection system is equipped with a PC which can be accessed only by the system administrator. Optionally it could be equipped with an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) system. Berta has been equipped with a cable, wireless, or mobile Internet connection. Thanks to that we have access to exact data in real time from anywhere in world. Beside the laundry management software, Berta has its own programs which contain:
User interface is easy to use and user friendly. Our goal was to make the whole process of dispensing articles extremely short and easy. We achieved that goal by creating intuitive interface, displaying big images of articles which can be dispensed. Thanks to that the process of articles searching is simplified. All the operations are performed on a heavy duty, industrial touch screen, ready for hard work in extreme conditions.
The most voluminous part of our system is the administrator’s interface. It offers the possibility of introducing modifications in relation to individuals or whole group of workers defined by occupation, positions or divisions to which they belong. The administrator is able to perform both basic and sophisticated operations, e.g. concerning the databases of: articles; workers; sizes modification, setting the limits of quantity of available articles for workers and groups, etc. The person with the administrator’s license can operate the system from the machine level or from his own computer.
Reports and statistics
The reports module gives access to all system information, such as the history of: taken, returned, added or damaged elements, lists of articles below the minimum availability level articles, already ordered articles etc. It also offers the possibility of creating extraordinary reports.
