Professionalism in clothes rotation management
Zosia is connected with the central database via the Internet and it gathers all information about the circulating clothes. Zosia’s main duty is to automatically collect workers’ clothes, and also record and share information about the received clothes. The return process is very fast and easy; a worker places his clothes with an RFID tag next to the reader, after which the shelf for clothes is opens and the worker is able to chute down his clothes. The whole process takes a few seconds. The moment of chuting is displayed on the screen (and it is also recorded with the view to preventing any abuse). The chute will open only if the enclosed tag is in the central system; it will not open in any another case. Using Zosia as a complementary solution to the existing system can bring many benefits:
- Speeding up the process of clothes returns
- Zosia could be placed anywhere without occupying much space.
- This vending machine operates 24/7, which is highly important especially in shift work.
- The process is maintenance free and no extra workers are needed.
- Full information about the quantity and assortment which is waiting for the pickup and the laundry
- Low costs of exploitation
