Scrubs and Hospital Security
26 Jul

I received a call from one of our salesmen the other day.  He asked, “Do we make any ugly scrubs for any of our customers?”

“Say again.”

“I have a customer that is looking for really bright scrubs, in something like construction orange.”

I get it, for vendors visiting the hospital. We used to ship buttercup colored scrubs to a Midwest hospital, for their visitors. Hospitals like to keep track of vendors wandering the halls. If they are in a bright color, they’re easy to distinguish from hospital staff. 

The Rise of Scrubs with No Pockets
28 Jun

I’ve been working in the customer service department for over 14 years, and it seems like there isn’t a day that goes by where I don’t learn something new. Recently I had a customer ask, “when are you going to start providing clean scrubs, especially warm-ups?”  The term “clean scrubs” baffled me.  We provide inter suits in our Worklon line; they look sort of like regular scrub tops and bottoms but are worn under cleanroom garments. However, apparently this wasn’t what she had in mind.

Part Two, the up and coming innovation: RFID Technology

This week, we're picking back up on the rapidly emerging industry of RFID Technology. As I had mentioned in last month's blog post, the amount of advantages to using this technology is unbeatable.

Below, I go in depth on each of these categories to provide a better understanding of just how important RFID Technology is within a laundry and rental system.

12 Apr

The Commercial Laundry Business is tough and gets tougher every day.  Our customers are smarter through the ways that they conduct and run their business, while demanding a wider selection of products and services.  Competition continues to be a driving price pressure and controlling production and labor costs is an increasing challenge. Innovation is the key to success. Many laundries are turning to innovative applications of Radio Frequency Identification technology (RFID) as a way to deal with these challenges.

                In the last couple of weeks, I’ve encountered healthcare stories that have either caused me to think, “Wow that was a great idea!” Or caused me to think, “are you kidding me?!”
