Solutions for Care Facilities

Efficient laundry management for your workwear

Solutions for care facilities

The optimal system for workwear management

Reduce your costs and increase hygiene

You, as a resident director, housekeeping manager, or person responsible for several care facilities, want to be sure that your employees always work with hygienically impeccable garments. With a laundry management system you can control whether they comply with the hygiene concept and at the same time put aside some other problems:

  • High administrative effort
  • Time-consuming and costly
  • Bottlenecks in the laundry supply
  • Laundry has to be bought again all the time
  • Garments are stashed or disappear
  • No overview of availability

With the deister electronic laundry management solution teXtag – especially for the healthcare sector – you can easily automate the dispensing, return and management of workwear and transparently map the entire laundry cycle in the future. For both centralised and decentralised dispensing and return of workwear, this includes the removal of dirty laundry to the external or in-house laundry and the delivery of the processed garments. The Commander Connect software can automatically transmit order and collection processes to the textile service provider, e.g. if the stock falls below a previously configured minimum level. This solution simplifies the process for your employees, reduces the overall administrative effort in your care facility and ensures seamless inventory control and more planning security – that‘s what we call economic efficiency.

Why you need such a system now

Workwear is increasingly becoming a sign of distinction and therefore requires special hygiene and control.

By using our solution to control whether your employees use fresh garments on a daily basis, you can actively support or even improve your hygiene concept.

You can specify the laundry change cycle and check whether everyone keeps to it. The software keeps complete track of all laundry movements. Furthermore, thanks to our laundry cabinets, there will be no more garments lying around openly on shelves or in lockers, where viruses and bacteria can easily spread over time. Using our software, you can check how long an item has been in the cabinet and see which are no longer fresh and may already be contaminated before they have even been used.

Intelligent cabinet systems

Automatic, time-saving and compact

The intelligent cabinet system comprises of dispensing and return cabinets, which manage the dispensing and return of garments and provide garments at the locations where employees actually need them. This reduces the distances covered by employees in order to obtain fresh garments.

The intelligent cabinet system automatically records the user and the garments removed or returned and stores all transactions in a controller, until they are retrieved by the higher-level system. Each dispensing and return cabinet is a standalone unit. This means that the individual cabinets are extremely flexible in terms of their location.

Thanks to the compact dimensions of the cabinets, only a small area is required for installation. The dispensing cabinets can be opened simultaneously, allowing several employees to obtain clean laundry at the same time – thereby avoiding long waiting times.

Intelligent UHF transponders

The laundry itself knows where it belongs

Each garment is marked with a UHF transponder. This electronic tagging enables automatic management of the garments and documentation of the life cycle.

A textile transponder is essential and absolutely necessary for the introduction of an RFID-based laundry management system. Here, the transponder from deister electronic does not necessarily have to be used. We are also able to integrate most of the transponders commonly available on the market into our system.

The right software solution for every application
