Laundry Tracking Systems
Laundry can be tracked in a number of ways. The simplest form of tracking is a handwritten washable tag applied using a safety pin to each item. This is both time consuming and prone to error not least of which is the ability to read someone’s handwriting!
A more popular method is to apply pre-printed tag numbers onto each item and staple copies of the numbers set to the till ticket. Once the items have been processed the items can be reallocated to their respective till tickets via the numbering system. This is the predominant system in use in today’s Dry Cleaners.

This enables the functionality of the Till Ticket, Numbered tags and Client records to be interrelated in Digital form. The Latest Generation of these software actually print Barcode labels on demand allowing for digital tracking from start to finish.
