How Roscoe Achieved Next-Level Work Uniform Quality

Technology & Teamwork Leave Roscoe Clients Looking Good

How Roscoe Achieved Next-Level Work Uniform Quality

At Roscoe, our state-of-the-art sorting system is an impressive piece of engineering. It automates the tracking of 3,000 garments an hour, sending, shirts, pants, jackets, and coats gliding along a system of overhead rails that can divert some items for repairs, while the rest speed along to be sorted by route, by customer and finally, by individual wearer.

The new system keeps garments perfectly spaced, preventing creases and wrinkles. It uses ultrahigh frequency (UHF) tags, which provide us – and our customers – same-day confirmation of every garment picked up for cleaning. Each garment is tracked from the day it is picked up to the day it is delivered, so we always know where your uniforms are.

Faster processing makes time for additional quality control, delivering garments ready for inspection one day sooner than under the previous sorting system. Here's how it works.

Work Uniform Rental Invoices: Request a Roscoe Review

Work Uniform Rental Invoices: Request a Roscoe Review

If you're regularly dealing with invoicing issues, you likely don't have the right work uniform provider.

If you haven't had any recent issues, have you been keeping a close eye on your invoices?

Especially with the recent acquisitions of G&K and Arrow, we've heard a wide variety of complaints related to invoices, not to mention eroded service levels as key people start to leave their new corporate masters.

It's our belief that the right work uniform rental service provides more than high-quality work uniforms: they avoid shady invoicing practices and allow you to focus on your business instead of work uniform and floor mat business.

Here's what to watch out for, and what to do about it.
