As unique as a fingerprint: Barcodes give textiles and other articles an identity
With a barcode label you can easily identify and track inventory, stock utilisation and many more things. In fact, you can even monitor the lifecycle of an item of laundry to ensure it's tracked and controlled precisely.
Barcoded Label solutions are still used in many industries such as in hotels for uniform and linen inventory management as well as in commercial dry cleaner facilities.
The reason for this is because they offer a very simple yet ingenious way of tracking garments to be cleaned through your facility, making sure they are returned to their rightful owner. A barcode allows you to assign attributes relating to the owner of the garment as well as any physical attributes of the garment itself. So, even if the exact same garment came in from two different owners you would still be able to identify which one belongs to which owner.
