Customer Needs

The company needed to gain a full understanding of workwear management operations to reduce costs, increase efficiency and maintain compliance to pharma industry hygiene standards. The Taro management team also expressed a need to improve availability, increase convenience and ensure a smooth transition to a new fully automated solution.

Requirements

The Taro management team defined these operational requirements:

  • Increase Availability and Convenience: Provide around-the–clock distribution of uniforms to employees and save valuable work time

The Solution

To meet Taro operational requirements, Polytex made these recommendations:
