2. Create an invoice of the articles that were picked up from the customer premises and enter it into the software.

3. Tag all the articles according to the guidelines provided by the company.

4. Scan all the articles for any damage and in case any damage / fault is found prior to processing the articles, you must inform the customer using company’s software.

5. Process all the garments as per the customer's requirements and company guidelines.

6. Deliver the articles to the respective customer.

7. Ensure full payment at the time of delivery for the service rendered and update the company’s software accordingly.
