LaundryCard can help you make more money. Show me how

Collect your store from
one centralized location

LaundryCard replaces all of the traditional coin mechanisms with networked card readers in a store, Customers get a loyalty card from one of the X-Changer kiosks by inserting cash or a credit card. The value added to the loyalty card can then be used to start the customers desired machine.

All sales and start information is recorded centrally and available for reporting and analysis. And since there are no coins used to start the machines there is nothing to collect except the cash receipts located in the X-Changer kiosks. Collections are fully auditable so you can even let someone else pull the money without worry of shrinkage.

A store that would normally take 2 hours to collect with coins, can now take 5 minutes, giving you time to manage your business rather than work it.

Manage remotely
from any internet device

Use the power of the Internet!

LaundryCard has been designed to work with any device that has an Internet browser. You can remotely control, view, and configure the system from a smart phone, tablet or PC. Run sales reports, configure specials, change vend prices all from the comfort of your home or office.

Manage service repairs
with equipment status screen

Lets face it, things break. The faster you repair your equipment the faster its making money for you again.
