TROOPER, Pa. — BCC Payments, a laundry-focused payment and control systems company, has created a free WashDryGo application platform for Laundromat owners to use during and after the COVID-19 pandemic.
The WashDryGo app can help store owners manage the flow of customers and maintain safe social distancing during their wash and dry cycles, the company says.
The app can be used with any brand of equipment in both attended and unattended stores. Employees or customers can easily set up accounts with just their phone number and receive notifications when the cycles are complete.
“The WashDryGo concept helps laundry owners protect their customers by encouraging them to social distance, or wait outside during wash and dry cycles, then leave the store to safely fold their clothes at home,” says Tom Merkh, president and chief technology officer of BCC.
Upon learning from a Coin Laundry Association update that it can be difficult for Laundromats to safely and effectively enforce social distancing while also keeping employees safe from unnecessary contact, the company decided to create the free solution that notifies customers throughout the laundry process.
“It was important, when designing the WashDryGo application, that it would work for any Laundromat, regardless of its current payment system,” Merkh adds.
Anyone can register to receive the app at WashDryGo.com. It’s also available from Apple’s App Store and Google Play.
