Automatic Laundry, a leading laundry service provider to the college market in the Northeast, has partnered with the EF Academy in Thornwood, NY to implement its proprietary LaundryConnect™ Pay, a mobile payment app platform aimed at revolutionizing the way students living on campus pay for laundry at the washer or dryer.   Students simply download the app from the Apple App Store or Google Play store (Android app), register with a debit or credit card and start the machine by scanning the QR code clearly marked on the laundry machine.  

Replacing Old Laundry Payment Systems

Automatic Laundry replaced the antiquated hardware laundry payment system provided by a local service provider with LaundryConnect™ Pay.  Students can now easily load funds anywhere and at any time with their smartphones and can seamlessly purchase laundry services without having to physically handle cash or use a card. The mobile platform accepts all major card brands.

Managing Machines with the LaundryConnect System

Additionally, Automatic Laundry also implemented its proprietary LaundryConnect™ that links the commercial washers and dryers installed on campus to the internet.  Students now have access to a laundry monitoring web page that shows the availability of machines in real-time and can opt to be e-mailed or texted when machines become available, or when their laundry cycle is finished — the ultimate time management tool.  Additionally, real-time service alerts are sent from the washers and dryers directly to Automatic Laundry’s service team. Automatic Laundry is now able to preemptively repair equipment before students and staff become aware of the malfunctioning machine — remotely or on-site.

Automatic Laundry, a preferred service provider for more than 50 years, manages and services community and student laundry facilities throughout the Northeast. For more information, please visit our website or call 617-969-4340, ext. 137.
