Laundry rooms are essential for multi-unit housing, and property managers should consider upgrading these facilities with modern technologies for the benefit of their tenants. The traditional coin-operated machines no longer cut it. They are inconvenient for residents and even risky for owners, given that they are more prone to theft, damage, and maintenance issues. The good news is that there’s a better option available: a smart card payment system. LaundryConnect is Automatic Laundry’s smart card payment system revolutionizing laundry rooms everywhere.
Convenience for residents
The smart card payment system eliminates the need for coins, which means no more searching for change or making trips to the bank to get quarters. Instead, residents simply load funds onto their smart card, and they’re ready to go. They can check their balance and add funds online or at a kiosk, making laundry day a hassle-free experience. With this system, residents don’t have to worry about having exact change or carrying cash, making their laundry experience a better one.
Increased revenue for property owners
One of the biggest benefits of upgrading to a smart card payment system is that it can increase the revenue for the property owner. The reason is that these machines often offer higher rates of returns than coin machines. The smart card payment systems can also support different pricing structures, such as higher rates for washers or dryers during peak hours, which maximizes profits. Plus, it encourages residents to do laundry on your property instead of going to a laundromat.
Enhance security and track usage
The traditional coin-operated machines can be targets for vandalism or theft. But with smart card payment systems, there’s no focus on coins, and it ensures secure transactions. The systems track every transaction, so owners can monitor them and see the usage patterns of their washers and dryers. This monitoring can help owners decide on the most beneficial time to schedule maintenance or upgrade machines.
Easy installation and maintenance
The installation of the smart card payment system is relatively easy and can be done without disruption to your current laundry setup. Unlike coin-operated machines, smart card payment systems have fewer moving parts that can break down, which translates into lower maintenance costs. Furthermore, software updates are simple to implement, and fixing any issues is far more accessible compared to coin-operated machines.
Encourage eco-friendly behavior
Finally, Smart card payment systems can stimulate eco-friendly behavior by encouraging owners to invest in state-of-the-art, energy-efficient machines. These machines can help save both the environment and the cost of energy for residents. Plus, the smart card payment systems automatically turn off machines when they’re not in use, which saves money and encourages eco-friendly behavior.
As you can see, upgrading your laundry facilities with a smart card payment system can yield significant benefits. Investing in modern technologies can boost convenience for residents, increase revenue for owners, enhance security, and promote eco-friendly behavior. At the same time, these machines promote a hassle-free laundry experience that encourages residents to stay on your property, building loyalty and ultimately increasing your revenue streams.
