Understanding Your Market: When it comes to laundry facilities in the College/University market, no company understands this demographic better than Setomatic Systems. With a staff comprised of many recent graduates, we are fully aware of the priorities of students, and understand that Laundry is very low on their list. With college students focus being on academic work, sports, and friends it is important to make the laundry experience for them as convenient and seamless as possible. This is why the SpyderWash Payment System is a perfect fit for both students and the operators of laundry facilities.
From a student’s perspective, they want to be able to go to a washer or dryer and start the machine immediately using their Credit/Debit Card, Smart Phone or Loyalty Card. Although our system also accepts coin, students prefer to pay for their laundry the same way they pay for their food, school books, and every other purchase. In fact, after interviewing many different students from Colleges/Universities across the nation we found that the number one reason students do not do their Laundry is because they do NOT have any or enough quarters. By only accepting quarters, you are taking the low priority task of doing laundry, and making it an inconvenient one as well.
Student Loyalty: SpyderWash also incorporates a loyalty card application which can be beneficial for both students and operators. Our system allows you to create custom loyalty cards, which enables you to offer discounts to students when they revalue these cards. Our loyalty card application also allows you to track each student card by logging onto your SpyderWash account. Once on your account you can track the amount used on each card, the amount remaining on that card, and send the students an email directly from your website.
Changing Times: One key fact that we also know about students is they like to keep up with the current technological trends. With almost every student carrying a smart phone, we knew it was important to create a system that accepted current and emerging payment technologies. This is why we created our system with the capabilities of accepting Contactless Credit/Debit Cards and NFC Mobile Wallet Payments. Students can now take out their smart phone or contactless card, tap it to our reader, and pay for their laundry.
