Company Background Card Concepts is a leading innovator of automated payment systems for the self service Laundromat industry.”Started back in 2000, all of the products and services for which CCI produces are built around the idea of automating and simplifying the operation of running a vended Laundromat. CCI’s has family roots actively involved in the Laundromat industry for over 35 years. This experience has been essential to the company’s growth, with over 500 Laundromats across the US and Canada. CCI’s core product the LaundryCard replaces all traditional change accepting, laundry machines with kiosks. These kiosks dispense 'debit cards' that customers can add value to and start machines. The system maintains the customer’s card balance and allows them to revalue their card with either cash or a credit card. The company also manufactures and distributes other ancillary products that compliment the Laundromat operations. http://youtu.be/1WINHobNuJU
The Solution Sold to The Customer “Card system is the only way to go. On top of that I like to adjust the price by the penny. It also allows me from a remote location to set pricing, pull employee hours, anything that I can do onsite I can pull from a remote location and being 75 miles away from my closest store, this is very important. For marketing we use the Wash to Win, Big Bill Bonus, and Time of Day Pricing. We also register cards to provide customer information and use most of the reporting information for bookkeeping purposes. The customers truly enjoy the ability to obtain bonus dollars through Wash to Win points and the extra discount provided by the Big Bill Bonus capability. The Time of Day Pricing has increased my midweek business by 20%.” -Doug Barron - Owner of Speed Wash Laundry
