Streamlining Laundry Processes: How Technology Enhances Efficiency

Maintaining a household can be an overwhelming task at times. The average person dedicates over two hours per day to household chores.

If you own an apartment building, that can make it more difficult for residents to get access to your laundry equipment.

What if someone could cut down that time? With the right laundry technology, you can do this for at least one of your household chores.

Read on to find out how to increase your laundry speed.

Use a Mobile App

One of the best things you can do for your commercial laundry machines is to have a mobile app attached to them. By connecting a mobile app to these machines, you can give people better access to their laundry’s status.

Let’s face it, most people are not going to sit in front of the washing machine during the entire cycle. If they do not time their return appropriately, that could mean delays in the laundry speed.

Giving people a mobile app allows them to check on their laundry virtually. It also increases the chances of people returning to their laundry at the appropriate time.

The average person checks their phone 96 times per day. With that in mind, you can have your mobile app send notifications to customers when their laundry is nearly finished. That should allow you to streamline the laundry process for your entire building.

Improving Inventory Management

Laundry technology does not just have to be used by customers. You can use it to improve your own operations by improving your organization.

With this technology, you can neatly organize all of the supplies that you need to keep your laundry equipment running properly.

An example can be if you go through a lot of laundry detergent. Using laundry technology can give you a better idea of how much you have left, how often you use it, and how often you need to stock up on laundry detergent.

Doing this can help ensure that you never run out of any supplies that you need. Also, it can help avoid any potential downtime for your laundry machines.

Tracking Maintenance Needs

Going off of the above, another thing you need to do to avoid downtime is to stay on top of maintenance needs. That means addressing routine maintenance needs before they turn into bigger problems.

One way you can do this is by using Internet of Things technology. This is essentially a sensor that can send you an alert as to when one of your laundry machines needs maintenance.

That allows you to address a problem sooner rather than later. As a result, it will likely minimize the downtime for that laundry machine.

Improve Your Laundry Technology

These are just three ways laundry technology can help streamline your process. It can help you improve efficiency, stay on top of your inventory needs, and stay on top of your maintenance needs.

All of this should help you increase your laundry speed and reduce downtime.
