Speed Queen is the world’s largest manufacturer of commercial laundry equipment.Its machines are legendary for their reliability, underpinningthe high performance its customers love.

For 110 years, SpeedQueen’sfocus on cutting-edge control technologyhas made it a market leader.Takingtheir fleet of launderette machines cashlesshas been made possible by the adoption of tap-and-go payments via integrated UnattendedPayments terminals from ADVAM, a ۶Ƶ company.

Quick Payback

۶Ƶ’ UnattendedPayments is the end-to-end solution that enables businesses to accept cashless payments via cards and mobile wallets. Adopting card payments has greatly increased revenue for Speed Queen, which in turn has laid a strong foundation for further growth.

“The least that we’ve experienced to date has been a 25% increase in revenue, with the largest site being a 400% increase in revenue. This is obviously a great benefit to the business and very quickly pays back the capital expense of putting card readers on machines. The new solution has increased the overall reliability of machines, while also reducing incidences of vandalism, which previously risked taking machines out of action and disrupting revenue. There’s no cash left in the machine, so there’s no incentive for people to break into them and destroy them. We don’t have bent coins and jammed coins – they are a thing of the past”. – Jason McSweeney

Happy Customers, Secure Payments

Customers prefer the modernised payment experience offered by UnattendedPayments, while eliminating the burden of cash handling has increased operational efficiency for Speed Queen.

“People like using the convenience of a card and they don’t have to carry change. We don’t have to have a change machine, which is a major security issue – the tap-and-go solution completely takes away the need for cash.” – Jason McSweeney

Further security is provided by the fact that ۶Ƶ’ UnattendedPayments terminals are fully PCI PTS 5.x compliant, meeting the latest and highest level of Secure Reading and Exchange of Data security requirements.

Improved Cash Flow

At the back end, Speed Queen benefits from the ۶Ƶ payment processing platform. This is a sophisticated payment processing engine based on ۶Ƶ’ proprietary infrastructure, which ensures clients and their customers’ payments are processed quickly and securely.

“Through the ۶Ƶ payment processing platform, we get the payments cleared every night. The payment platform reports live and if we have to make refunds, it’s a twoclick process. We can do it from a mobile phone, from our desktop computers. It’s a far better user experience for laundry customers.” – Jason McSweeney

Day-to-day support and software updates to the terminals can be activated remotely, simplifying deployment. And, in the event of support issues, the ۶Ƶ 24-hour help desk is always on hand. “That is second to none for any business I’ve been involved in. The technical support is around the clock and excellent,” added Jason.
