Wash Club: The Club App Built for the Car Wash Industry

The customer calls in. Months ago they called, or sent a letter, or emailed the office to cancel their membership, but they just noticed on their credit card statement that they’ve been charged ever since. They want a refund, for the entire amount, or else.

It’s a situation that car wash operators and any business with a membership program experiences routinely, and policies should be in place to help limit misunderstandings and streamline the account management process. But ultimately traditional membership programs force the customer to depend on car wash personnel to manage their account for them—they don’t have direct control.  

Wash Club: The Membership App Developed Specifically for the Car Wash Industry

Wash Club was developed by Tommy Car Wash Systems in cooperation with Superoperator to give the car wash industry a modernized option for car wash membership management. It’s a fully featured solution specific to car wash operations, and it’s available now!

How it Works:

From the customer’s perspective, Wash Club is the app they download from their regular app store. They pull it up, select their specific provider (from all participating car washes using the program) and are able to view and purchase their membership from their device.

All it takes is customer and payment information, and their license plate number. From then on they can visit the wash as a regular member, and make revisions or even cancel their account themselves, at any time, no phone calls required.

They have control and convenience, and the automatization involved naturally streamlines customer service, allowing a smaller team to manage more customers with less difficulty.

License Plate Recognition Built-In

Wash Club is more than an app. It’s a technology suite that’s bringing advanced, customized license plate recognition to more and more participating washes.

It is absolutely possible to enhance a radio-tag based membership system with an app system. But the best application of the technology integrates license plate recognition, as the combination gives customers the ability to sign up vehicles or make modifications wirelessly, with no car wash employee involvement. This lowers the barrier to entry and eliminates both the time and cost involved with applying and activating IR tags on-site.

And this compressive hardware + software package is already developed, ready to deploy, and supported one a constant basis by a team with a deep understanding of car wash operations.

Five Ways the Totally Tommy Car Wash Design Reduces Car Wash Labor

Ask most car wash managers (or retail business managers in general) what the hardest part of running the business is and they’ll likely tell you that it’s not the equipment, the materials, or the customers – it’s managing the people. Even with a fantastic team the work that goes into balancing everyone’s schedules, hiring, and training requires a tremendous amount of time and energy.

License Plate Readers Find Success in Car Wash Applications

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags were a revolution in the car wash industry, giving operators a simple, low-maintenance method to manage subscription membership programs. These memberships, which include loyalty programs and unlimited clubs, stand as a perfect win-win for customers who want to maintain their vehicle’s appearance with more frequent monthly washes at a lower cost as well as sponsoring car washes looking to build a steady customer base. Once installed in the customers’ vehicle, the RFID tags work with the car wash database and point of sale systems to allow automatic wash admittance and wash package selection per the customer’s chosen membership level.
