    Anyone having luck with a POS system out there for a laundromat (wash, dry, fold) and dry clean drop store? Tried clean cloud and not impressed.

    Brian Henderson. Washdryfoldpos.com. Do your research, but you will come back to him.

    Yes Brian Henderson's System is the best way to go, I'm about to buy a 2nd System for my 2nd store shortly. It's so easy that even my 65 year old employee learned it quickly

    Best System by far

    I already installed two of Brian Henderson's systems.  They are easy to use for the attendants and the customers like the professional looking ticket they get.  The future for his Wash/Dry/Fold POS also holds some additions so the system will not grow old before its time.  These new systems were a positive change from my prior w/d/f systems.

    I checked out a few POS systems.  CSI is still the best.  Specially if you do commercial accounts as well , regards to the dry cleaning  you can up charge customers and a lot of different things, also can print out reports, I believe it is one of the best systems out there    I wanted to change POS system. But didn't find any better.  I would love to hear.

    I use Square POS. The POS is free and pays for itself with credit card fees. For 25 a month plus $5 per employee it gives you a timeclock and handles payroll (files and pays taxes, mails W-2's). Tickets can be opened in customers names for WDF. Item setup is pretty robust.

    Hey Gail - why Square POS over Clean Cloud or WashDryFold POS?

    Hello Todd. I don't know anything about Curbside, but if you are searching for a POS, take a look at Wash/Dry/Fold POS which I changed to about 3 months ago.  It is a powerful system which can be tailored to your specific needs.

    Hi everyone, We use Springboard and are very happy with their team and their products. If you have specific questions let me know and I'll try to help.
         Btw, an often overlooked part of due diligence is to look behind the curtain. Talk to them about their future plans and strategies. Who do they want to be when they grow up? Imo, that will tell you whether they're more interested in their own local businesses or in YOUR business and supporting you. Over the next few years a few of these companies are going to start separating themselves from the rest. You want a system and team that'll still be around and blazing trails in the industry.

    Dave,

    You make a great point as to where a company will be at in a few years.
    Will they be around to support you with glitches and sell you parts.
    There is always a "shaking out" period that eventually comes for any new business technology.

    I think this point can apply to VTMs as well....even equipment.
    I remember my first mat back in 1976 was equipped with Zanussi washers, made in Italy. They were CLEARLY superior to anything else at the time, even the Wasco Gen 3's and Gen 4's!
    Beautiful washers for way back then!
    However, they were imported washers and the company decided to stop exporting them to America somewhere around 1979.

    Paulie B,

    I remember the Italian Zanussi washers & the accolades for them at the time ... I never did know how long the operators who bought them were able to keep them going ... considering the OEM somewhat pulling out of the USA.

    I suppose the same principles can apply to a mostly software based product such as being discussed.  Not sure ... as an exception ... some internationally based companies may have longer support life than some USA only based.  Who has the better crystal ball?

    Hey Paulie/Dave/Michael - You guys nailed it regarding "staying power"..When I built my software 8 years ago it was only for me to use...so making it work for the masses was never a thought...but as interest grew for better technology for POS, pickup/delivery, customer alerts etc.. I started adding scale-able features that would allow for all types of operators to scale...at their speed so to say...I'm up to version 14...meaning I've made 14 upgrades in the past 8 years...this is a very telling sign when looking at software for business use...any software company should be making at least 1-2 major upgrades a year...and some of the upgrades could be behind the scenes stuff....like cyber security protection....also, do they have there own internal staff...outsourcing some work is ok but is the majority of the work done in-house or not... coders are finicky and fights will happen and most of them will take there ball and go home if they don't like the game... so if you are a software company and you outsource a majority of your work that is a HUGE liability to the end user... so when looking into software to use for your business; outside the obvious "what features" they have...ask about the nuts and bolts as well...If you guys have anything else let me know...happy to talk shop...In fact, Paulie we haven't spoken in awhile perhaps were do...take care fellas...Rick

    I have 2 W-D-F POS systems from Brian Henderson and the installation and operation have been well accepted by our employees and customers. It is a system backed up by pcAmerica and looks like 2 upgrades a year are planned for enhancements.  I would highly recommend you look at this system before buying one.
