“C-Start offers a win-win for site owners and carwash customers. It is designed to accommodate the business owner who wants to streamline payment processes, and the carwash user who prefers a cleaner, easier-to-use system that can be managed through a simple swipe of their credit card or input of a code,” Richard Carpenter, director of product development for Unitec, said in the release. “This unit offers a solution for those who would rather not handle and manage cash.”
