EverWash and omniX Labs partner to launch new data capture and fraud prevention product

PHILADELPHIA — EverWash has partnered with MIT startup omniX Labs to launch an exciting new product for the carwash industry called WashX, according to a press release.

WashX uses existing security cameras to capture and report customer data that gives carwash operators an in-depth look at customer behavior, relieves concerns about fraud and provides the insight necessary to get the most of repeat customers, the release continued.

EverWash believes this product can help take license plate technology in the carwash industry to the next level, the release added.

“When we were approached by omniX Labs to collaborate, we were excited about the possibilities,” said EverWash Chief Revenue Officer Scott Pashley. “With WashX, we are able to provide a new level of customer insight that will allow wash operators to run their businesses more smartly and efficiently. We look forward to continuing to innovate in the industry by introducing this intelligent and innovative product to the market.”

WashX is something entirely new in the carwash industry, empowering operators to understand and leverage customer data like never before, the release noted.

Powered by omniX Labs, this promises to enhance membership sales, operational efficiencies and all but eliminate fraud, according to the release.

WashX’s advanced data analytics also provide visibility into other key operational metrics wash operators never had access to before, such as unique customer revisits, curb-to-curb duration, revenue per labor hour and profit center usage, the release noted.

“EverWash is an ideal partner for us because of the credibility and robust relationships they have with hundreds of carwash operators,” said Anoop Kanthan, chief technology officer and co-founder of omniX Labs. “From providing intelligent sets of eyes to unmanned carwashes to helping optimize staffing for full-service locations, WashX will change the way carwashes operate through technology.”

WashX is now available for carwashes in the U.S., the release concluded.
