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.”
