What is Easy Card™?

The Easy Card™ payment system was developed for laundry owners and customers to eliminate the day-to-day problems related to starting machines with coins. Customers love the convenience of Easy Card™. Laundry customers start machines by swiping a reusable card, instead of inserting quarters. This provides a faster, cleaner, and simplified experience for the laundry customer.

Easy Card™ Product Details
 

For the owner, Easy Card™ takes store management to the highest level. There are no quarters to deal with in an Easy Card™ store, saving laundry owners hours of collecting, sorting, and transporting heavy money. By simply unlocking the cabinet, grabbing a stack of bills, and printing a receipt, laundry owners can collect money in minutes versus hours.

Gaining access to the Easy Card™ system remotely provides a powerful management tool. By using the supplied software, owners can dial-in to a store to monitor sales, collections, and system status. Easy Card™ also allows for real time adjustments to accounts and vend prices. Be more profitable by quickly modifying prices to accommodate fluctuating utility costs. Having the ability to modify pricing in penny increments gives owners flexibility and options that their competition doesn't have. Also, promoting your business with creative marketing tools like time-of-day pricing and usage bonuses can increase your customer base. Easy Card™ offers a win-win solution for you and your customers.

How Easy Card™ Works :

 

Step 1 - Creating A New Account: Instead of your customers turning bills into quarters, they receive a reusable Easy Card™ from any cabinet. The system server creates an account from the number encoded on the issued card. The magnetic stripe on an Easy Card™ simply holds the account number. The main system server stores balance and activity by account.

No account balance is ever stored on an Easy Card™

Step 2 - To Start A Vending Cycle: Customers insert their card into the machine's Easy Card™ reader. The account number is read and balance information is accessed at the system server. The vend price is deducted from the account balance, the activity is logged, and a signal is sent to start the cycle.

Step 3 - Recharge An Account: When a start is attempted without a sufficient account balance a "low funds" message will be displayed. Customers can add more funds to their account at any cabinet by inserting their Easy Card™ and adding money.

Wondering How Easy Card™ Can Help Make You More Money ?

Increasing Vend Price:

Easy Card™ provides store owners with the ability to increase vend prices by a few cents rather than quarters which is more easily received by customers. Small, incremental price increases can not only pay for your Easy Card™ system, but also build your bottom line. Quickly adjust to changes in utility costs or react to marketing by competitors and never manually change coin slides or program coin drops again.

Float:

When an Easy Card™ customer deposits money on their card, not all of it gets used during their visit. This left over balance is called “Float”. Easy Card™ owners are paid in advance for their services which allow them to generate interest from the unused balances. Unused account balances fall straight to your bottom line. This float also assures that Easy Card™ customers always return to your store.

Customer Retention:

Easy Card™ helps you retain the new customers that you are marketing to. Customers like the convenience of using an Easy Card™. Larger capacity machines are easier to start and Easy Card™ eliminates all coin related troubles like jamming, mis-counting, and mailing refunds. Once your customers use Easy Card™ they won’t want to go back to coins!

Marketing possibilities are endless with Easy Card™. Optional time-of-day or day-of-week pricing and customer loyalty bonuses can be implemented to attract more business.
