WeWash: How did you get to know WeWash and why did you choose them as your partner?
“Since the conception phase of City Pop, we were looking for a partner to manage the laundry rooms in a smart way. We met WeWash at the exhibition So!Apart in 2018 and it was love at first sight.”
What was the main goal of the collaboration of WeWash and City Pop?
“We wanted to remove the outdated coin mechanisms and give extra comfort to our tenants.”
Why did you choose a smart system for the laundry? In what way did WeWash present a better solution for your needs?
“WeWash facilities enhance the tenants’ experience by checking real-time availability directly on their phone, paying with their registered credit card and being notified whenever the laundry is done. On the company side, we can measure and track the machine usage in each building, directly by checking our City Pop Property Management System.”
How much time and input did the City Pop team put into the collaboration?
“Approximately 8 days of analysing and prototyping, and 20 days of development and quality assurance. The City Pop and WeWash teams worked very close together and the collaboration has been smooth, enjoyable, and successful. The final result is impressive: the integration has been stable from day 1 and we had satisfied tenants since the beginning of the service.”
Next steps: How do you plan to develop PopWash in the future?
“Mmh, is there anything else that we could implement? I’m in.”
