washMaster benefits 

For tenants 

For property managers 

For property owners 

washMaster packages 

Keeping control with one click – washMaster makes it possible. You get a detailed overview of all the appliances at all times, while your tenants enjoy more flexibility when washing. Your tenants simply book their preferred washing time online or via the app. This means that the user remains flexible and can also wash spontaneously. A benefit that your tenants will particularly appreciate.

The tenant also receives a notification as soon as his/her laundry is ready. This means there is better time keeping and disputes in the laundry room are avoided. Your tenants are more satisfied and remain loyal to your property for longer. This minimises your effort in organising the laundry room: You get an overview of the utilisation of the machines and the washing behaviour of your tenants at any time. This way you can check whether your laundry room is equipped as required.

Traditional payment systems 

Operating costs for laundry care in communal laundry rooms are apportioned in accordance with the user-pays principle – securely, fairly and straightforwardly. Schulthess offers the right payment system for every need and makes laundry room billing transparent. Cash or with card? You can choose from two systems

The integrated PrePaid Card system

The Schulthess PrePaid Card can be loaded by the janitor conveniently with special PC software on the computer or directly at the machine. Its use is contactless and wireless using an RFID chip, which enables reliable data transmission without wear and tear (e.g. of the magnetic strip). The new PrePaid Card system – which can be integrated into all topLine models on request – offers absolute cost transparency at all times: The costs for washing or drying programmes are shown on the display and debited directly from the card. 

PrePaid Card system: Single or twin

The PrePaid Card payment system can either be integrated into a topLine model or retrofitted as a wall-mounted card reader for existing appliances. If you wish to connect two machines, e.g. a washing machine and a dryer, the twin card reader is recommended (can also be combined with a room air dryer). At the same appliance, the janitor can top up the card and programme the consumption tariff individually.

Coin system

Easy to use and reliable in operation, the Schulthess coin-operated machine is still the classic among the payment systems. Tenants can operate the appliances, each of which is connected to a washing machine or dryer, with 10-centime to 5-franc pieces. A display shows the remaining washing und drying time. Of interest to the janitor: The coin-operated machines are easy to programme and the cash boxes are easy to empty. The appliance automatically ejects faulty or defective coins.
