PayRange, the leading network for everyday purchases, has been selected by Fowler Laundry Solutions to upgrade its machines with touchless payment via the PayRange app. As the nation’s largest distributor and operator of LG commercial laundry machines in the New York area, and the nation’s largest distributor of Girbau commercial laundry equipment, Fowler provides laundry solutions to thousands of multi-family housing properties in the north east.
Like many businesses across the globe, Fowler is mobilising to adapt to the new realities of doing business during a pandemic and beyond. A top request from property managers has been to offer residents payment options that do not include touching kiosks, cards, or coins in the interest of reducing exposure or transmission of Covid-19. After piloting with PayRange, Fowler has committed to upgrading every compatible machine as soon as practical.
“It’s not business as usual at Fowler,” said Daniel Fowler, director of strategic planning at Fowler Laundry Solutions. “Being in the epicentre of the US pandemic, we are responding quickly to alleviate consumer concerns. We recognise that our community laundry rooms pose a risk to our customers and we are doing everything we can to promote a safe laundry experience.” In addition to providing touchless payment, the PayRange solution reduces the need for consumers to make trips to buy quarters, and for service personnel to visit the properties to perform on-site collections.
