Managing Assets with Maytag Connect 360°™
Maytag Commercial Laundry®, founded in 1958, is responsible for revolutionizing the commercial laundry market with a number of commercial laundry innovations. These include plastic-ticket activated machines, and a high-efficiency, horizontal-axis commercial washer that used significantly less energy than the traditional top-load model. The newest addition to Maytag’s long list of innovative products is the Maytag Connect 360° system. The Maytag Connect 360 use Prodea’s Arrayent IoT Services Platform to create a web-based laundry room communication and management system designed to boost equipment owner profits.
The Maytag Connect 360° system is an ideal equipment solution for multi-unit housing complexes and in university housing. It gives property owners and managers a dashboard for machine usage, problems, and maintenance-related issues, and enables remote diagnosis and end-user alerts. Its ability to remotely diagnose machine issues reduces service costs (which can be more than $100 per call and require multiple visits) and increases availability for users.
The Maytag Connect 360 benefits, enabled by Prodea, include the ability for machine owners to:
- Retrieve information on money collection and analyze usage patterns;
- Remotely set up and modify vending prices to maximize profits;
- Review cycle data and predict maintenance needs; and
- Receive service code notifications that can be forwarded immediately to a service technician, saving one of the two trips typically required.
