Smart laundry controlled by smartphones

Smart laundry controlled by smartphones in Chiba, Japan

The cleaning equipment producer Yamamoto Manufacturing together with operator of laundry Wash-plus have recently developed a smart laundry controlled by smartphones. The new “Smart Laundry is located in Chiba, Japan, and is offering to its customers various automated services throughout the laundry process (scheduling, notifications, payments etc.).

Japan is a pioneer in “Smart Laundry” technology that allows users to find through their phones if there are empty machines available in specific stores, notifies them automatically on the progress of their laundry and of course offers digital payment options.

The “Smart Laundry” technology is expected to expand to the rest of the country in the following months. The two companies plan to have soon over a hundred laundries of this kind in Japan.
