In lockstep with Washify’s “Why” we are excited to announce another resource for car wash owners to find valuable and useful information to help them improve or start their business.
This time, we are excited to announce “Washify Mentorship Program”, designed exclusively for the car wash industry.
Sometimes taking a step back is necessary to understand the why’s and see the big picture. Washify has taken this step and has realized that we have and want to give back to our customers, fellow car wash owners, friends and everyone involved and that want to be involved in this ever-developing and fun industry.
“The purpose of this platform is to offer everyone in the industry and outside of it, a Knowledge Platform, one where each user, whether a mentor or mentee, can acquire new knowledge, expand what they already know, get first-hand information from experienced car wash owners, as well as sharing ideas, among many other topics a mentor and mentee can have in common”. – Matt D’Souza, VP of Sales, Washify.
Are you looking to build a new car wash site? Do you want to purchase a car wash, but have no idea where to start? Need some advice on how to advertise your wash? Want to talk with a fellow car wash owner? – This is the place where your questions will be answered!
Washify was created to help car wash owners and has set a goal to give back to the industry and help in any way possible. But also, Washify has set it’s minds to help those in need, which is why this mentorship program will have a completely voluntary and optional charge. All proceeds will go directly to a charity house in both Boston and Honduras. TBD

SwiftPay leverages license plate recognition and digital marketing to create a consistent and convenient customer experience in unattended environments.

With a clear and intuitive touchscreen interface, and robust weatherproof casing, the 6500 delivers a simple, quick, and delightful payment experience for customers.
“AMP’s collaborative approach to payment solutions made them the perfect partner while developing SwiftPay. This partnership provides the latest technology in hardware, software, and EMV payments in unattended environments such as IBA car washes,” said Eric George, SwiftPay Product Manager.
“SwiftPay makes it possible for in-bay operators to leverage the same features as the tunnel market, including a modern unlimited program as well as marketing and loyalty programs to increase and maximize monthly revenue,” said Odane Jackson, SwiftPay Product Manager.
“This collaboration with Washify is an ideal fit with our vision for Smart EMV unattended,” said Robert Downton, VP of Sales North America at AMP. “They are partners with a deep understanding of both their customers’ expectations, and how to leverage the potential of our technology to deliver a smooth and delightful payment experience for every car wash customer.”
SwiftPay is available in three formats, offered as a standalone kiosk and as a retrofit kit for Wash Select II or Goldline units. The retrofit kit provides car wash owners with the opportunity to upgrade their kiosk and modernize operations:
– Replace existing hardware with a simple door replacement and minimal electrical work
– Offer an unlimited program to create a recurring revenue stream
– Implement easy-to-use marketing and loyalty programs
– Provide car wash customers with responsive remote support

WASHIFY MAKES THE 2020 INC. 5000 LIST OF AMERICA’S FASTEST GROWING PRIVATE COMPANIES
Washify debuts at #1924 on the list with 219% growth
Boston, Massachusetts – August 12, 2020 – For the first time, Washify Services LLC is recognized on the annual Inc. 5000 list of the fastest growing companies in America – the only company on this year’s list dedicated to offering services to the car wash industry in the United States.
Washify is a Boston-based company serving the car wash industry with a unique blend of hardware and cloud based software. The founder is also the owner of Waves Car Wash in Boston and a second generation software entrepreneur.
“We are very proud of the growth that Washify has had since its inception. Every day we feel more committed to our clients and to the industry. Having achieved the growth required to be on this prestigious list fills us with pride and validates our innovator status,” said Adam Korngold, CEO of Washify Services.
Washify started out as a simple cloud based software to manage unlimited membership programs for car washes. Soon after gaining a few customers, the request for a full POS system soon came in. After several years of building the software, the Washify car wash point-of-sale platform was introduced to the car wash market and is currently experiencing record growth.
Our point-of-sale platform and flexible car wash pay stations have become increasingly relevant to public health and the reopening of car washes because it empowers our clients to run contactless transactions using license plate recognition. This allows for a completely “windows up” car wash experience, since the car wash is billed to the credit card associated with the car’s license plate. Washify is experiencing accelerated growth in response to demand for its automated solutions. The low contact customer experience provided by Washify’s platform helps put consumers at ease while driving more revenue for car wash owners.
In the past 3 years, with an average growth rate of 73% year over year, Washify has grown in both revenue and skilled personnel. We have expanded our team and it has all been due to the increased demand from our clients, who confirm the need and value of our hardware and software, and who have contributed by spreading the word and acting as ambassadors for our brand.

Washify Unveils Breakthrough POS Technologies To Drive Car Wash Revenues
Nashville, May 1, 2019 – Washify is unveiling a new line of products and enhancements under the Washify X brand. This new product line encompasses hardware and software innovations designed to help car wash owners drive more revenue and enhance their customers’ experience.
Some of the new Washify X products being introduced are:
• X Target Recognition Marketing– A groundbreaking marketing enhancement that enables car wash owners to customize the kiosk screen presentation based on facial recognition, license plate recognition and transaction history associated with that vehicle and driver. Based on this and machine learning, car wash owners can show their customers screens that will resonate with them and convert and upsell them at higher rates than a one-size-fits-all screen flow.
• Car Wash Owner App – The brand new owner app enables the owner to monitor their wash, communicate remotely with customers at their kiosks, submit trouble tickets (with video, text, pictures), set alerts based on preset factors (drawer is short by $5 or car has been on loop for over 3 minutes) and change profiles on their kiosks. This all-encompassing tool also enables staff management so you can communicate and allocate team member time efficiently.
• X Station Kiosk– Washify’s newest kiosk line for tunnels and in-bays incorporates the latest technology at price points that will turn owners’ heads. It is equipped to leverage facial recognition, license plate recognition and seamless integration with the Washify consumer app. And because it runs Washify’s cloud software, it’s always running on the latest version.
• PlateID Recognition – The PlateID program doesn’t just read license plates with speed and accuracy, it also sets the sales person up to effectively upsell by displaying previous transaction history on the POS in real time. Other benefits of PlateID include triggering the display of unused wash books on the kiosk screen automatically and allowing for car wash sites to operate without gates by taking the hassle out of stacking.
“Last year we regrouped after the ICA and created a road map of what we want to provide car wash owners at the ICA in 2019. It took a lot of work but based on the early feedback, we’ve exceeded even our high expectations,” said Adam Korngold, Founder and CEO of Washify. “When you redesign your core products from the ground up to offer a dramatically better platform, it can be a tricky endeavor but, with Washify X, my team has built a system that is unmatched in terms of giving car wash owners flexibility and enabling great customer experiences.”
Washify will be displaying its solutions at the Car Wash Show May 13-15th in Nashville at booth 651.
