Studies have shown that the majority of working adults report greater happiness when spending money on time-saving services rather than material things. For most of us, there is nothing more valuable than quality time. So as more people are outsourcing time-consuming yet necessary and routine tasks, the dry cleaning and laundry industry remains essential to every household.
In an increasingly digitized world, the use of smart phones and mobile apps allows consumers to access every modern convenience at their fingertips, at a moment’s notice. The laundry industry must adapt its capabilities and modernize its approach to meet consumers’ needs while staying on the cutting edge of innovation.
As the on-demand economy becomes larger, online services are opening the doors of opportunity within the laundry industry. Companies are stepping up their efforts to develop feature-rich laundry mobile apps. Apps help showcase services, reach customers in different sections of the community, eliminate location barriers, and provide customers an easy user interface to access services. Integration of in-app features such as real-time tracking, viewing service order status, and easy payment options help make these services more convenient to use.
Tide Cleaners has always been at the forefront of dry cleaning technology, and the brand now makes laundry services more convenient than ever, with pickup and delivery services, order tracking, access to faster checkout, and exclusive app-only offers via their smartphone app, and easy locker drop-off services in metro-area apartment complexes, college campuses, and retail locations.
