Consumers Soon Can Use Softcard to do Laundry (Oct. 1, 2014)
Softcard has extended its reach to the self-serve laundry business. The NFC-based mobile payment initiative backed by AT&T Mobility, Verizon Wireless and T-Mobile is part of a mobile payments offers-and-loyalty program with USA Technologies, a provider of wireless, cashless payment technology for the self-serve retailing industry. Consumers using Setomatic Systems’ new SpyderWash Elite laundry machines enabled with NFC and SmartTap mobile commerce technology will receive a 25 percent discount on purchases made with the Softcard app. By year-end 2015, Setomatic estimates more than 25,000 SpyderWash Elite laundry machines will support NFC mobile payments. The program is the first nationwide mobile payments, offers and loyalty program targeted at the $8 billion unattended commercial laundry market, according to the announcement.
