Laundry Dashboard customers help devise new functionalities

At WSP we are keen to listen to our customers. It was with good reason that we named our jubilee event #Up2U; in other words, it's up to you! This is certainly true where the development of our software is concerned, technology like Laundry Dashboard. We have valuable conversations with our customers on a regular basis, discussing their wishes and how these might translate into new functionality in Laundry Dashboard. Before we make any changes, however, we need to know whether other customers share these wishes. In 2019 we are earmarking 1850 hours of development time for new Laundry Dashboard functionalities, so naturally we want to devote these hours to functionalities that offer our customers added value. To help ensure this, we decided to survey our Laundry Dashboard customers. Read more

Building and optimising laundry facilities specialising in workshop towels

In recent months WSP has embarked on an extensive project at a big laundry in Switzerland. Like others, this customer is drawing on WSP's unique specialist knowledge related to laundries specialising in workshop towels.

These solutions aim to automate and integrate as many of the above tasks as possible, thus making the processing of laundry simpler, safer and cheaper. Read more
