  1. Name

    This name will appear in the list of locations a user's loyalty account is linked to. The location name should be recognizable for customers and allow easy recognition for users for which location they are using. 

    Examples and Recommendations:

    1. A laundromat may use the same name as the displayed on the business's signage. If the business has multiple locations, add a city name, or street name for further identification.

      1. Smart Wash

      2. Smart Wash - Niles

      3. Smart Wash - Golf Rd

    2. An apartment complex may use the name of the complex and, if applicable, the building name/number and floor.

      1. Oak Park Apartments - B1 / F2

      2. Oak Park Apartments - Main Office

  2. Address

    The address is displayed below the name, along with the location on a local map.

  3. Phone
    The phone number entered here should be a business contact number for customer usage. When a phone number is entered into this field a phone icon will be displayed in the Loyalty app that will pull up the default phone program/app on the device and enter the phone number for the user.

  1. Name

    The name of the equipment should be descriptive to the customer to what the machine is (eg. 20lb washer, 20lb Dexter washer, 30lb dryer.).

    To enable users the ability to receive emails when the cycle on the machines are nearing completion, this option needs to be enabled.
