Unveiled in March this year at the Appliance & Electronics World Expo 2018 (AWE), Haier’s IoT Laundry Platform is industry’s first, as well as the largest IOT laundry platform in the world.
Controlled completely through the “Haier Wash App”, users can reserve, schedule, monitor and pay for the services from their phones. This provides an end-to-end digitally managed washing experience. Each washing machine is connected to the cloud and can be individually managed from the app.
The Haier Wash App will assist the user throughout the washing process. It will remind them to take their clothes out once the washing is over and will maintain a complete record of their laundry usage in the past. With such convenience, users can easily multitask and finish other chores simultaneously while their clothes are being washed.
To ensure a highly hygienic washing process, the commercial washing machines being used at the Haier Smart Laundry Service feature a specially developed double sterilizing function. Ozone sterilization and high-temperature sterilization are extremely helpful in avoiding cross pollution and bacteria transmission, thus making the laundry process healthier.
Haier is also planning to promote the Community Laundry in more Indian universities in near future and provide the students with high-efficient and convenient washing experience. This is also an important step Haier took in developing overseas markets and accelerating the building of community laundry platform worldwide.
Eric Braganza, President, Haier Appliances India commented on the inauguration, “This is a moment of great pride for us to achieve the milestone of setting up India’s first IoT enabled Smart Laundry service. As we progress further on Haier’s vision to become a global leader in the era of the Internet of Things through its Eco-brand strategy, our focus to create smart solutions for the connected consumer is strengthening. This initiative is a step towards providing high tech, hassle-free laundry solution to today’s millennials who are fast adopters in this hyper connected age.”
At present, the shared laundry business of Haier has expanded into universities, hotels, apartments and other fields. In China, it has been introduced to 32% of the self-service laundry rooms, providing service to over 10 million users. In the shared laundry field based on smart IOT, the share of Haier Washing Machine exceeds more than 60%, which makes it in the absolutely leading position of the industry.
