Star Micronics And Sudzy Team Up To Provide Turnkey iPad POS To Dry Cleaners

Laundromats and dry cleaners benefit from iPad-based POS solution with integrated printer, cash drawer and stand, streamlining laundry drop-off and pickup while improving communication with customers

Star Micronics, the global industry leader in point-of-sale printer solutions, has teamed up with Sudzy, a leading-edge developer of POS software for the dry cleaning industry, to provide an all-in-one cloud-based iPad POS solution, featuring Star Micronics mPOP, which is certified with the Sudzy software.

Sudzy POS provides many industry-specific features that allow dry cleaners to streamline processes and improve communication with their customers. Sudzy POS makes it easy to create and change orders with modifiers and detailed instructions for each individual garment, print garment tags, track orders, process payments with cash and credit cards, and alert customers when orders are ready for pickup —all activities, including sales volume, can be tracked in real time. A mobile app enables customers to place one-click orders directly from their phones and the drivers’ pickup and delivery routes are optimized. The fully integrated customer engagement platform helps increase sales with automated emails and coupons.

The Star mPOP combines a small cash drawer and two-inch receipt printer in a sleek, space-saving design that is ideal for tight workspaces and low-cash businesses such as dry cleaners. The mPOP communicates via Bluetooth, and additional USB ports are neatly positioned in the back, offering quick and easy access for bar code scanners, tag printers and other peripherals. Paired with an iPad secured in a stand, the mPOP turns into a turnkey POS system that is easy to use and install.

In addition, Star offers the heat- and humidity-resistant SP700 impact printer for tag printing, and drivers picking up laundry use the SM-S220i mobile printer to print laundry bag tags.

“We discovered that most dry cleaners still use out-of-date POS software and hardware, many from the ’90s, creating a barrier between them and the customers,” said Roy Ganor, co-founder and CEO at Sudzy. “Star’s mPOP offers a robust and modern design combined with easy integration with our POS software and is ideal for use by dry cleaners.”

“Star is proud to partner with Sudzy to offer a cutting-edge POS solution that enables dry cleaners to better serve their customers and grow their business,” says Christophe Naasz, director of business development, at Star Micronics. “Sudzy POS for iPad paired with mPOP is a cost effective solution for dry cleaners looking to upgrade to the next-generation POS.”

The Sudzy and Star Micronics all-in-one POS solution is available from Sudzy and includes an iPad with Sudzy POS software, tablet stand, credit card reader, and Star mPOP with receipt printer and cash drawer, optional bar code reader, and tag printer. Customers pay a small fee for the hardware upfront and get the basic software with unlimited updates for free. Premium features are available at a low monthly fee.
