CBORD and Washlava Revolutionize the Student Laundry Experience

CBORD partners with Washlava to provide a modern laundry experience and more convenience for students in on-campus housing.

April 18, 2018—CBORD®, a leading provider of technology solutions for colleges and universities that improve the student experience, and Washlava, the technology company modernizing self-service laundry through its mobile application, announce their partnership and the integration of Washlava with CBORD’s campus card systems.

A commitment to innovation makes the CBORD and Washlava partnership a natural fit. CBORD helps colleges and universities deliver a better on-campus housing experience, while Washlava saves users time, making laundry day more convenient and fun.

Washlava seamlessly integrates with CBORD’s student card systems and mobile applications, allowing students to reserve machines and pay for laundry right from their smartphones. Notifications in Washlava’s native iOS and Android apps alert students when cycles are complete, reducing the traditional hassles of shared laundry facilities. Universities benefit through an upgraded campus laundry amenity, additional revenue opportunities, and access to the Washlava DRIVE portal which provides visibility into real-time revenue data and machine statuses, and enables instant and automated price changes.

“We are passionate about using technology to help our customers improve the student experience,” comments Jeff Wood, CBORD’s vice president of marketing and product. “This partnership is a perfect example of developing an innovative solution to solve a common and long-standing headache on college campuses.”

Another unprecedented feature is live, 24/7 multi-channel support (phone, email, and text) for students and staff provided by Washlava’s Washsquad. The Washsquad support team monitors system statuses and can reset machines remotely. Automatic and seamless refunds can be made directly to the student if any problems are encountered.

“CBORD and Washlava are both intensely focused on providing seamless everyday experiences to their users, making a partnership a natural choice,” explains Todd Belveal, Washlava founder and CEO. “Student laundry has been an inconvenient chore for far too long and is overdue for an upgrade. We are here to fix that.”
