Chicagoland Car Wash Issues Seven Millionth FastPass Tag from DRB Systems

DRB Systems has announced that it has issued its seven millionth FastPass tag to a Chicagoland Wash U car-wash guest, Dick Portillo. Wash-U is a new car-wash system that features environmentally responsible sustainable technology that uses a fraction of the water and power of a traditional car wash. Two locations are currently open in Plainfield and Villa Park, Ill. The FastPass program is designed to provide car-wash service to monthly pass customers via RFID and the SiteWatch Xpress Pay Terminal.

DRB Systems is a business solutions company that provides technology and marketing support to enhance the consumer experience and the operational efficiency of a car wash. FastPass is a wireless acceptance system that allows a car wash to identify individual vehicles for any type of loyalty program. Wash U offers the monthly passes as a value to guests, which can be used at any time with the service selected by a user.

"Wash U Car Wash is proud to be on the cutting edge of environmental sustainability in the industry, utilizing less fresh water, superior reclamation and significantly reduced energy amounts while providing an awesome clean for our customers," said Michael Timmer, the car wash's head of wash operations, in a prepared statement.

"With Wash U's dual belt technology, our clean and bright facilities can handle a wider variety of vehicles, including dually pickup trucks, in a stress-free loading environment which vastly improves the customer car wash experience," Timmer said in the prepared statement. "Wash U Carwash is thrilled to be partnered with DRB Systems in the use of technology to improve efficiencies and the overall value proposition for today's time challenged consumer."
