SLS Connect featured on The Telegraph

We’ve been featured in the national press! Last week, The Telegraph published a new article exploring the Internet of Things (IoT) and how, through our collaboration with Vodafone and Onecom, we’re bringing unrivalled connectivity to the commercial laundry industry with SLS Connect.

Speaking with our director, Peter Hosking, the article features a video which shares a behind the scenes insight into how the technology works and the benefits it provides to both us and our clients.

You can check out the video below:

IoT is the future of laundry, but don’t just take our word for it! We’ll be exhibiting at the Dementia Care and Nursing Home Exhibition later this month, where you can be introduced to some of the team and, most importantly, SLS Connect.

To catch SLS Connect in action, visit us on Stand D462 on 26/27 March 2019, NEC Birmingham.

Perfecting service doesn’t have to be complicated.

Service support has always been reactive, requiring an insight that is never available. We arrive blind to what has happened with any machine that is faulty. SLS Connect turns this on its head.

Having foresight of what might be wrong and the reasons why before we visit means we can arrive prepared. This simplifies everything; when a customer calls we will be able to communicate directly about their problem from a position of knowledge, reducing the interaction to a simple quality discussion as opposed to a distracting Q&A leading to confusion on all parties behalf.

We have listened and accepted what is wrong and SLS Connect is our answer. Simple by design.

The IOT meets commercial laundry equipment.

IOT – the Internet of Things. A network of physical devices embedded with electronics, software, sensors and measuring equipment, reporting directly to a cloud infrastructure.

SLS Connect is the introduction of IOT principles, designed to improve and maximise information in support of perfect customer service. There are plenty of products coming to market that incorporate the benefits of IOT and we are extremely proud to bring the benefits to the commercial laundry market.

SLS Connect, simply laundry.

SLS Connect. Designed to reduce downtime.

How long on average does it take to repair a laundry machine? How about the average hours you’ve lost communicating a problem to your service partner? Imagine a machine that reports directly to your service partner whenever there’s an issue.

We are passionate about change and improving our customers’ experience, taking the bold step to introduce a new solution to the market is our way of challenging the norm. We want service to become transparent, we want our standards to be easily measurable and visible, and for our customers to have the best possible experience without even recognising it is happening.

Let’s revolutionise your in-house laundry.

SLS Connect will provide information for every invested party; managers can view reports at the click of a button, owners can see activity from anywhere in the world and operatives can truly interact with simple controls.

We believe there is no point simply capturing fantastic operational information, sharing statistics and reporting accurately upon performance gives the power directly to our customer.

If you operate multiple sites you will have the ability to see how each laundry operates and where efficienies can be obtained. The information we will capture will allow us to propose better more efficient laundries for the future within your business. There is already a plan in place to use the data we are capturing to predict failure, achievable by only understanding how and why failure happens in the real world. Maybe in the future we can predict and resolve a fault before it even happens!
