CROSSLINK QUICK LINKS
CUSTOMER & OPERATOR APPEAL
Simple to install and operate, CrossLink brings more payment options to residents – allowing coins and credit/debit cards. In doing so, CrossLink helps laundries retain residents who might be resistant to give up the quarters. Simultaneously, laundry operators reduce coin usage and the hassles associated with coin collection. Using an internet enabled device (smartphone, computer, etc...), operators can remotely monitor their laundries, run reports, and track income through MyLaundryLink.
HOW IT WORKS
When a credit or debit card is swiped, the CrossLink CardSlide reads the information and sends the data to a router mounted out of site in the laundry. The router sends the data to a local modem, which is connected to a high-speed Internet line or Aircard. The modem sends the information to the payment processor where the credit/debit cards are approved or denied. If the customer’s credit card is approved, a small green light on the external card swipe will illuminate. The CardSlide display counts down the proper vend price and a pulse is sent to start the machine. This whole process takes just a second or two to complete. In the event the credit card is denied, that message will be returned and a small red light on the card swipe will illuminate.
MYLAUNDRYLINK – THE SUPERIOR MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE BY ESD
Using an Internet-enabled device, operators can log into MyLaundryLink and get real-time information about their laundries. You can track credit card and debit card income, change pricing programs, and track loyalty card income on all washers and dryers with an ESD CardSlide. All this information can be displayed by viewing the built-in reports. The software also tracks VTM™ activity. MyLaundryLink, which is maintained by ESD via a secure website, is accessible by entering your unique username and password.
CrossLink Readers are located so they do not interfere machine coin acceptance. An external swipe mounts on the front of the machine for customer access, and the more sophisticated electronic components of the reader are installed inside the machine for greater security. The reader has a wireless antenna to connect with a router mounted out of site in the location. On some brands of washers, the CrossLink readers is a Ruby style reader that mounts in a separate case installed on the top of the machine. This reader includes a display that illuminates vend price.
ESD CrossLink CardSlide Readers are easily set up using a set of Management Cards. While the network connections for the system are pre-configured on the equipment before it is shipped, the Management Cards allow operators to control and test this connection. The cards also allow technicians to test machines upon installation.
