EL SEGUNDO, Calif., Feb. 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- WASH Multifamily Laundry Systems, a leading laundry facilities management service for multi-housing locations, has been at the forefront of laundry room technology for decades.  Continuing its spirit of innovation, the company recently opened the WASH Technology Center in Rancho Dominguez, Calif.  The new facility will serve as a think tank for WASH's Information Technology (IT) team, giving them a space to foster creativity outside of the corporate office.

"Our new Tech Center is an enriched environment where innovation will be the primary focal point," says John Buccola, WASH's chief information officer (CIO).  "We are only one mile from our production facility and 10 miles from corporate headquarters, which gives us proximity to these locations for collaboration with other teams and departments."

From the design of the space with open work areas and stations for team collaboration, to the casual dress code and the large Microsoft Perspective Pixel Display that greets you in the lobby, the Tech Center is modeled more like a budding technology company than a 67-year-old laundry provider.  "You can really feel the buzz of creative energy when you walk through the doors. It's invigorating," Buccola says.

The opening of the WASH Tech Center brings to focus the creative and development process that has been the driving force behind this multifamily laundry industry pioneer. In addition, the Tech Center will be a place to showcase WASH technology to its customers and investors. The Customer Experience Center in the lobby features interactive displays of coinless card systems, mobile apps, and dispatch and routing technologies.

"This is a new age for our industry. Our business transcends far beyond the actual laundry room; we are truly transforming the customer experience through our new innovations and technology," adds Buccola.
