Dry Cleaning Services overview

Dry cleaning is a service style of business instead of a more traditional sales style. Garments are brought into the premises where they are repaired and/or cleaned. Customers then return to collect their garments after a set amount of time.

Keeping track of what garments belong to which customer is very important. Idealpos' strong customer accounts function helps ease the pain as each sale is linked to the customer.

Additional features that are unique to the dry cleaning business is the printing of garment tags for each item to ensure all garments are able to be tracked throughout the process to be returned to the customer together.

Customer Accounts

Customer Accounts

Customer accounts are very important to dry cleaning businesses as they rely on linking the customers to the garments. Of course this can be done with a simple ticket number, but if you can have the customer's name instead, and track their spending, then you can target your services better to those who need it.

Customer accounts also allow you to get in touch easily with your customer if an issue arises with a repair or the cleaning required. At other times you might have to send a reminder to a customer to collect their items.

The most important thing customer accounts can do for your business is keep a record of all transactions with that customer, allowing you to view service history and offer discounts to your most loyal. It's easier to keep a customer then get a new one!

Pickup Date Function

Customers like to know when they are able to pickup their goods. By default we set the pickup to 3 days, but this can be changed when selected, as some might be required in 24 hours. The date will print out on the customer receipt and all the document tags for each item needing to be cleaned.

Stock Garment Tags

Each garment that is given to the cleaners needs to be returned. When items are added to the sale, they are already pre-programmed with the number of tags that will print for them.

A three piece suit will print three tags for each item, whereas a pair of slacks or a dress will only print one each. The receipt will show the total number of garments in the order which can all be verified when the customer comes to pick them up.

Barcode & Label Printing

Regular customers can benefit by using a customer card which is locked to their account. Cards can have a barcode printed on them which can be scanned and they will instantly be added to the sale.

You can also include barcodes on receipts and coupons to offer your customers special deals on return visits.
