Laundrapp’s digital platform shaking up the world’s existing multi-billion pound laundry industry

08/02/2017 – Laundrapp, the British startup revolutionising the laundry and dry cleaning industry with smart on-demand door-to- door technology, today announces its launch into its first international markets with 15 countries across the world to launch over the next 2 years.

February will see deals signed and digital services launched in Australia and New Zealand alongside numerous countries including Mexico, Turkey, Germany, China, France, Norway, Ireland, Sweden, Iran, US, UAE, India, Malaysia and more launching through 2018 and beyond.

Named ‘App of the Year’ in 2016, Laundrapp is one of the big success stories of the UK digital industry. Its revolutionary “Powered by Laundrapp” platform has streamlined the delivery process, using smart vehicle tracking, geo-based real-time logistics and mobile first technology which offers the user a fast, efficient and easier option than doing their laundry at home. By licensing its powerful platform under ‘white label’ to entrepreneurs and existing laundry companies across the world, Laundrapp is rapidly transforming the entire global laundry industry with its smart on-demand technology.

How it works:

– Laundrapp App – a smart and simple app that helps the customer select what they would

like washing, place their order, and track its progress.

– Laundrapp Drive – Laundrapp’s driver app technology which optimises route efficiency, and driver tracking to reduce operational costs and increase productivity. In addition, allows customers to track drivers in real-time directly within the Laundrapp App.

– Laundrapp Pulse – The technological heartbeat of the platform, Pulse coordinates order fulfilment, supplier management, app updates, billing and more.

CEO, Edward Relf comments:

“Laundrapp is a technology driven startup that has grown in the UK at a rate we didn’t think possible. Fundamentally, this has been driven by smart convenient technology, great service and scalability of the Laundrapp Platform. The laundry and dry cleaning industry is a global multi-billion pound industry ripe for a digital revolution and I’m pleased to say Laundrapp is now ready to disrupt it!

Edward continues: “The success in the UK carved an obvious path to global expansion and licensing our technology has proved the best way for us to reach a global audience. I am thrilled to see how receptive global partners have been to our technology, the industry understands it must innovate to grow and Laundrapp is the perfect technology to reach this new digital-savvy millennial market.
