YachtCloud, a company providing technology and media-hosting for the superyacht and yachting industries, today announced the launch of its new laundry system LaundryBoard. LaundryBoard allows crew to manage, log and track every item of yacht and guest laundry via a programme specifically developed for the yachting industry. It records and alerts crew to garment care requirements as well as providing dry cleaning status tracking and automated notifications related to overdue items, hopefully meaning one less thing to think about for busy superyacht crew this summer.
LaundryBoard differentiates itself from app-based laundry programmes by running off a secure onboard server with a local network and a dedicated iPad. It does not require an internet connection or data usage, data entered does not leave the vessel and updates and amendments within the product are instant. It can also be adapted to suit different laundry requirements per trip, guest, garment, cabin and user.
Authorised crew access this information by logging in via the onboard iPad, allowing them to see all current and previous laundry records and information. All items can be photographed for easier identification and to show any damage and stains. Further details can also be logged such as details on fabric handling. The need for product tagging is therefore eliminated, resulting in reduced risk of damage or permanent flaws to clothing/linen. Notes can also be added to each item to assist with sharing information and recording any special care or client requests.
YachtCloud says that the product has been developed together with yacht interior crew to create a truly fit-for-purpose solution. Andre Klepper, YachtCloud Founder said: “LaundryBoard stems from a direct request from crew. We were tasked with developing a product that would help manage the associated handling and time-consuming issues related to onboard laundry especially during busy charter and owner periods. The product has been fine tuned to really meet actual onboard demands and as such truly is a yacht worthy solution.”
