On 29th August, Haier launched India’s first ‘IoT Enabled Smart Laundry Service’ at Indraprastha College for Women with an aim to revolutionise the mundane washing experience.

Founded in 1924, Indraprastha College for Women (IP College) is the oldest women college established under the University of Delhi. A witness to numerous generations, IP College has stood evident to change. In one such drive for change, IP College became the site of India’s first ‘IoT Enabled Smart Laundry Service’ to transform our very way of living in this world of technology.

On 29th August 2018, Haier- the global leader in Home Appliances & Consumer Electronics and World’s Number one brand in Major Appliances for almost a decade, brought forth a unique technology to cater to all the registered students in the college campus.

As part of a generation where the Internet is the niche of every demand and supply chain, this breakthrough will increase the convenience multifold for all the students by providing them with an end-to-end digitally managed washing experience. This means that while working on an assignment or filtering pictures for Instagram, the user can reserve, schedule, monitor and pay for the services through the consumer-friendly “Haier Wash App”. The added benefit of the entire process is in its simplistic approach as the Haier Wash App makes sure that the users are aware of the steps in between, and it assists them throughout.

One need not keep a constant check of the washing machine, which becomes an essentially tedious process while sharing accommodation space in places like hostels. There is a sense of comfort in knowing that the whole process of washing can be individually managed and adjusted as each washing machine is in a secure connection to the cloud.

The utmost convenience is not only reserved for the users as they receive reminders to take their clothes out once the laundry is done, but the experience also allows proper maintenance of records of the users’ laundry usage. This record acts as a useful tool for authorities and the consumers to maintain transparency in monetary matters.

Contributing its efforts to the cause of ecology in the era of e-commerce, the advanced technology utilised in the commercial washing machines at the Haier Smart Laundry Service helps in avoiding cross-pollution. In a fast-paced lifestyle, the uniquely developed technique of double sterilization-ozone and high-temperature asserts the certainty of hygiene and sanitation without hassling the consumer.

Setting an example for the youth at Indraprastha College and the entire nation as well, Mr Eric Braganza, President, Haier Appliances India commented on the inauguration, “This is a moment of great pride for us to achieve the milestone of setting up India’s first IoT enabled smart laundry service. As we progress further on Haier’s vision to become a global leader in the era of the Internet of Things through its Eco-brand strategy, our focus to create smart solutions for the connected consumer is strengthening. This initiative is a step towards providing high tech, hassle-free laundry solution to today’s millennials who are fast adopters of this hyper-connected age.”
