We built Patheon to be one of the most flexible, robust car wash POS platforms in the industry. It easily adapts to and grows with your car wash business. These additional components help you get more out of Patheon and your business.

The reliable hardware components we are known for are compatible with Patheon – including our convenient, self-serve Xpress Pay Terminal® 5+ (XPT®).

Mobile Apps
We offer both a Progressive Web App and a native app by Beacon Mobile. When used together, they can create the ultimate customer experience.

Vehicle Recognition
We offer License Plate Recognition (LPR) and RFID technology to recognize monthly wash plan members. Use one or both to quickly recognize plan members and allow them through to your wash.

TunnelWatch® and TCS2

With patented video and advanced computer technology, the NoPileups full-tunnel car wash management system helps increase throughput, identify broken or misaligned equipment and prevent unnecessary collisions.
