Beyond Car Wash Point-of-Sale

As a car wash operator, you’re in the midst of a major upheaval brought on by increased competition, rapid advances in technology and rising customer expectations. You need more than a point-of-sale (POS) system to help you navigate these challenges.

Enter Patheon. Just like the amazing architecture which helped inspire its name, Patheon is “eons” ahead of traditional POS systems. Beyond simply handling unlimited plans and payments, it’s also a marketing system, an analytics and insights engine, a workforce management tool and so much more. By addressing what you value as a business owner, Patheon transforms your operations and changes how employees and customers feel about your brand.

  • Access common reports and dashboards with real-time analytics  
  • Receive basic hardware and software alerts and view a 7-day history of alerts for each site 

Patheon Point of Sale (POS)

The POS experience is configured in the Portal.
