ISTOBAL develops the first smart vacuum

ISTOBAL, Spain’s leading group of car wash and car care solutions, has launched the first smart vacuum cleaner with connectivity, pay-as-you-go and standby mode to increase business, through its partner in Ireland, Gough Brothers,

Intended for the dry vacuuming of car and van interiors, this is an innovative single-bay self-service vacuum for service stations and professional wash facilities. The ISTOBAL 4AA1200 vacuum cleaner comes with a standard version and an IoT version with Smartwash by ISTOBAL connectivity hardware to enjoy all the advantages of a digitised wash facility. This allows the facility manager to know and manage
accounting data such as revenue and promotions and know the status of the vacuum cleaner in real time, boosting productivity and much more.

High profitability 

This smart vacuum cleaner offers high profitability for the business by having a minimum operating cost and a quick return on investment. In addition, the version with Smartwash connectivity allows you to increase your average ticket and cross-sell opportunities, among other options to boost the profitability of your car wash facilities.

Modern and customisable in design and with high efficiency and durability, it enables flexible configuration and incorporates a wide range of payment methods such as bank card, loyalty card, code, coins and payment with the ISTOBAL app.

The best user experience

This vacuum cleaner is also the first on the market to incorporate features such as pay-as-you-go and stand-by mode. The user then pays only for what they consume, except for the cash payment method. Standby mode allows vacuuming to be paused when the user performs different actions inside the vehicle (moving seats, removing floor mats, etc.) at an internal cost at the usage fee or free of charge.

In addition to the vacuuming program, it incorporates a second program with the blow gun functionality, in order to remove dust from the corners of the interior, or the fragrance sprayer, for a perfect finish when vacuuming. A colour touch screen display is also available to indicate the selected service as well as remaining programme time in minutes and seconds.

The ISTOBAL 4AA1200 vacuum cleaner is also suitable for people with reduced mobility due to its design and ergonomics, as well as the addition of a touchscreen with a keyboard for enhanced user experience.
