ARM® Recurring Payment Handling

AUTOMATIC RECHARGE MODULE (ARM),  Makes for Easy & Automatic Monthly Plan Management


Automatic Recharge Module (ARM) renews monthly wash passes by automatically charging your customers’ credit cards.

This makes it more practical to sell, control and manage monthly wash passes than ever before. Monthly passes make your business less weather-dependent by providing a steady recurring revenue stream, rain or shine.


Here’s What Automatic Recharge Module Can Do:

  • Passes renew automatically without burying you in paperwork. Passes can be renewed on their anniversary date so that prorating plans is not needed; or all passes can be renewed on the same date each month. The choice is yours.
  • Prevent “pass sharing” by tying each monthly pass to a specific vehicle, using FastPass® Vehicle Tags and the Xpress Pay Terminal®
  • Protect against abuse by controlling monthly pass transactions without depending on the actions of your employees

This makes selling monthly wash passes a realistic option for any car wash — exterior, flex-serve or full-service.  Selling monthly passes for a chain of carwashes is just as simple.


Other Powerful Features

  • A Flexible System – The Automatic Recharge Module can be used with FastPass Windshield Tags and the SiteWatch Xpress Pay Terminal, the SiteWatch Portable Touchscreen Terminal or any SiteWatch barcode reader.
  • Daily Reports – SiteWatch provides detailed daily reports on monthly pass transactions including the number of passes sold, the number of passes deactivated and the number of washes redeemed by pass customers.
  • Optional Website Integration – Pass plans can be sold online and integrated directly into the SiteWatch System using our WebConnect tool.
  • A Prepaid Card Tool – You can automatically charge prepaid cards by billing customer credit cards when prepaid accounts fall below specified number of wash units.

Many operators have always wanted to sell monthly wash passes, but the issues of paperwork and control have held them back. Now these obstacles have been removed thanks to the Automatic Recharge Module.


AUTOMATIC RECHARGE MODULE, A Key Component to the Growth Suite:

Working in conjunction with the Xpress Pay Terminal (XPT) and FastPass, ARM is the software tool behind your monthly plan management that allows for a superior customer experience.  When your customer is an active member of one of your ARM plans, this powerful software processes that transaction instantaneously at the XPT by reading the FastPass tag in the windshield.  The instant the FastPass tag is read, the ARM Software identifies the plan type, the transaction is complete, the gate goes up, the customer is through the gate and on their way to the tunnel.  It is a seamless transaction process. The transaction time using the Growth Suite products is the fastest method of processing vehicles at your site.
