MCWW's CruzControl™ solution epitomizes the Future of Connectedness. It revolutionizes car wash operations to maximize uptime, optimize operations, and provide a level of visibility never before seen in the car wash industry. Here are some critical factors behind the solution:
- Network uptime is imperative: In the car wash industry, the No. 1 key to success is uptime. Everything from machinery data to surveillance cameras to PCI-compliant point-of-sale information depends on 24x7 network access. All network connections from the LAN to the WAN need to be consistent and dependable.
- Data-driven approach to car washing: Motor City consolidates data from each site — industrial motors’ vibration speeds, brush penetration and more — and processes it in the data center to send digestible, actionable insights to each car wash management team. The consolidated view allows the CruzControl™ analytical engine to draw conclusions not possible with older wash operations platforms.
- Turnkey solution simplifies deployment and operations: Motor City eliminates the barriers of entry to opening a car wash business by offering a turnkey “car wash in a box” solution that includes a fully assembled IT rack with all the enterprise networking components and accessories needed to connect every IP-enabled device. Further, car wash owners subscribe to a simple as-a-service offering, where they pay a monthly subscription for ongoing maintenance and support
- Built on leading-edge technology including 5G/LTE Wireless WAN and Wi-Fi 6/6E: The CruzControl solution leverages new and emerging technologies, including 5G Wireless WAN solutions, edge computing, Wi-Fi 6 and 6E, fabric networking, IoT, cloud management, and more. Motor City relied on STEP CG to plan, design, integrate, and deploy the Cradlepoint and Extreme solution.
