Winterhalter has expanded its Pay Per Wash (PPW) initiative that allows operators to use its warewashers without any upfront cost.
The additional flexibility means that should an end user try PPW and then decide it wants to buy the machine outright, Winterhalter will give it an allowance for the PPW payments it has already made.
Conversely, if the operator finds the system isn’t suitable for it, Winterhalter will take the machine away. The PPW scheme also allows for upgrades – so if business goes up, the operator can switch to a bigger Winterhalter machine.
Pay Per Wash works by using Winterhalter’s Connected Wash technology, which links machines to the internet. The operator selects its required number of wash cycles and prepays using a credit card and an online portal. The portal generates a wash code which the operator enters directly into the dishwasher or glass washer. The site can start washing straight away. As well as getting the machine itself, PPW covers the cost of all chemicals and consumables required, as well as a service package and after sales support.
Stephen Kinkead, MD of Winterhalter, said: “Pay Per Wash is a no-risk, no upfront investment option. That means it could be a huge ‘post-lockdown’ bonus for any foodservice operator needing a new dishwasher or glass washer but working on a tight budget. A key benefit is that, if you’re not actually using the machine, it doesn’t cost you a penny. You only pay when you wash.
“Our latest PPW offer means that, if business grows and you find it would work out cheaper to buy the machine outright, it’s easy to do so – and you’ll get a bigger discount off the list price.”
The cost of Pay Per Wash varies depending on the size and version of the machine, along with its anticipated usage. For example, a large passthrough machine doing 30 washes a day would be around 39p every cycle.
