PSD Codax, the market leading developer of token-free control systems for car wash equipment, is making carwash and jet wash services even easier for customers to use, with barcode technology in its retail terminal and on forecourt equipment.

Forecourt operators who have installed wash equipment with the new Codax Smart-Start option can now give customers a ticket with a barcode as well as the familiar Codax code.

At the wash bay or jet wash machine, the customer simply scans the barcode to start the programme they have purchased.

The barcodes used by Smart-Start are based closely on the proven and highly secure Codax code access system that is in use on thousands of forecourts worldwide.

Wash equipment that has been upgraded to Smart-Start is also compatible with Codax Smartcard – contactless prepay and account cards – and with the Go-Wash app, which allows customers to select and pay for forecourt services on their iPhone or Android smartphone.
