LaundryView(R) Makes Doing Laundry More Convenient for the Visually Impaired
Date:12/3/2009

WALTHAM, Mass., Dec. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Recent enhancements to LaundryView®, the leading laundry room monitoring system at colleges, universities and multi-housing properties, have significantly improved the user experience for the visually impaired.

The LaundryView site now meets HTML Best Practices published by the State of Illinois and based on recommendations from the Federal Government and the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). The HTML Best Practices aim to provide functional benefits to the disabled as well as designers and other users by granting additional options to use a broader range of technologies. The LaundryView site's compliance was verified using the Functional Accessibility Evaluator (FAE) tool operated by the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

"LaundryView has proven to be a great resource for students over the years so accessibility is important to us. The FAE provided excellent guidance for making LaundryView more accessible and useful for visually impaired users," explained Bob Tuttle, EVP Technology and Information Systems at Mac-Gray.

LaundryView is installed in over 2,500 laundry rooms and enables users to go online to access real-time laundry room status information in various formats, from text-only to a full 3-D rendering of the room. Additionally, text messages or email alerts can be requested to notify the user when their laundry cycle is complete or when machines become available.

Mac-Gray also made improvements to LaundryView that allow greater customization options, enabling LaundryView to be presented in each customer's preferred format. At no additional cost, a client may now choose to add their school colors and logo to the existing LaundryView web site. Additionally, clients can choose to create a custom application to integrate LaundryView data into a student portal or mobile technology.

"We recently personalized the LaundryView web site with our logo and school colors. The site looks great, is consistent with our messaging and reinforces the lively school spirit we enjoy at Lander University," said Chandler Darling, Lander University in Greenwood, SC.

Tuttle concluded, "As the use of student portals, mobile devices and other emerging technologies become increasingly prevalent, Mac-Gray remains committed to working with our academic clients to present the LaundryView system in the preferred method of student communication."
