MacNeil Wash Systems Introduces Industry’s Premier Virtual Tunnel Configurator



Barrie, Ontario, Canada (May 20, 2014) – Prospective car wash investors looking to visualize their dream of either an express or full-service tunnel now have a truly advanced and cutting edge technology tool in the MacNeil Carwash Configurator, a software-based virtual simulator from MacNeil Wash Systems.

Developed exclusively for MacNeil distributors and sales associates, the state-of-the-art configurator enables clients to build and customize both three-dimensional perspective and plan-view layouts of a car wash tunnel with a simple series of clicks and drag-and-drop movements where the future owner-operator can move various components of the wash into place and expand and contract the tunnel based on planned space availability. For international customers, an added bonus to the system includes the ability to align right- and/or left-hand layouts to accommodate driver-directional patterns.

Ryko Solutions CEO, Steven L’Heureux, see the new configurator as an industry game changer.

“The car wash investors of today are more sophisticated than ever,” L’Heureux said. “They are expecting the most advanced and easy-to-use tools so that they can simply, quickly and accurately work with our distributors to move through the process of building their facility. This configurator completes the beginning of the ownership experience for the customer by adding those necessary elements of speed and precise design.”

Integral to the new tool is an “overlap” feature, which creates an internal proof of the  tunnel rendering to root out any design flaws or tunnel configuration errors so that they can be easily edited.  Upon completion, the eye-catching tunnel illustrations can then be exported in a colored jpeg format and immediately handed to the client or emailed to the customer for other uses, such as obtaining financial approvals.   For further simplicity, the program has been designed to allow distributors to place orders directly from the software application, rendering the sales process more efficient.
