The Value of Standardization Across Multi-Site Wash Systems

Many businesses have similar operations across multiple locations.  Too often varying locations spread over geographies prevent the businesses from having standardized systems for the operation. 

Working toward standardized systems can be difficult enough that owners and managers will just throw in the towel on achieving any standards and build out branch operations based upon what local contractors and suppliers can provide. 

Standardization across multi-site wash systems can be as difficult to attain as any other facility equipment.  The reason is simple as there are so few experienced contractors capable of designing and building wash systems across the vast geography of the United States.  There are local wash system providers; there are construction contractors; but few that can do both. 

The Benefits of a Standard Wash System

Best Practices

Don’t reinvent the wheel.  By establishing a standard system design, you’re able to incorporate past user experience into a set of best practices.  You have already invested time and money through your operational experience to know basic equipment preferences; what has worked well and what hasn’t; what you could repair and what you couldn’t; effective water treatment for your needs and the not so effective.  Learn from your past experience and establish a standard system for your business.

Operational Experience

You train your staff on how to operate the tools, machinery and systems in your business.  Would you rather have more tools, more machines and more systems to train your staff to use properly or less?  By establishing standard equipment that is used in all of your facilities, you reduce the amount of training required and simultaneously increase the number of people qualified to operate the equipment.  When the same equipment is used at all facilities, any staff member is qualified to operate that equipment no matter where it is in use. 


Utilizing standards across your wash systems means you standardize many of the requirements for maintenance.  Spare parts, chemicals and tools will be common across your branch operations.  Preventive maintenance, PM, schedules can be coordinated to assure PM events occur as required.  You will also maximize the number of qualified staff to support the PM requirements that optimize the performance of the wash system. 

Strong Supplier Partnership

By standardizing on a well-designed and supported wash system, you build a stronger partnership with the equipment supplier.  The benefits listed above also apply to your supplier relationship; you share best practices, system operational experience and maintenance expertise across all of your company wash systems.  Technical support and parts supply chain requirements can become a collaborative and constructive team effort that streamlines and improves your overall wash system performance.
