HOBART WASHSMART app
The HOBART WASHSMART app allows you to call up comprehensive information on the status of the new glasswashers and dishwashers at the push of a button. Among other features, the app informs the end customer well in advance of due maintenance dates or chemical consumption and displays any system messages. Based on this data, the user can avoid standstill, re-order consumables directly via the app, and provide first information to the service technician in advance. Meanwhile, the user can resort to the troubleshooting advice in the app to remedy minor malfunctions themselves. If the problem still cannot be solved, the customer contacts the customer service or a qualified service partner directly via the HOBART app.
Rack-type dishwasher: Innovative – economical – ecological With the enhanced rack-type dishwashers which were presented recently, HOBART offers its customers several meaningful improvements for more efficiency, economy, easier handling, and even better drying results. Additionally, there is the automatic self-cleaning programme as well as the innovative RACK-FLOW sensor system, which doubles the number of racks which can be cleaned consecutively in one-man operation. In addition to being highly reliable and delivering perfect wash results, the new dishwashers are intelligent. The smart machines detect empty sections or different types of wash ware and automatically adapt to the respective situation. This saves operating costs and valuable resources.
