Unitec was founded in 1983 by Jeff Ousborne an electrical engineer and Erik Eden a car wash distributor who joined forces to develop the first discrete code entry system for the car wash market. From a basement workshop the two partners designed, produced and marketed their “Touch N’Go” system engineered to prevent the costly abuse inherent in the then current ‘code-of-the-day’ system. Unitec was incorporated in 1985 and was in full production at their first ‘true’ commercial manufacturing facility by 1987.
Throughout the 1980s “Touch N’Go,” marketed as the TGR series, evolved to meet ever-changing market needs. By the end of the decade, the petroleum site car wash market was a dominant force in the industry. Unitec met the demand for a sophisticated marketing control system, including merchandising options and accounting reports, with the introduction of the POS 4000 console.
By 1992, Unitec was securely positioned at the forefront of technology in the petroleum car wash market, working closely with petroleum companies to develop the UNI-CAM™ interface software that allows customers to purchase car washes at the gas pump, in the C-store or at the car wash entrance. By providing multiple points of sale, UNI-CAM generated greater sales and increased profits for site owners.
Unitec’s successful growth can be largely attributed to the importance of customer interface. With the 1994 launch of Enterlink®, Unitec’s first complete car wash entrance system, recordable voice messages, buy-up prompt messages and graphic displays were introduced to the industry. These features have increased customer satisfaction and promoted higher purchase values.
