-- Brinkmat is pleased to launch in Brooklyn and Queens, allowing more New Yorkers to place pickup orders online from local dry cleaners. Using their computer or smartphone, customers in Brooklyn Heights, DUMBO, Park Slope, Prospect Heights, Williamsburg, Boerum Hill, Rego Park, Forest Park, Forest Hills, Woodside, and other neighborhoods can request pickup and pay online in seconds.
Dry cleaners are reminded to pickup and deliver by phone, text messages and emails to ensure a smooth experience. Customers can add pickup and delivery reminders to Outlook, Google, iPhone, and Android calendars. Customers can also choose to be reminded to schedule their next pickup so they'll always have clean clothes.
Founders Tim O’Malley and Jay Winters launched Brinkmat.com earlier this year, experiencing immediate success. Having spent time working at Bloomberg and Microsoft respectively, they later met and worked closely at Goldman Sachs. This work experience, coupled with time spent living in New York, lead the duo to leave corporate America and pursue their own vision-- “It became clear to us that the entire laundry process was broken and needed fixing,” explained Winters.
Brinkmat is New York’s leading online laundry ordering service. Founded in 2012, the company powers a comprehensive e-commerce solution for more than 100 dry cleaners via Brinkmat.com and cleaner-specific websites. A growing number of individuals and companies have begun to make Brinkmat their preferred service for online laundry ordering across New York City.
