Activity-based, coworking and other such agile type of work space is nowadays an integral, if not the whole, part of many modern smart office buildings. In such workplaces, there is a necessity for a shared, short-term type of smart lockers, which support such workplace dynamic. A shared, short-term locker can be used by multiple employees during the same day (our smart locker system cleaning mode sees to it, that after each user a locker can be disinfected, if needed).
Shared smart lockers also save a lot of storage space, which in office rental terms means a lot of money. If your organisation has smart lockers with shared, short-term locker use, you can have up to 60% less lockers than employees. Space savings equals lower monthly fixed overhead cost. In some cases, the organisations can save up to 30% of the monthly rental cost.
With our smart locker system you can instantly adapt or change certain lock use parameters of your smart lockers. You can instantly change duration of the locker use, available locker key or keys, etc. (if needed, even change shared, short-term lockers to permanent ones). The features and options are almost limitless. Our smart locker system becomes your playground for tailoring your smart locker use so it fits you workplace dynamic.
Shared, short-term lockers are not only limited to your office environment. Shared, short-term type of lockers are also the so-called End-of-Trip lockers on the ground floor of your (rental) office building. In the EoT lockers the employees store items like bicycle helmets, gloves etc., if commuting to work by bike, rollerblades or else. Such smart lockers improve attractiveness of your workplace or smart (rental) office building. The personalized access media, which the employee uses for building access control, time and attendance or other facility system, also becomes a smart locker key. One smart media to enter, to punch in and out, use the elevator, use the smart lockers and maybe even for cashless payments in building cafeteria. Our smart locker system, semalessly integrated into your facility systems, adds meaning to trully smart building and smart workplace user experience.
Apart from the longevity of locker use, a shared, short-term smart locker offers similar options regarding locker use experience as a permanent one. Activity-based lockers can be unlocked on-door, centrally or remotely. The shared lockers with on-door unlocking can have a locker status indicator light (green, if it is vacant, blue if it is occupied) which a permanent lockers doesn’t need. An activity-based locker can be also remotely occupied from our MyMetraKey mobile app (e.g. while commuting to work) or near the locker with the HID app (via Bluetooth)
You can seamlessly use and manage shared lockers alongside permanent, delivery/pick-up, daily and/or End-of-Trip lockers in your office or smart building.
