We can’t deny that we live in an increasingly hyper-digital world. Even the traditional lockers you see in just about every teen movie have now transformed into intelligent lockers
If you can’t beat them, join them, right? ?
Beyond the fact that intelligent lockers are cool, they’re also incredibly secure and contribute to greater efficiency and cost savings at work. In this post, we’ve made it our mission to show you why.
1. They’re more secure
Sure, lockers seem like they’re a safe place for your personal belongings and assets, but they’re not impregnable. It’s quite possible for someone to break into a locker or pick a lock. It’s just not the most secure solution for your valuables, personal belongings or company assets and devices. Intelligent lockers can be managed via a dashboard dedicated to allocating and managing space, and can only be unlocked with the owner’s ID card. At eLocker, our intelligent lockers can even be unlocked with your team’s existing ID cards—you don’t need to go through the hassle of replacing them ?
2. You can manage your space better
Another reason why intelligent lockers are a good idea is because they help you manage your space better. Whether you work in a warehouse or a traditional office setting, these storage solutions make space management tons easier ? You can get rid of clutter or any unsightly (but necessary) tools and KNOW EXACTLY where they are. Managing your space is not just about the utility of it. It also has plenty to do with employee wellbeing and safety. Prevent workplace accidents and give your teams plenty of space to move around by putting a little more thought into how you store things at work!
3. They make things more efficient
Imagine all the time (and money) you’d save if your teams knew exactly where they put their tools and devices? With a centralized model of managing your storage, you avoid spending money to replace devices you already have but have just been misplaced. You also don’t waste precious time scouring around the office for your camera or cartridge, when you know exactly where everything is stored.
Some of our intelligent lockers at eLocker also come with a function where your teams can automatically choose available lockers, without you having to get involved! They literally save time and money ?
4. They contribute to employee wellbeing
Did you know that our living environments (like the workplace) play a major role in your employees’ wellbeing and your own?
If your workspace is cluttered and your teams don’t have the space to store their belongings securely, this can lead to undercurrents of dissatisfaction and frustration. With intelligent lockers, you kill two birds with one stone ? It’s an easy way to keep your teams happy and your workspace or warehouse a safe and happy place to work!
5. Asset management is significantly easier
Asset management is a major priority for workspaces across the UK. In our experience, we’ve seen that this is particularly important for businesses that rely on various tools and devices to do the work they do.
If this has been a concern for you, asset management lockers are very useful because they also come with a centralised dashboard that helps you manage your storage and assets. This way, you have a complete overview of where your things are, without the stress of finding them in a hurry ?
Invest in intelligent lockers to transform your workplace!
As we move into a world much like the one the Jetsons lived in, storage solutions like intelligent lockers are only going to become more of the norm, rather than the exception.
