Below are some of the key benefits smart lockers can bring to your operations and enable your supply chain to run more efficiently : 

Smart Lockers for Warehouses increase efficiency! 

Warehouses are the busiest hubs in companies with people, machinery, and tooling in constant motion. Speed and time are everything and any way to reduce a worker’s time on a task will only improve the overall efficiency of the operations. 

  • By installing Smart Lockers for warehouses you take away manual tasks of dealing with lost keys or logging locker usage; analytics and insights are tracked automatically while digital security enhances the locker functionality. 
  • By installing Smart Lockers for warehouses you automate locker usage analytics, track which individual is using which locker at what time, and unlock/lock individual locker doors remotely with the click of a button. 

You can also assign individual lockers to each employee and use existing identification cards to unlock and lock their lockers.

Removing the risk of lost keys and reducing the downtime of each worker when you have to unlock the locker manually.

Smart lockers for Warehouses increase security and reduce cost through lost assets. 

One of the most common issues warehouse managers face is the ability to assign, track and secure digital assets at scale. With multiple moving parts in each warehouse, being able to identify and locate the tools for the job is essential.

As warehouse operations become more efficient through the use of digital assets such as handheld scanners and readers it is vital that these assets are tracked both for security as well as inventory assignment. 

By installing Smart Lockers specifically for digital assets you cover all bases. Each device can be stored and charged in an individual locker.

Allowing for each employee to collect and automatically assign the handheld device to themselves at the start of their shift and then log back in, charge and secure at the end of each shift.

Automating this previously manual process you can reduce the time at the start of each shift from minutes to seconds. 

With many digital devices each costing thousands of dollars securing these and ensuring they have been stored correctly is a no brainer.

Smart Lockers can also identify what items have been placed inside the lockers to ensure the devices have been stored and charged at the end of each shift, reducing the cost of lost assets.

Using Smart Lockers for warehouses for employee shift time stamping

One of the big benefits of using Smart Lockers for employees to store and secure their personal belongings is being able to use this to track their hours when they check-in and out for each shift.

Smart Lockers come as standard with a whole suite of tools to track and analyze user inputs. 

Furthermore, Smart Lockers can be connected with the time logging system which enables managers to see how much time is spent on the warehouse floor, ensure security of the employee’s belongings and capture the amount of down time each shift. 

The benefits of Smart Lockers are also felt by the employees, as they no longer have to think about manually scanning an ID card or checking in with the shift manager as all of this is collected automatically and reported directly into the locker management dashboard which can be accessed by any device with an internet connection.
