The digital revolution has changed our society in dramatic ways. We all navigate these changes with varying degrees of comfort, worry, excitement, fear, ominous and optimism. Whether we accept it or not, our lives are constructed and enabled by the ever-changing modern technologies and innovations within them.
While technology has undoubtedly made the specifics of our lives easier, maintaining integrity when it comes to safety and security is just as important. Today, we're looking at how smart lockers can be incredibly convenient and secure
Smart lockers facilitate businesses and consumers from several vantage points. Features such as easy access, instant message alerts, temperature and weather-controlled interior locker environments, customizable colors and sizes, and minimizing labor costs and task duration are some of the big factors in the convenience of smart lockers.
First, smart lockers are locked. They are almost impossible to break in without a password. These containers keep the deliverables safe until the individual arrives to pick up the package. Items do not wait on the front porch of an apartment complex. They don't get smashed into a bunch of other packages in the mailroom. With smart lockers, the porch theft crisis is virtually eliminated. Items waiting to be delivered are effectively well organized until people come to collect them. It may seem simple, but it's surprising what happens in the "last mile" - a conundrum that has plagued supply chains since ancient times. The importance and real-life effectiveness of the locker, the most important element, cannot be overlooked.
Then, minimal human-to-human interaction. Human interaction is the foundation of some business enterprises. These types of interactions also take time and effort. Minimize our face-to-face time during this particular global time, when our supply chains are strained to the point of collapse and expanded human-to-human communication is at high risk of spreading a highly contagious and deadly virus Become accurate emergency crisis response. This is a responsible and ethical business choice for employees and customers.
Finally, individuals are immediately notified of this information when deliverables arrive - enabling them to plan their day accordingly. This communication is clear and easily accessible through simple notifications on the smart tablet. This immediacy adds an element of safety to a variety of scenarios: fresh food has arrived and should be eaten and/or processed just in time. Urgently needed medical prescriptions are available immediately.
From these examples, we can see that smart lockers are not only safe, but are actually a huge improvement over existing systems for the delivery and office space of transferable items.
Our world is changing rapidly - which means our systems must improve with the times. Smart lockers are efficient, adaptable, and well suited to the challenges and opportunities we face in our communities, as well as part of improving the fabric of society. Convenience is king, but security persists.
