Main Challenges

Meeting new business needs – The latest outbreak skyrocketed the demand for contactless delivery solutions. Apart from retails, other industries began to deploy smart lockers, including biotechnology firms, healthcare facilities, corporations, and government institutions. In this project, managing higher volumes at the time of lockdown was a challenge.


Outdoor installation – Weatherproof outdoor locker systems are designed and engineered to protect boxes or packages and stand up to whatever the day may bring; sun, rain, snow, and wind. All the components in the system must be rugged and durable enough to withstand challenging outdoor environments.
