Online shopping has skyrocketed and so too have the number of deliveries to corporate and commercial properties nationwide. As a result, commercial property managers must strategically prepare for this continued growth or they risk putting themselves at a serious competitive disadvantage.
This is where commercial parcel lockers come into play. Electronic, self-service parcel lockers make it quick, easy, and convenient for employees and tenants to manage their packages. Below, please find a brief overview of the top four benefits of parcel lockers for commercial properties:
1. Faster Delivery at a Lower Cost.
Prior to smart lockers, most commercial building mailroom staff would have to go door-to-door or desk-to-desk to deliver their tenants’ packages. This process was made even more cumbersome if the company required a recipient signature to prove delivery. Often times, staff would have to return again and again to ensure that the right person received the correct package. Instead of taking potentially hours to deliver one single package, parcel lockers reduce delivery times to mere minutes. Parcel Pending simplifies the package delivery process by taking care of logging, retrieving, and distributing packages quickly and effectively with little to no involvement from office staff. With Parcel Pending’s commercial solutions, couriers and staff can securely deliver packages to our parcel boxes. Documents can also be effectively and securely inter-mailed to colleagues and supervisors. Recipients are instantly notified when they have a delivery by text or email. Once received, the recipient can pick up the package using the unique combination provided in the notification, or by using our intelligent mobile app. Staff do not need to sign for packages, sort them, or distribute them to recipients—our commercial lockers handle it all.
2. Boost Employee Satisfaction.
According to August Home Study, 53% of employees nationwide are worried about package theft and they have changed their plans so they can be home when their package is scheduled to arrive. In addition, 20% of employees will leave work early if they are expecting a delivery. Employees want to send packages to their workplace – a secure and safe place where they spend most of their day not worrying about porch pirates and missed deliveries. Immediate delivery to a locker ensures immediate delivery even when employees are out of the office or away from their desks.
3. Eliminate liability.
Parcel Pending commercial lockers take care of receiving, logging, tracking, and distributing packages quickly and effectively with little to no involvement from office staff. Every package delivered into a Parcel Pending locker is now the responsibility of Parcel Pending so that corporate campuses and commercial mailrooms are relieved of all responsibilities and liabilities.
4. Simple, secure package management.
Recipients are instantly notified when they have a delivery by text or email. Once received, the recipient can pick up the package using the unique code provided in the notification, or by using our intelligent mobile app. Staff do not need to sign for packages, sort them, or distribute them to recipients—our commercial lockers handle it all. Security cameras are also available to identify who is delivering and picking up the packages.
