Prepare for Your Employees to Return to the Office By Investing in Electronic Parcel Lockers
Corporate mailrooms nationwide receive an average of up to 1,000 packages every day, and this number is expected to continue growing, especially as employers look to have their employees return to work in a shared office space.
Many commercial office spaces lack the time and space needed to properly manage personal and work-related deliveries. This often results in disorganized and cluttered mailrooms, overloaded mailroom staff time, lost packages, and stressed-out office staff and employees.
Electronic lockers are a great package management solution for corporate campuses and offices. These work lockers offer a number of benefits for commercial spaces, including saving valuable mailroom staff time, improving staff efficiencies and the overall employee experience, as well as helping employers save on operational costs.
Seamless Package Management
Over half of workers nationwide make online purchases while on the job. However, they’re not having their personal online orders and packages delivered to their home. Instead, many are opting to ship their personal packages to their workspace to help protect against package theft of their personal items or belongings. We expect this trend to continue once COVID-19 restrictions are lifted and office reopening begins.
While it may be easy for an employee to click and ship a personal package to themselves at work, it is not easy for their employer to manage the daily influx of employee packages. It often takes corporate mailroom staff a tremendous amount of time and resources to manage employee packages. This is valuable time that could be better spent on handling tenant requests and managing the office space.
That is why commercial property managers should invest in electronic locker solutions, such as those offered by Parcel Pending by Quadient, to help alleviate their package problems.
Our secure, durable, and self-service electronic lockers ease the burden of package management for commercial property managers by offering a convenient, easy and contact-free way for their workers and tenants to retrieve their packages.
Parcel Pending alleviates the stress of property management duties by assuming all customer service responsibilities for package delivery, notification, and retrieval. Our locker systems tracks each delivery and pickup, providing building managers with a full chain of custody and visibility for each package. Building managers no longer have to waste valuable time accepting, logging, sorting, and distributing packages.
In fact, our parcel lockers can help commercial building managers save up to 24 hours of staff time each week – a significant savings when it comes to operational costs. Building managers can have peace of mind knowing that Parcel Pending lockers can securely manage the chain of custody for all package deliveries to their commercial properties.
With our intelligent parcel locker system, recipients are instantly notified when they have a delivery by text or email. The recipient can then pick up their package using the unique code provided in the notification, or by using our mobile app. Building staff do not need to sign for, sort, or distribute packages to recipients — our commercial locker solutions handle it all. These work lockers include a camera to capture each package retrieval and solutions can also be placed in locations with video security cameras, allowing building managers to identify who is delivering and picking up the packages.
Key operational benefits include:
- Eliminating the lengthy process of accepting, logging, sorting, and distributing employee packages, saving up to 24 hours of staff time each week
