Locker Administration

Do you need an information rich management system that will give you full audit trails of locker usage? Do you need a master key or system override to open lockers in an emergency? Are you looking for easy onboarding of new hires?  

Security

Are technological integration and security a necessity? Will your lockers need a more sophisticated security system? Do you need to involve your IT team in the process? Perhaps there are software restrictions on your server?  

User Experience

What size does the locker need to be, or do you need a variety? Are keys or codes going to be a problem for employees when forgotten? Or would you like to use existing fobs or cards? Maybe a touchless solution through an app might make someone feel more secure?
