Desk sharing brings new challenges:
Locker systems as a component of contemporary working environments.
In modern office buildings, the 1:1 allocation of desks is increasingly being abandoned. In many companies, this is almost considered a relic. The trend towards flexible workplaces in the office (hot desk) in home offices, coffee shops or workcations has long since become reality. Therefore, the requirements for companies are also changing; not every employee needs a desk at the same time anymore. He or she simply books a table in an area of the company from which they want to work.
Smart locker systems for companies offer an ideal Solution for objects that are to remain in the office permanently or only briefly overnight. The lockers can be variably assigned so that your employees always have a suitable locker nearby, thus saving time and unnecessary walking. However, the field of application of these systems does not end with the storage solution. Just one example: with the addition of the software LogisticsCube the internal and external mail of your employees can be easily deposited in a system, regardless of their presence in the office. Removal can be done by access card, pin code or smartphone.
Office locker with RFID and integrated charging options.
New hybrid working models are also changing the requirements for office space. The development is moving away from 1:1 allocation towards more flexible models beyond "departmental thinking". Through concepts such as desk sharing (hotdesk), employees can organise themselves flexibly in project teams etc. and also work together spatially.
But where to put the work materials at the end of the working day? This is where locker systems with RFID readers are often used. In addition, the RFID locks supplied by us can be operated with the Variocube software and/or VC-Terminal can be connected. The lockers can be opened, everything stowed away and locked again with the employee ID card, a key-fob, smartphone or touch terminal. Your employees save themselves unnecessary long journeys to the lockers and changing rooms in the basement or the extra weight in their bags.
Officelocker can be used either by the Interior designers planned, from Furniture maker customised and then equipped with our hardware components, or ordered as turnkey units. Optionally, it is also possible to charge devices directly in the compartment by means of a USB connection.
Smart locker systems supplement fobs and cards with a touch- terminal and the use of smartphone.
If the conventional RFID locks are supplemented with a Variocube terminal, the doors of the Officelocker can also be opened with a smartphone or a combination of numbers by entering them on the display. This configuration enables maximum user-friendliness for your employees.
Your advantages with office safe deposit boxes:
- Time saving due to shortened routes.
- Storage space for personal belongings or work materials.
- Use as a logistics hub for goods transfers or consignments.
- Customisable in design - turn-key or made-to-measure.
- Can be used as a room divider to separate areas.

Further use cases for smart locker systems:
We develop innovative processes and locker solutions.
Equipment pickup and return
The cell phone is broken and the responsible department is at an important training for 3 days? How can your employee get hold of the urgently needed replacement device? With our smart locker systems, you can create a handover point in the company that is independent of working hours. Spare devices can be stocked in the locker and released to the respective employees as needed.
Provide tools flexibly in terms of time.
Tools can also be easily lent out via our solution. Your advantage? You have a precise history of who has borrowed which tool from when to when. So you know if there is enough available and where an expensive special tool is currently located.
Simplify spare parts issue and stock pickups.
After a longer than planned day, your assembly team returns and still has to load the material for the next day. But the goods issue area in the internal warehouse is already closed and the warehouse employees are already on their way home? With a smart locker system in your company, picked items can be picked up regardless of time and delays and unnecessary overtime can be reduced.
Your warehouse staff collect all the necessary parts and tools in a locker and send a pickup code to the assembly team after successful storage. Now they can load the vehicle without much hustle and stress.
Internal mail distribution and dispatch
Especially in growing companies, the question often arises: How do I efficiently distribute incoming mail and parcels? Here we have the ideal solution with smart locker systems and software interfaces to their systems. Your colleague at the front desk or in the mailroom accepts mail and packages, registers them and stores them in a locker. Afterwards, the department or an:e employee:in receives a message with a pickup code. In this way, unnecessary trips can be saved and staff can be better deployed. Shipping can also be handled via the system.
Added value for employees: Receiving private parcels
By optionally registering on POBox.app, employees can also have private parcel shipments delivered to the Variocube pick-up station. This saves them the trip to the post office and they are always happy to take their items home on the same day.
