Standard locker configurations are flexible in design, with variable sized lockers (small, medium, large). Further, as the solution demand grows, it’s easy to add-on columns in the field. Dimensions of the three-column system shown: 75.3”H x 60”W x 16”D
Steep growth in online shopping continues to drive up home and store delivery demands, coupled with legitimate consumer concerns over missed or stolen packages.
The KIOSK LockSpot platform provides a simple and cost-effective path to implement self-service site-to-store delivery options. LockSpot in-store delivery lockers enable administrators to securely and quickly load items then message (email / smart phone) customers for convenient, self-service pickup. Customers can independently scan their bar code or enter on-screen delivery code to access the locker and collect their purchases. Associated retailer benefits are twofold; self-service delivery options free of ongoing labor costs, and increased foot traffic right back into their store.
Representative platform configuration options may include:
19" LCD / Touchscreen
