Smart Lockers at HOKA, an Athletic Shoe Company

Smart Lockers at HOKA an Athletic Shoe Company

A Modern Locale for Worldwide Runners

HOKA, an athletic shoe company that designs and markets running shoes, opened a brand new HOKA store in Hollywood, CA. They wanted to offer lockers so runners can safely store their car keys, wallet, and other belongings. Ojmar’s new OCS Smart lock made the choice simple thanks to its flexibility, locker management, and functionality. Below are the three main features that helped solidify HOKA’s choice for locks.

Ojmar’s OCS Smart with Bluetooth lets users open the lockers remotely with their phones, or through the keypad when their phones run out of battery.

Flexibility

The ability to use a smartphone or keypad to operate the lockers. Many runners like listening to music while running. For these people, closing and opening the lockers with a smartphone is ideal, while giving them a complete “touchless” experience. The user app remembers the locker used (number) and provides a backup user code for peace of mind if their phone runs out of battery. This solves 99% of the issues with combination locks.

Locker Management

Managers at the store don’t need a master key, which often gets lost. They manage everything from their Ipad or phone. They can operate lockers directly from the maintenance app, read battery status, read events, provide permission to other store employees and change the master code backup as many times as needed.

Functionality

Thanks to the maintenance app it’s easy to assign a locker with an expiration date and remotely provide permission to a user. This can be very useful for online orders to be picked up at the store. Permission is provided via a user code or smartphone permit.

Store managers can use these lockers for daily rentals, assigned employee lockers, or even online order pick-up.

For the HOKA Store Manager having the possibility to easily manage the lockers via a phone/Ipad is extremely convenient and one of the main reasons to choose the OCS Smart. They also value that the user app will be of great help to the locker users and reduce the time spent troubleshooting.

10 Smart Locker Benefits for Day Use

10 Smart Locker Benefits for Day Use

The office is transforming to accommodate a rise in remote work and a preference for flexibility. Many employees are spending more time away from the office, using coworking spaces, and taking opportunities to travel. But as they’re coming and going, employees and other visitors need a safe place to stow their belongings for the day. Here are 10 smart locker benefits that make the perfect day-use solution.

#1 Secure

Smart lockers give guests peace of mind. Heavy-duty, tamper-proof features and automatically-generated unique passcodes prevent unauthorized access, and the system keeps track of every transaction to ensure nothing gets lost or stolen.

#2 Convenient

A simple, user-friendly workflow makes it a breeze for employees and visitors to reserve and use the lockers as needed. And it takes just seconds to drop off or pick up items on the way to their next destination.

#3 Contactless

Smart lockers are part of the new normal. They help corporations support social distancing by allowing employees and visitors to secure their items all on their own, without staff assistance. They also reduce touchpoints — users can trigger the auto-open locker doors from a mobile app, so they don’t need to use a shared touchscreen.

#4 Clean

To help minimize the spread of pathogens, admins can put lockers on hold for cleaning between uses. The lockers are easy to wipe down and disinfect, and optional add-ons like antimicrobial materials and UV sanitation help speed up the process.

#5 Customized

With a wide variety of locker types, sizes, and configurations, smart lockers can handle almost anything. And they come in countless colors and materials to blend into a business’ brand or stand out with an eye-catching design.

#6 Space-saving

No need to set aside extra rooms for guest items. Smart lockers bring safe storage to shared spaces like lobbies and hallways so they’re easily accessible.

#7 Time-saving

Because of the self-serve nature of smart lockers, businesses won’t need to designate staff to manage and monitor belongings, saving time and cutting down on operational costs.

#8 Tech-powered

Employees are always looking for technology that helps them accomplish more during the workday — and smart lockers deliver. The technology behind smart lockers supports integrations with other company systems, further boosting simplicity, convenience, and efficiency.

#9 Automated

From text and email notifications to package sensors to real-time analytics, smart lockers include fully automated features that take all the guesswork out of temporary storage.

#10 Flexible

The workplace is constantly changing to keep up with the trends. So while businesses might need day-use lockers today, they might be looking for a new solution tomorrow. The good news is smart lockers easily adapt to the ever-evolving workplace. Using the same platform, companies can manage package and food deliveries, facilitate the transfer of IT assets, help onboard employees, and so much more.

So there are our 10 smart locker benefits for day use. Smart lockers can also provide temporary storage for hotels, libraries, universities, and many other places.
