Considerations for Smart Locker Connectivity
With a workforce that is more mobile and dynamic than ever, businesses are relying more heavily on systems that improve accessibility and efficiency wherever possible. It’s clear why smart lockers are becoming the most sought after solution for locations with variable users and flexible schedules. (Noke).
Smart Locker Connectivity
Many smart lockers have credit card terminals, digital advertising, and other applications that require connectivity to the internet in order to access remote updates and acquire key performance indicators such as how often is the smart locker being used, how much revenue is the smart locker generating, online/offline statuses, inventory levels, and more.
One thing all smart lockers have in common is that to be smart, they must connect to the internet. Having a consistent, reliable connection anywhere can be challenging. That is why OptConnect has been focused on helping smart locker operators connect to the internet with a fully managed solution that instantly works and keeps working. This means:
- No waiting for local IT
