Self-serve, automated solutions are being utilized by companies across various industries in order to yield significant operational efficiencies and savings.
Work with the Apex Cloud automation platform, Apex Supply Chain Technologies' smart lockers offer employees 24/7 self-serve device check-out and check-in. Users can scan their ID or enter their PIN to collect their device.
Managers automatically receive detailed records of who checked out each device and when they returned it. They also get email alerts if a device isn't returned on time or needs repair.
- Labor hours reduced: The self-serve solution is fast, eliminating wait times. Customers have reported the time in between an employee clocking in and their first scan drops from an average of 13 minutes to mere seconds. By eliminating this shift change friction, employees spend more time on task, boost productivity.
- Create employee accountability: Employees are more careful with their devices and end of shift returns increase significantly. If an employee forgets to return an item, managers are notified automatically and can follow up with the employee.
- Reduce device replacement costs: Since each device is tracked to the employee that checked them out, damage, theft and loss are virtually eliminated. Replacement costs plummet an average of 40%, significantly reducing the need for spare devices and device repairs.
