The Express product line addresses the need for those communities that might not have the financial means for a significant investment – nor the space for a large installation – but are still dealing with the pains of high-volume packages.
BOSTON (PRWEB) June 22, 2017
Package Concierge®, the multifamily industry’s preeminent supplier and innovator of electronic package management solutions, today announced the availability of two new products designed to further expand package management capabilities industry-wide: Package Concierge Express® and Package Concierge Package Room®.
The new Express® lockers are a more cost-effective option for apartment owner/operators seeking a comprehensive answer to their package management issues. The streamlined, all-steel construction, double-column locker modules are made in the USA by Package Concierge’s manufacturing partner, Florence Corporation, and a fellow subsidiary of Gibraltar Industries (Nasdaq: ROCK), and offer secure, 24/7 self-service, automated package lockers.
A recent study conducted by the National Multifamily Housing Council indicated that package management is now a must-have amenity in the multifamily industry, with 72 percent of residents wanting a package delivery/holding area readily accessible.
“New construction and luxury communities have embraced package lockers,” said Georgianna W. Oliver, chief executive officer of Package Concierge. “However, the upfront investment and locker size have hindered installations at smaller and older properties, as well as at Class B and C assets. The Express product line addresses the need for those communities that might not have the financial means for a significant investment – nor the space for a large installation – but are still dealing with the pains of high-volume packages. Now all properties have the same opportunity to streamline operations and provide their residents with a convenience-focused amenity.”
The new Express lockers are:
- Built of the same high quality, all-steel construction
- Made in the USA
- The kiosk which includes 12 lockers can be used as a standalone system
- Easier to install with its shorter stack and double column design
- ADA compliant for height and reach
- ETL Certified for Fire and Safety
Further expanding the accessibility of innovated and proven package management solutions, Package Concierge also now offers a Package Room Access Control System®. The Package Room® combines the best of both worlds utilizing the Express Locker kiosk, which includes 12 lockers, as well as a small room on a property to serve as an overflow solution. This combination can completely eliminate the management burden of handling packages, as it provides a designated space for larger packages that don’t fit into the lockers. Additionally, it offers the ability to use the room specifically for carrier pick-up of resident shipping and returns.
“As package delivery continues to escalate, it’s more important than ever to provide a timely, convenient service for residents,” said Oliver. “With the installation of the Package Concierge Express® system, owner/operators are ensuring residents have immediate access to their package deliveries on the day they arrive. As an added benefit, the leasing teams will have the time they need to focus on customer service instead of package management.”
