MISSISSAUGA, ON, March 3, 2022 /CNW/ - Ricoh Canada Inc. is pleased to announce the launch of its Smart Lockers as part of its digital workspace solutions. With businesses across Canada looking towards hybrid work models for their employees, Smart Lockers enhance office workspaces for organizations of all sizes by driving operational efficiencies that put the changing needs of employees and customers first.

"Canadian businesses are adapting to meet the evolving needs of employees and customers as they transition to a post-pandemic environment," said Craig Brown, Director, Products & Solutions, Ricoh Canada. "Our Smart Lockers offer an innovative combination of space-efficient workspace storage with flexible configurations and the latest connected technology to support hybrid work models and processes to keep businesses moving forward – from retail to higher-education institutions, logistics, e-commerce and more." 

Ricoh's Smart Lockers empower organizations to redefine in-office workspaces with advanced storage solutions that drive efficiency by transforming how resources are managed – from incoming mail and parcels to controlling valuable inventories. The indoor and outdoor digital lockers are intelligently controlled by integrated software for 24/7 manageable access, end-to-end usage tracking, automation, and full management reporting capabilities that ensure transparency, accountability, and security.

The innovative offering is scalable to meet a wide variety of applications including:

Corporate Day LockersGive employees and visitors a secure, temporary place to store personal belongings while in the office. Users can conveniently reserve a locker in advance via mobile device, or on-demand via a touch-screen console. Facilitate a 'Contactless Reception' by storing visitor badges where they can be safely accessed and returned.

Asset/IT Inventory Management LockersImprove governance of business inventory including IT assets, consumables, and stationery. Take total control over assets to know when something has been checked out, how long it was checked out for and when it was returned.

Mail & Parcel Management LockersProvide a secure space for employees to retrieve and store packages – saving time and workload for mailroom employees.

Retail Fulfillment ServicesMeet the need of customers who want to buy online and pick up in-store (BOPiS) by making it possible to pick up their order the same day, with contactless service.

The way we work has changed and businesses of all sizes are rapidly evolving to meet the changing needs of customers and employees while creating ways to better compete in the digital age. Ricoh's Smart Lockers support the needs of businesses to adapt quickly and seamlessly to thrive in the new world of work – and redefine change. For better.
