Together, we combine the best of both worlds: reliable, German-quality locks and the most flexible Plug’n’Play locker management software. Read this case study to learn how our strategic partnership transforms how companies operate, and people work.

The challenge

Due to fast team growth, our client, a real estate & private equity firm, needed a flexible solution to address the challenges of hybrid working. The locker technology needed to be multifunctional and provide:


  • easily operated employee storage with digital access - free from keys, cards, and codes
  • safe and seamless visitor storage
  • reliable way to share confidential documents between employees on different schedules

The solution

Our all-in-one locker solution, designed by the client’s architects in a smooth wooden finish, matches all the requirements and helps automate internal logistics.

The most reliable locks by our partner Lehmann are powered by the Blocks smart locker technology, enabling:

  • 
Easy locker access via mobile app, QR code, or keycard
  • Self-service storage for visitors, prospects, and future employees
    • QR or PIN codes are generated automatically and sent via email or SMS
  • Safe item handover between employees
    • select a name from the directory on the touch terminal, leave the document and your colleague will get a PIN code via email and Microsoft Teams

In addition, smart lockers simplify operations and make the life of office managers a breeze.

  • Effortless locker management with an extensive admin console that provides a real-time overview of all locker users and utilization
  • Complete control over all lockers, including remote locker opening and changing the locker functions in one click
  • Maintenance-free operations with MS Team integration and automatic software updates that run in the background and don’t disrupt office work
