Save on labour costs or reallocate staff

Have you ever stopped to think about how much time staff spend managing parcels? We have… It is between four to five minutes per parcel when you factor in receiving, storing, logging, notifying, and collection. For a 650-bed property, this can equate to 22 hours a week or more than $40,000 in labour costs a year, not to mention the more important tasks staff could be doing to look after residents with this time.

Integration with StarRez

Groundfloor™ offers a direct integration with StarRez for unparalleled ease of operation. When integrated with StarRez, your residents are automatically imported and kept in sync. This means the resident data in Groundfloor™ is always up to date with no additional effort required as residents come and go or update their contact details.

Not with StarRez? Fear not, Groundfloor™ integrates with many management portals and we also have solutions for buildings that don’t use portals.

Why your student accommodation property needs secure parcel lockers

Students are amongst the most prolific online shoppers with e-commerce continuing to grow relentlessly. Traditionally, residence management staff have personally handled every parcel by logging it, interacting with the couriers, sending notifications to students and storing items until pick-up. As the packages continue to pile up, this has become a costly and inefficient process detracting staff from focusing on student well-being. Let us show you how a 1500-bed student accommodation can save up to 2,500 staff hours per year at full occupancy.

We receive deliveries from ALL delivery companies

Food Delivery Lockers

Food delivery is rapidly becoming as big an issue for student accommodation as parcel delivery. Food being left unattended brings all kinds of associated drama, including theft and mess. Groundfloor™ can receive deliveries from ANY delivery company, not just parcels! With Groundfloor™ insulated inserts our lockers can securely store and notify students to collect their food delivery while keeping cold items cool and hot items warm. COMING SOON!

How to use Parcel Lockers

Groundfloor™ has a multitude of delivery solutions customised to your requirements.

Concierge Collect

Sometimes no matter how big your lockers are, students will order something that is just too big! Groundfloor™ has come up with a solution that allows a courier driver to deliver to the desk, the same way they would to a parcel locker. All the functionality of the parcel lockers is the same including notifying the recipient and providing a digital signature except the staff at the desk will take the delivery to be stored in a secure place. This solution is also perfect for properties that don’t have the space in common areas for a parcel locker system.
