The smart locker network concept comes to the Philippines

A unique concept has come to the Philippines to fulfill the need for contactless delivery and safe storage during this time of the pandemic. 

The smart locker service has become extremely popular in Asian countries. Very soon, the QUBE Smart Locker powered by Box24 will be installed in various locations such as DMCI Homes, MyTown Co-Living, Serendra under Ayala Malls, and many more pilot locations within the metro.

Elcid Lao, CEO of LAUNDRAFÉBox Corporation—the company behind QUBE Smart Locker— expounds, “QUBE Smart Locker is a brand-new service provider and system on 

its own. It is the first smart locker system in the Philippines. We are confident that Filipinos will embrace it as the concept offers a graceful start in innovative technology.”

By downloading the Box24 app, clients are entitled to 24/7-access to smart lockers that can be used for a variety of drop-off and pick-up services such as laundry, logistics, storage, bills payment, and shopping. 

Clients can enjoy the convenience of having a personal locker that is near their own residence or workplace. The contemporary service also allows parcel pick-ups during the client’s preferred time without worrying whether the building staff has received it or not. Most of all, the smart locker totally eliminates the precarious face-to-face encounters associated with delivery of parcel and goods. New users are also entitled to a Php. 150.00 off on their first transaction by using the promo code NEW150. This promo code is available for one time use only and exclusively for first time users.

Cid underscores the contactless features of QUBE smart locker by saying, “The smart lockers are 100% cashless. Clients can pay online through the mobile application available on Android and iOS. Thus, the smart lockers ensure safety against the exposure to COVID-19 or other contagious diseases.” 

The QUBE smart locker runs 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. A barcode scanner is installed within the smart locker for enabling the QuickPin. Clients or courier riders would retrieve this one-time QuickPin through the digital monitor to open the locker and access its contents. 

Thanks to the contactless payment technology powered by 2C2P, clients can pay for the services through the app itself or the smart locker via debit card, credit card, GCash and PayMaya.

The world has certainly embraced the smart locker lifestyle. In Thailand for instance, the smart locker network includes around 200 condominiums and buildings. Customers who are loyal to the service appreciate the convenience of having the ability to order and pick up their purchases from the locker at any time. Likewise, online sellers declare that they enjoy the ease of sending off orders at their most convenient business hours and hassle-free logistics. 

The potential satisfaction extends beyond the users of the app. QUBE powered by BOX24 welcomes entrepreneurs and building owners who would like to set up the smart locker in a space with high traffic such as condominiums, office buildings, or even malls. The QUBE smart locker has various features that make it an attractive business option. 

It is electricity operated; once plugged into an outlet, the smart locker is instantly operational. QUBE smart locker is powered by 5G unlimited Internet data so that connectivity to the Internet is smooth and seamless, even in areas that are considered as “dead spots.” The smart locker also has an auto-shutdown feature that prevents it from being opened when it has been moved or tampered with. Customers and smart locker owners can have the peace of mind that their property is safe from theft or damage. 

What’s more; the QUBE smart locker is touch screen operated, which enables business partners to display ads in the smart locker monitor. 

As restrictions are being lifted, and commerce, tourism, and other activities are slowly re-starting amidst the threat of COVID-19, Cid sees QUBE as an essential service.  He reiterates, “This pandemic is nothing but a time of health uncertainty. Even though many individuals practice health protocols in order to stay safe, staying at home encourages our citizens to adjust to a new normal by purchasing items and ordering food from the safety of their own home. Hence, smart lockers can definitely ensure contactless transactions to secure the idea of safe buying and moving for every Filipino utilizing online shopping service.”

After signing up, tap on the service that you desire: Wash for laundry, Drop for personal storage, Pay for payments, Shop for e-commerce and online shopping, and Go for parcel movement and delivery.
