It is beneficial to manage even a single automatic pick up locker through a centralized cloud service. Managing several compartments centrally makes the work much more efficient. The information is automatically transmitted to the lockers. The employees responsible for managing them are provided with an up-to-date picture of the current state and history of the pick ups. If necessary, the personnel can add extra time for pick ups and the doors can be opened remotely through the service.

The ZeeLive service communicates with the customer and informs them when the order is ready to collect, and the customer can announce their time of arrival using the web based service. The customer service representative can thus organize the delivery logistics efficiently and minimize the time the customer has to use at the pick up station.
