As an experienced provider of school locker solutions, Davell knows that the annual allocation of lockers to new students is often a complex and protracted process.
To help schools get ready for 2020, Davell has teamed up with StudentLocker, a customised digital platform that automates many of the time-consuming tasks involved with locker allocation and oversight.
Davell understands the storage requirements of school children. We design and manufacture a wide range of quality school lockers with a Lifetime Warranty. When working with schools we are also familiar with the level of administration that occurs at the start of the school year related to locker allocation.
Davell Lockers, coupled with the StudentLocker system, give schools the ability to derive a passive income stream from locker hire revenue – income that schools and P&Cs/P&Fs can use for a multitude of worthwhile causes.
How StudentLocker works
StudentLocker takes away the burden of manual administration. It allows administrators to streamline procedures and provides parents and students, who are accustomed to digital convenience, with easy online processes.
Configuration is still flexible and the school administrator controls the dashboard.
This is how the StudentLocker system works in a typical Australian school:
Administrators decide how lockers will be assigned (for example, by Year Group) and the StudentLocker system will compile the allocation, assigning locks to lockers and lockers to students. An alternative method is available for students/parents to reserve their lockers.
The administrator appoints the day (such as the day before the school year starts) on which the system will send out locker allocation emails to all locker holders. If the school provides locks with combination codes, those codes are included in the email.
StudentLocker processes the hire payments and issues receipts to parents/students. Locker access is enabled.
StudentLocker remits the collected hire fees (minus StudentLocker charges) straight to the school’s bank account at regular intervals.
Ongoing administration is simple, as the app enables school administrators to check details and oversee locker usage online through a secured locker management portal.
The StudentLocker system is very beneficial for school administration as it alleviates around 90% of the mundane tasks associated with locker allocation.
