Reclaim time, save space, and keep students safe with 

Smiota’s end-to-end mail and package management solution

When thousands of students live on campus, manual mailroom management methods just can’t keep up. The good news is that there’s an easy way to relieve staff from stressful, time-consuming mailroom tasks while creating a better student experience.

Smiota combines smart lockers with mailroom software (or integrates with your existing software) to offer an end-to-end solution for both mail and package deliveries. This solution works for open and closed campuses — couriers can deliver to lockers at multiple dorms and buildings or to a single, centralized mailroom.

Smart lockers reduce package handling time from three minutes to less than 15 seconds per package. So mailrooms can make the best use of available space, optimize package protection, and support social distancing. And students can pick up deliveries at their convenience — no more waiting in pickup lines that make them late for class.

Smarter mail handeling with Smiota Smart Mail

Universities receive thousands of letters and mail pieces every day. Even though only 10% of students receive a letter on a given day, each student typically has a PO box. This takes up a lot of mailroom space and requires countless hours of staff time to:

  • Collect, distribute, and test keys
  • Assign PO boxes and notify new students
  • Look up mislabeled letters
  • Deposit letters into the right box numbers
  • Manually track down lost mail

Smiota’s comprehensive end-to-end solution manages both packages and mail, so there’s no need to have a separate solution for each. 

With smart mailboxes added to each smart locker installation, the process of depositing letters is similar to depositing packages — and it’s much faster than slotting mail into individual boxes. Smart mailboxes take up less space than traditional PO boxes, they provide automatic tracking for letters, and students can receive notifications for both packages and mail through the same system. 

    Expand features, functionality, and fun

    Smiota’s smart lockers come in indoor, outdoor, temperature-controlled, and laminate models to best suit the installation environment and purpose. And it’s easy to boost protective features or add a splash of school spirit with customizable colors, materials, and wraps.
