OmniPost for Student Accommodation
Student accommodation buildings receive a really large number of couriered items, this is mainly down to the continued growth of online shopping.
Many accommodation buildings try to manage all of these inbound deliveries manually using pen, paper and emails. When items arrive they are manually recorded into a book, information which is typically recorded includes date, time, recipient, courier, QTY of items and the tracking number.
Once all of the items have been recorded it will be the accommodations staffs job to email each recipient to tell them they have a delivery and they need to come to reception to collect it.
This whole manual process is really time consuming, prone to error, does not give you management information and leads to a very time consuming process to locate items if something was to go missing. Using OmniPost makes this process a lot easier and a lot less time consuming.
