The innovative company was looking for smart lockers for their new workplace project in Christchurch, to provide staff with self-serve storage lockers without the pain of using and managing keys or codes.


Yellowbox provided a seamless user and management experience for Trade Me, through their latest wired smart locker system:

  • Self-serve with 24/7 support, saving hours for staff and facilities in getting access to a locker.
  • Allowing staff to use existing work login and open locker through mobile phone, through SSO integration.
  • Automated onboarding and offboarding through a web dashboard.
  • Wired powered system to remove all battery maintenance.

Users enjoy a smooth locker experience using their mobile phones, while management benefits from a secure, automated storage solution that requires minimal intervention.
