Ask the Expert: What New Storage Ideas Have Improved the Mobile Workforce?

Jul 15, 2020 3:09:40 PM / by Florizel Hancox, Managing Director, Digilock posted in Personal Storage, electronic locks, workspace


Ten years ago when you went to your office, it was always your office. Now, as flexible work arrangements and telecommuting become more common, employees may find themselves spending a day in a pod that might not be theirs tomorrow. And while workers may enjoy this greater mobility, with it comes a new set of security challenges. Luckily electronic locking solutions are more than capable of rising to the task.

Take, for example, a scenario in which one employee occupies a desk from 9 to 5 and another takes over for the night shift from 5 to midnight. With a keyless electronic lock capable of assigning access, authorizations for each employee can be set independently, maximizing use of space and allowing for painless changeover.

How to Limit Employee Contact: Streamline Package Delivery in the Workplace

While some states are putting workplace reopening plans on pause, other states such as Vermont, Maine, New Hampshire, Iowa, and Arkansas, are experiencing a drastic decrease in COVID cases and are returning to the office.

States such as California and Florida are not quite ready to enter the next phase in their plans for reopening. According to the CDC, the interruption in normal work operations is an opportunity to ensure you have a COVID-19 plan in place.

Q: Hi Hans Schippers, first of all thanks for your time and how nice of you to let me interview you. Could you tell me about Ceha Europe and the projects you do?
A: Ceha Europe is part of a Turkish parent company with almost 1000 employees worldwide. We are the European subsidiary company. We have been based in the Netherlands for 10 years now, with sales mainly in the Benelux and also in England and Germany. I am the manager of the Dutch branch.

Q: And what kind of projects do you mainly do?
A: Especially when we talk about Digilock, we talk about locker projects. Locker cabinets in which we put Digilock locks we have been doing for about 3.5 years now and that is going very well.

Q: So, have you been working with Digilock for 3.5 years, or did that come about later?
A: Yes, we have been working intensively with Digilock for 3.5 years now. I have been working at Ceha Europe for more than 4 years now. When Geert van Dijk started working at Digilock, we started talking about a partnership and that has been going very well for the last few years. We do nice projects and have a small stock of the locks that we install here ourselves.

Q: How nice to hear. Does this also mean that you have good experiences with Digilock?
A: Yes, it's going very well overall, it's a very nice group of people. I also think that partnerships should suit one another, focused on the people and the culture. That has been our experience.

Q: So nice to hear it’s a good match. You mentioned earlier the projects Ceha Europe did with Digilock. Do you have a good example of this?
A: Yes, recently we did a very large project in Belgium for the Hasselt Police Office. Every week we have projects of 40 or 50 Digilock locks. 

Pictures of these projects can be found at the bottom of the interview. Received from Hans Schippers - Ceha Europe.
