According to the vendor, the system is especially well-suited for distribution centers and retail stores that are increasingly relying on such devices. The self-service, cloud-based lockers automate the management of critical assets, including handheld scanners, tablets, smartphones and radio headsets. Axcess lockers automate checkout and check-in of devices through the use of personalized codes or identification cards. The Apex Trajectory Cloud, which serves as the "brains" behind each locker, records who took what, when and where. Trajectory delivers reports, usage patterns and other data. It can send an automatic notification to supervisors and employees if a scanner is past due to be returned, or if it is due for maintenance. According to Apex, the system eliminates time lost checking out and checking in the assets on each shift, as well as the time spent searching for missing devices.
