In addition, other organizations such as consulting agencies and home healthcare medical companies that often dispatch their employees to remote locations can benefit from a small but secure storage locker solution when their people are occasionally in the office for meetings, etc. The Cell Phone and Tablet Locker by Hallowell offers ample storage space for small items with the flexibility to choose padlock, keylock, or digital combination lock and can be purchased in single or triple-wide configurations allowing you to scale your locker storage solution as your organization grows.
