DALLAS -- LAI Games reports that it has formed a new division to manufacture and market pay-per-use lockers. The new unit, called The Locker Network, offers a system enabling an operation to provide easy-to-use, secure storage for location customers while creating a new revenue stream.
These are not old-style coin lockers. They offer a variety of access-control options, including barcodes (e.g., on guest wristbands), RFID or magnetic strip media, as well as through PIN entry. Media are validated at modular touchscreen payment kiosks offering a simple user interface and multilingual voice prompts. The lockers are compatible with a variety of card systems, including LAI's Embed.
Locker payment options and rental times are fully configurable. The system supports "floating locker" service that can enable guests to pay a one-time fee for the use of lockers at different areas within a location. Wireless remote monitoring and sophisticated cash and security tracking facilitate tight management control.
LAI Games is a unit of the Leisure and Allied Industries Group, a leader in interactive entertainment around the world for more than half a century. The company is manufacturing the lockers at its 100,000-sq.ft. factory, using an Australian design.
