The Wild West of University Housing

Dorm 1Howdy partner. It seems like it was just a few weeks ago that they all drove off for the summer migration. Hundreds, even thousands of them, left out in a perpetual stream, destined for places far from here. Now, a great quiet has come and, like a lone tumbleweed in a silent desert, you sit and wait for the winds of change to blow once again.

Soon they will return. Just a few at first but then the massive stampede will arrive, filling your dorms and your residence halls. The students are coming and with their arrival comes new challenges and new needs that must be met. The only question left is…will you be ready?

dorm 2The Mail Storm

Just like the needs of your student residents are endless, so is the mail that they receive.  Piles of it arrive every day, waiting to be sorted and distributed. Credit card offers, holiday cards from home, and endless amounts of junk mail stack higher and higher as your residence hall team tries to mix the task of mail management with the other duties at hand. Students continue to stop by the office, asking if their mail has arrived yet. There has to be a better solution.

Dorm 3The Package Predicament

Next to the mountains of mail sits a lone package; and then another, and another. Soon the walls of the package storage room can hardly contain the growing hoard of boxes. Care packages from home, orders from Amazon, and text books (oh the endless tons of texts books) begin to drive you nuts. Even though students beg to know about the status their packages, they fail to pick them up. There has to be a better solution.

There’s a New Sherriff in Town

The time has come to stop the madness. Your time is worth more. Why are you spending hours upon hour sorting mail for students? Leave it to the experts who have been professionally trained on how to handle the mail. You will no longer have to deal with the time, the effort, or the liability.

Solving the package problem is a cinch too. PackageLog allows you to text and email your student residents that their packages have arrived. This cumbersome job that once took up to six minutes per package now only takes seconds. Students come quicker to pick up their boxes, and you get your space back. It’s a win-win scenario! The best past is that it all works on any device connected to the internet. So grab you smartphone or tablet, and put PackageLog to work at your dorm.
