Books are placed on the shelf and then automatically saved in your library management system.All items are directly available for the next customer to borrow. As a result, more than 25% of all returned books are removed on the same day.
The Outdoor Autosort can easily be integrated into existing exterior walls and allows the customer to quickly return an item. Whenever a client places an item in the mailbox, it automatically recognizes if it belongs to your library, opens its hatch, and checks the item. When it does not recognize the library element as such, the hatch remains closed.

In addition, the physical load on your staff is reduced. This reduces the risk of suffering from IHR and other health-related problems.
