We are the Technology Leader for physical Object Sharing Automation that makes transfer and sharing more sustainable, convenient and profitable.
The transfer station can be used to hand over and receive packages, tool boxes and other items. When used with thingk.systems smart.toolcases the station can offer additional functions (identification of toolcase and bi-directional communication, additional mechanical interlock, etc.).
Can be reached quickly by many people. Locations in densely populated areas and transport hubs are ideal. Since special restrictions apply in public places, space is limited and expensive, and special protection against vandalism and theft is required, thingk.systems has developed various innovative solutions that offer significant advantages not only for sharing stations but also for other applications.
The station is assembled from various modules and can thus be adapted to local conditions and also expanded later on.
The thingk.systems stations are optimised for toolcases with a footprint of 40x30 cm.
Therefore compared to conventional transfer machines, thingk.systems stations can store up to three times as many tools in the same space. This means that prime locations can be used very cost-effectively.
An integrated vending machine can sell various items and accessories (e.g. consumables for tools) Users can purchase these via the app and have them dispensed at the station.
The system is continuously updated. New module types, half-height stations, mobile stations, energy self-sufficient stations, weather and vandalism protection are only few of the upcoming features.
The basis of the modularity and high space efficiency are the smart.toolcases - system cases, with our integrated electronics. A variety of features can be added, depending on the application (lid lock, environment lock, various sensing and communication devices), thus they can be used for many use-cases and business models. Examples include anti-tampering or anti-theft protection, management of tools and IT technology within companies or on construction sites, monitoring of sensitive content, authentication and authorization for transport or access, geofencing or automated rental. Contact us if you require special functionality. We can adapt the smart.toolcases to your requirements.
With the same footprint and 8 different heights, our system cases can protect and transport objects of different sizes, can be stacked and connected together.
Since external electrical contacts are often a weak point and source of errors, we use wireless charging as power supply.
The electronics integrated in the case can automatically check the presence of specific objects within the case and report this to the system.
smart.toolcase can be equipped with more abilities for your use-case: sensors for content monitoring, live data connection: bluetooth / WLAN / LoRaWAN, GPS, container lock, display, RFID Reader,..
Our software connects us with stations, cases and customers. Users can handle all processes from registration to invoice download themselves via a simple and intuitive interface. Via an more complex and powerful administrative dashboard, we or system operators can manage booking data, stations and cases, control the hardware, execute maintenance and manage customer support.
Our software is browser-based and therefore platform-independent.
The future is appless. Our browser app is OS-independent and needs no installation. This enables live updates and ensures that everybody always uses the most recent software version.
We developed a web interface for toolbot that behaves like a native mobile app and provides all the necessary functionality to our users.
The admin dashboard is a flexible, modular front-end system that we can easily customize and evolve to manage your individual business processes.
An integrated support system with access to user data gives you or us the opportunity to take care of your customers directly. By phone messenger or mail. Depending on your wishes, we regulate user rights and data access.
Would you rather use your own front-end, develop an app or integrate it? You get REST and GraphQL interfaces from us - standardized and customized
We automated cashless payment, automated payment reminders, collection and accounting processes and integrated them into our support system.
