Aqualink Box Hill

Aqualink Box Hill

Aqualink Box Hill has been working with METRA Australia for approximately 2 years after the installation of new lockers in the aquatics area.  METRA lockers are in both the gym and aquatics, and also METRA locks in the gym area.

METRA Australia provided peace-of-mind in organising and processing service calls, and service staff attended the site with a minimal interruption while acting on the service call.

All services carried out thus far have been completed to a high standard, and follow-up communication is always given on what was specifically carried out at the time of the service.

Being a community service, Aqualink Box Hill ensures their facilities, equipment and services are functionally adequately at all times, and as such METRA Australia offer callout services at short notice and with quick and efficient outcomes achieved.  This ensures any downtime on lockers for Aqualink Box Hill members are kept to a minimum.

Grocer Lock

Groceries delivered to your door step

Whether you are very busy or you just want some convenience to avoid time spending for shopping groceries. Avoiding road traffic jams and big city hustle. Grocer Lock offers products as any other supermarkets. All conveniently delivered to your home or delivery to locker close by.

Customers that are not often at home, do not have time to collect the package anywhere else or just want privacy, are able to use delivery lockers service when purchasing items on-line.

Package deliveries are done by couriers which use a special “delivery” key. After each package is delivered to the locker, the courier enters the package’s identification number. Metra Server sends a XML package containing the identification number to the 3rd Party SW & DB Server which in return sends customer’s key (PIN code) and device assigns it as a locker key.

101 Miller Street is a premium grade building co-owned by Mirvac Group and TIAA CREF. The landmark tower encompasses an entire CBD block, offering occupiers exposure on a grand scale. METRA Australia installed high-quality centralised METRA Locks with three Touchscreens utilising the METRA Kiosk application.

The superb finishes have been chosen for their simplicity and durability exhibiting a classic, corporate luxury design. Within the complex there is storage for more than 170 bicycles conveniently located in the car park, with further refurbished bathrooms, showers and staff lockers nearby.

The Bike Rack METRA touchscreen can access all three areas (Bike Rack, Male Change, & Female Change), whereas the kiosks in the male and female change can only access their own area. The readers have been locked (in hardware) to the customer’s access card and won’t read common Mifare ™ cards (Opal, Miki, etc.).

The locker reservations automatically expire overnight, and coupled with a nightly automatic opening of all the lockers after the site has closed, allows for cleaning staff to come through and clear down the lockers.
