Today, Package Concierge, the innovator of the digital locker system for apartment buildings, announced it is helping one of the most prestigious Ivy League schools in the country manage packages for its students. The company has also appointed former Pitney Bowes College Sales Director, Lance Whitson, as its new national university sales manager.
“The addition of Lance to our team signals our commitment to delivering the highest-quality solution on the market to more industries that need it,” said Georgianna W. Oliver, founder of Package Concierge. “College campuses must implement a more efficient way to manage the influx of shipments and our digital locker system makes package management hassle-free for both students and faculty.”
Package Concierge is currently working with numerous college campuses across the country and is continuing to gain considerable momentum. The company processes 30,000 packages a day, and that number will only get bigger as shipments worldwide have increased 48 percent in just the past two years.
“University bookstores no longer sell books – everything is done online, which has resulted in colleges being overwhelmed by the process,” said Whitson. “Package Concierge delivers security, reliability and cuts down on the wait time for students, while also lowering labor expenses for the staff and schools. And with a system that is both technologically-savvy and beautifully designed, I’m particularly excited to join the innovator in the market.”
Having dedicated the majority of his career to the mailing and shipping industry, Whitson brings a proven track record for growing teams and growing market share for logistics companies. He was recently at Pitney Bowes, where he pioneered the launch of its intelligent locker offering. Previously, he served as the National Vertical Market Manager for Colleges and Universities at Neopost.
To-date, Package Concierge has managed more than 15 million package transactions nationwide, and serves over 250,000 apartment residents and students. For more information about Package Concierge and its solution, please visit packageconcierge.com.
