NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Stonehenge NYC, a leading real estate company in Manhattan headed by Ofer Yardeni, announced today that The Smart Package Room® has opened at the luxury, pre-war building 10 Downing in the heart of the West Village.
The Smart Package Room® solution uses new, advanced optical technologies developed by Position Imaging to enable simple and intuitive package handling. 10 Downing is the first building in Manhattan with The Smart Package Room®.
“We are constantly looking at tech solutions to improve our operation,” said Eyal Reggev, president of Stonehenge NYC. “We handle over 200,000 packages a year for our thousands of residents and The Smart Package Room® enables us to create a more secure and efficient process.”
After the package is delivered, this self-service automated package room uses infrared and color-processing technology to map out where the package is located from the moment it is placed and if it is moved. An alert is sent to the resident with a photo of the package and an entry pin for room access. Once inside, the unique entry pin triggers a digital map of the room, audio and laser light guidance to direct the resident to their package.
“We are very excited to add this unique resource to 10 Downing,” said Ofer Yardeni, CEO and chairman of Stonehenge NYC. “The Smart Package Room® uses cutting-edge technology that enables a better lifestyle for our residents.”
“What makes our innovative solution so desirable, especially in New York City, is that it can be put into a new or existing space with little or no construction. The technology allows for faster package handling, secure tracking, and instant delivery alerts. We are pleased to partner exclusively with an elite company in Manhattan like Stonehenge NYC to expand its service platform and increase our product footprint," said Ned Hill, CEO of Position Imaging.
