Challenge

Opened in 2021, Amazon Fulfillment RMU1 is a logistics warehouse in Murcia, Spain. Using advanced robotic technology, the 160,000 square meter facility stocks and manages goods for the country’s southeastern population, with a focus on local small and medium enterprises’ products.

With a 24-hour operation and thousands of employees, Amazon was facing a significant challenge with the loss of 1-2 keys each month using traditional key lock boxes. This recurring issue not only posed serious security risks but also led to increased costs associated with replacing keys or changing locks. The absence of a tracking system compounded the problem, leaving the company with no means to establish accountability or to identify who was responsible for the lost keys. Additionally, it was difficult to limit access to keys for authorized staff based on functions and responsibilities. This lack of control over key access was a major concern for Amazon, as it impacted both their security and operational efficiency.

Pain Points

  • Persistent Key Loss: Loss of 1-2 keys monthly, leading to security risks and financial burden.
  • Lack of Accountability: No system in place to track key usage or identify responsible individuals for lost keys.
  • Challenging to Limit Access: Traditional lock boxes containing many keys allowed staff to access keys they were not authorized to use.

The ease of adoption was a significant factor, as the staff quickly became comfortable with Keycafe's user-friendly interface.
