INGOT, pioneering private safe deposit locker supplier in Argentina
The origin of INGOT
Juan Piantoni, CEO of INGOT, has been a trailblazer of this kind of service in Argentina. Not only due to the pandemic, the innovator recognised the need to modernise safe deposit lockers, providing contactless facilities and looked at pioneering technological advancements to deliver a securer, more accessible, higher quality, rejuvenated service model and customer experience. The former founding partner of Hausler, established the company just 4 months after the pandemic struck and opened the first branch in Av. Corrientes 629, Buenos Aires city. Already now operating in 3 locations, the plan is to implement a further 3 regionalised facilities, that are currently under development, with more to follow.
Why choose Gunnebo?
Partnering with Gunnebo, Mr Piantoni recognised the need to engage a highly experienced, reputable company who could provide him with the necessary security and robotised technology he required to be able to offer the high end 24/7 service. INGOT’s installations ensure maximum security. Customers enter via a high security turnstile, a metal detector, several armoured doors, before identifying themselves through facial recognition. Biometric, card and pin number input are all also stages in the process before access to the safe deposit locker is allowed.
Future expansion plans
INGOT advised that they are planning to open an average of three branches per year, most of them under the automated format. Gunnebo’s SafeStore Auto system was a pre-requisite for all existing sites and will be INGOT’s solution of choice for the next facilities going forward.
