OpenTech Acquires eTRACKER for Self and Mobile Storage

PHOENIX, ARIZONA – Sept. 5th, 2016 – Today, OpenTech Alliance Inc. announced they have reached an agreement with eTRACKER, LLC to acquire the eTRACKER software system for the self and mobile storage markets. eTRACKER, LLC will exit the self storage market and retain a customized version of the software to sell into the commercial real estate market. The transition is projected to be completed by the end of 2016.

eTRACKER has been available and used by self storage operators for several years. Operators have been enjoying the benefits of streamlining their operation, reducing costs, going paperless, as well as improving communications internally and externally with vendors.  The solution has a cloud based corporate module called “HQ” and a mobile app.  The system has benefits for managers, district managers, owners and even third party vendors – everyone knows what is happening at the facility without having to be there.

OpenTech will be renaming the operations management solution to StoreTracker. StoreTracker features include:

  • Property Audit
  • Incident Report Management
  • Task Management Module
  • Unit Inventory Management and Lock Checks
  • Auction Management
  • Preventative Maintenance
  • Operations Management Optimization

“We have been using eTRACKER for several months and it has made a very positive impact on our operation.  Our managers love it and use it to track and share information in ways we never thought about.  We have been a customer of OpenTech’s for many years.  We have kiosks at all our properties and trust them to handle all our incoming phone calls thru their call center.   In addition, we use their collections tool and StorageTreasures.com to handle our auctions.  So we are very happy OpenTech has picked up this product, it is a great addition to their platform of solutions,” stated Margaret Martin, EVP Property Management for Pegasus Group/Central Self Storage.

Jon Loftin, OpenTech Vice President and Product Owner said, “StoreTracker fits nicely into our IoE strategy and we plan to open it up for use by other vendors in the self storage industry.  Storage operators including managers, DMs and corporate staff will be able to use one tool to communicate with all of the vendors they use to operate their facility.  This will allow operators to track everything that is going on at a facility with one easy to use tool.”
