What our customers are saying

  • Over the course of a year, the OpenTech call center contributed to an increase in occupancy from 71% to 82%, an all-time high.
    Blair ValkVice President of Operations at Assured Self Storage
  • On average, our largest store is producing 12 additional rentals per month through the call center.  Other properties average about 5-7 additional rentals monthly per store, resulting in a 14% same-store sales increase in 2013. With the call center, we get more income from rentals, gain occupancy and raise rates when occupancies get higher.
    Anne BallardPresident of Marketing, Training and Developmental Services at USG
  • “INSOMNIAC takes care of sales and payments, especially after-hours and on weekends, enabling me to run our facility with only one employee and no overtime. Customers love the kiosk and we save money.”

  • “With INSOMNIAC, customers never see a ‘Closed’ sign or have to come back later. Instead, they can make payments or rent units at their convenience.”
    Phil FrenchPresident of Filco Limited, LLC.
  • “The INSOMNIAC kiosk enables our customers to pay on-site with cash, check or credit card, so we need never miss a rental.”

  • “The only reason I need to go to the facility is to collect cash from the machine, put new locks in its dispenser, or sweep out empty units.”
