What our customers are saying

  • INSOMNIAC kiosks make great business sense for the self-storage industry because they provide customer convenience and sales while helping reduce staffing costs.”
    Raymond E. McRaeStorage Solutions, Goodyear, AZ
  • 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
  • “In the month of November, the kiosk conducted more new rental transactions than I did, with the earliest transaction at 6:45 AM.”
    John BykowskiClay Street Storage, Kissimmee, FL
  • “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.”
    Bruce ManringDiscount Storage
  • “We love OpenTech’s kiosks because half of all of our rentals occur outside of office hours.”
