What our customers are saying

  • “The INSOMNIAC kiosk is the best employee I have ever had. The first day it was turned live it took three move-ins. It is truly amazing!”
    Bruce ManringDiscount Storage
  • 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
  • “Thanks to their technology, I’m looking at expanding my self-storage portfolio with properties I could not previously have operated profitably. INSOMNIAC changes the math and makes more facilities financially feasible.”
    Kim McDanielBenco Mini Storage, Cleburne, TX
  • “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.”

  • 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.
