What our customers are saying

  • “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 use XpressCollect because it's automated and our tenants make their payment immediately through the pay-by-phone service or click to call our office.  My managers love it, because they don’t have to waste hours doing something they hate and our conversions on collections have grown exponentially.”
    Jim MooneyDirector of Operations at Devon Self Storage
  • “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.”
    Dale SchmidtExit 2 Storage
  • “The INSOMNIAC kiosk enables our customers to pay on-site with cash, check or credit card, so we need never miss a rental.”
    Jefferson ShreveStorage Express, Martinsville, IN
  • The OpenTech Call Center has contributed to an increase in revenue of about 20%.  We see the call center as a bottom line benefit with a net effect to rentals each month, which helps us push our unit rates higher.

  • “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!”
