PHOENIX, Arizona – February 5th, 2013 –OpenTech Alliance, Inc. introduced their latest in the line of innovative self-storage kiosks – the INSOMNIAC 570. The new INSOMNIAC 570 can be installed thru the wall or on a pedestal and comes equipped with a full line of user-friendly features. The 570 is a perfect self service solution for self storage operators that want all the bells and whistles but cannot afford the INSOMNIAC 900 model.
The 570 series is an on-site Service Center that completes new rentals, processes payments and also implements the e-lease process (paperless or print). Dynamic components allow the kiosk to stage a virtual tour of the facility and practice some fine salesmanship by consistently offering the new renter a lock & tenant insurance 100% of the time.
Packed with a punch, the 570 features a 15″ color touch screen display, digital signature capture, fingerprint scanner, 4.5″ printer, lock dispenser, VOIP phone, credit card scanner, bill acceptor, check reader and stereo speakers. The kiosk also includes a built-in video surveillance camera so facilities can record every kiosk visitor. Flexible installation options and a compact design enable the INSOMNIAC 570 to suit both indoor & outdoor environments.
“We continue to invest in innovation to help reduce the cost of our hardware so our self service solutions are within reach of every self storage operator,” said Robert Chiti, OpenTech President and CEO. “What we believe is simple; if your facility is open longer than your competitor and more convenient you will rent more units. The ultimate would be to have staff on duty 24 by 7 but as employee costs increase it is not financially practical, so we will continue to deliver new self service solutions that operate on-site, on the Internet and on whatever is next,” added Chiti.
The new INSOMNIAC 570 is offered at a base price of $13,250 or $387 on a 48 month lease.
