OpenTech Alliance Integrates INSOMNIAC CIA Access Control to RADical Systems Software

OpenTech Alliance, the PropTech leader in self storage, is pleased to announce its integration with RADical Systems, the longtime industry leader in self storage software in the UK and Europe and owner of Space Manager, to its rapidly growing access control solution, INSOMNIAC® CIA. This integration creates a seamless experience for self storage operators and tenants, enhancing overall facility management and improving customer service.

With this integration, self storage operators in Europe can now benefit from the advanced features of CIA, such as automated tenant code retrieval and real-time inventory and access management. The integration will facilitate move-ins and move-outs, restrict access for delinquent accounts, and grant re-entry upon tenant payment. These tools will enable operators to streamline their operations and reduce administrative burdens, freeing up time to focus on other aspects of their business. Additionally, tenants will enjoy a smoother, more convenient experience when renting and accessing their storage units.

“We are thrilled to partner with RADical Systems to bring this powerful solution to the European self storage market,” said Jon Loftin, SVP of Product at OpenTech Alliance. “Our customers can now leverage the best of both worlds, combining our state-of-the-art access control technology with RADical System’s industry-leading property management software. We believe this integration will provide a new level of convenience and efficiency to both self storage operators and tenants.”

Rip Bucks, Managing Director and Founder of RADical Systems, echoed these sentiments: “We are delighted to be able to offer an integration with OpenTech Alliance to expand the choice of systems available to our customers to include the wide range of solutions offered by OpenTech.”

This integration represents a standard of service for both veteran companies and underscores their commitment to customer success. By working together, OpenTech Alliance and RADical Systems are poised to enhance the technology solutions available to the European self storage market and create new opportunities for growth and success.
