Industry Leaders Partner to Help Operators Rent More Units
PHOENIX, Arizona – May 26th, 2011 – OpenTech Alliance announced today SpareFoot.com is the latest internet search engine company to join their INSOMNIAC Self Storage Network (ISSN).
By joining ISSN, SpareFoot.com has expanded the number of property management systems it interfaces with in real-time and significantly reduces the amount of administrative work managers have to do to keep their inventory updated. In addition ISSN provides a unique built-in reservation to rental confirmation function that simplifies the reconciliation process.
“We’re sending so many reservations to our clients that we needed a way to simplify how we determine which tenants moved in,” said SpareFoot’s CEO Chuck Gordon. “Our partnership with OpenTech will allow us to automate this process and makes it even easier to advertise storage facilities on the SpareFoot Network.”
SpareFoot is the leading online marketplace for self storage. With more than 5,000 self storage facilities listed nationwide and more consumer traffic than all other storage aggregators combined, SpareFoot offers consumers the most complete comparison shopping experience in the storage industry while helping storage operators find new tenants – all through an entirely pay-for- performance model.
ISSN is designed to allow self storage operators to leverage the marketing efforts of third party companies with little to no effort. The real-time transactions mean managers no longer have to waste time keeping inventory and pricing updated in multiple locations. All facility and unit data is obtained from their property management system at the time of the search and when the consumer has selected their unit, the reservation/rental data is immediately stored directly into the property management system.
OpenTech’s innovative solutions increase revenues, reduce operating costs and improve customer convenience for self-storage businesses. Their solutions include 7 models of INSOMNIAC self storage kiosks ranging from $5,500 to $18,000, INSOMNIAC Live! call center services and the INSOMNIAC Self Storage Network for online storage reservations and rentals.
