What our customers are saying

  • “In the month of November, the kiosk conducted more new rental transactions than I did, with the earliest transaction at 6:45 AM.”
    John BykowskiClay Street Storage, Kissimmee, FL
  • “After our initial success with our first kiosk, we ordered another five INSOMNIACs for our other Midwest facilities.”
    Jefferson ShreveStorage Express, Martinsville, IN
  • “OpenTech’s kiosk, call center service and online renting platform allow us to focus on providing superb service to our customers onsite.”
    John LeslieKentucky Avenue Self Storage
  • “On days when I have other obligations, it’s nice to know INSOMNIAC is there to greet customers. In fact, the kiosk took five rentals on a recent Saturday.”
    Beth SchroederA Place for Space
  • 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.
    Anne BallardPresident of Marketing, Training and Developmental Services at USG
  • “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.”
