Self Storage Technology Whitepaper

Every day, OpenTech connects thousands of tenants with storage companies around the world. With over 4,000 daily transactions, the company’s automated products and services helped Storage Managers move-in over 145,000 tenants in 2017, generating over 190 million dollars in new sales revenue alone.

The Self Storage Technology White Paper provides objective and transparent data on kiosk, call center and online performance that is exclusive to the INSOMNIAC self-service platform. OpenTech has released this technical paper as a means of educating the industry on how remote technology can impact not only profits but the customer expe­rience as well.

What our customers are saying

  • “With INSOMNIAC, customers never see a ‘Closed’ sign or have to come back later. Instead, they can make payments or rent units at their convenience.”
    Phil FrenchPresident of Filco Limited, LLC.
  • 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
  • “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
  • “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
  • Over the course of a year, the OpenTech call center contributed to an increase in occupancy from 71% to 82%, an all-time high.
    Blair ValkVice President of Operations at Assured Self Storage
  • “After our initial success with our first kiosk, we ordered another five INSOMNIACs for our other Midwest facilities.”
