OpenTech Alliance President & CEO Robert Chiti Presents MiniCo Webinar on Renting Self-Storage Units Online

PHOENIX, ARIZ. – Online unit rental is a growing trend in the self-storage industry. On May 2, 2012, Robert A. Chiti, President and CEO of OpenTech Alliance, Inc., will present the free webinar Renting Units Online: Is It For You? for self-storage business owners, operators and managers. OpenTech has been helping self-storage operators rent units without manager assistance for many years via the company’s self-service kiosks. Mr. Chiti asserts that renting units online is very similar and presents many of the same operations issues as renting units through a kiosk. During the webinar, he will explain how the company’s INSOMNIAC Online rents units and what issues need to be considered when renting online. Topics will include the following:

  • Fraud Prevention
  • Real-Time Interface with Property Management System
  • Unit Inventory and Pricing Management
  • Different Rental Processes to Consider

OpenTech Alliance, Inc., the webinar sponsor, is the leading developer of innovative self‑storage solutions. The company’s products include self-storage kiosks, call center services and an online self-storage reservation solution.
