OpenTech Alliance Presents MiniCo Webinar on Integrating Technology to Make Self Storage Facilities Ready to Rent

PHOENIX, ARIZ. – For many consumers, a self-storage facility that is fast, easy and accessible is the best bargain on the block. On October 3, 2012, Larry Rolando, Vice President of Business Development for OpenTech Alliance, Inc., will present the free webinar Tech Savvy Renters – Your Counter is No Longer the First Touch Point. OpenTech asserts that a growing number of tenants are renting units on arrival at a facility without stopping to tour the facility or comparison shop in person. As a result, the self-storage facility’s telephone and front counter are becoming the last stop in the sales process.

In this webinar, Mr. Rolando will outline the integration available between call centers, kiosks, marketing sites, facility websites, the mobile web, and the front counter. The discussion will highlight competitive advantages and strategy to position a self-storage facility to be ready to rent, when customers are ready.

Topics will include the following:

  • Make renting from your facilities easier by integrating new consumer touch points
  • Be open for business when your competitor is closed
  • Improve your facility Net Operating Income by driving more revenue

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.
