Self-Storage Operators Join OpenTech Alliance's Robert Chiti for MiniCo
Webinar to Discuss the Pros and Cons of Self-Service Kiosks

PHOENIX, ARIZ. – While many people have heard about self-service kiosks in the self-storage industry, most are unfamiliar with how they actually work. On September 27, 2011, Robert A. Chiti, President and CEO of OpenTech Alliance, Inc., will be joined by a group of self-storage operators from around the country to present the free webinar The Kiosk Advantage: Self-Storage Operators Unravel Fact from Fiction. The group of presenters will share their personal experiences and explain how self-service kiosks function at their facilities. The presentation will highlight many kiosk enhancements designed to resolve manager-identified issues and include a Q&A with participants. Topics will include the following:

  • MYTH – Kiosks do not provide personal service
  • MYTH – All empty storage units must be left unlocked
  • MYTH – Consumers can make payments at the kiosk while in lien status
  • MYTH – Using a kiosk means providing 24-hour access to your property
