BLUE BELL, PA (PRWEB)
Self Storage Manager, Inc. Total Solutions Provider for the self storage industry and developer of Self Storage Manager (SSM), today announced that its customer SpareBox Storage, which implemented SSM in the fourth quarter of 2020 to remotely manage its portfolio, has grown on over 90 properties in the past year through acquisitions of self-storage properties in secondary and tertiary markets in the United States. Denver-based SpareBox Storage has ambitious plans to continue expanding its portfolio to deliver value to customers and to lead the transformation of self-storage operations.
The SpareBox team knows that self-storage can be better and offer a simpler and streamlined experience than is typical in the industry. From being available while surfing and electronically signing a rental agreement to payments and moving in and out, every touchpoint is contactless and can be conveniently done from a smartphone, computer or kiosk. With its 24/7 kiosk and web platform, SpareBox offers a better customer journey from renting to moving out. Self Storage Manager, Inc. provided the SpareBox IT team with the support they needed to rapidly develop and deploy kiosk and web-based contactless transactions, as well as an advanced business intelligence and analysis system to efficiently manage and monitor the entire portfolio.
“We are delighted to have selected Self Storage Manager as our technology partner to support our rapid expansion and fulfill our ambitious growth plans,” said Chuck James, COO of SpareBox Storage. ”
“The SSM team not only helped our IT team rapidly develop our in-house kiosk and web applications by integrating with SSM via their advanced API, they also deployed a number of improvements to their API at a rapid pace to meet our needs to fulfill the complete remote management of unmanned self-storage facilities. In addition, they have developed several advanced business intelligence templates to help us make informed decisions on strategic business matters by quickly analyzing data on current and historical performance and anticipating future trends. Last but not least, the SSM team works very closely with our other technology partners in this industry, in which the integration of third-party providers has become the norm, dealing with dealer processing, call center services, mailing services, late and lien processing, insurance services, etc. ”
Kat Shenoy, President and CEO of Self Storage Manager, Inc., said the Self Storage Manager team is excited to be part of the rapid growth of SpareBox Storage.
“We are very excited to partner with SpareBox Storage as their key technology partner and provide the SpareBox IT team with all the support they need,” said Shenoy. “As a technology leader in the self-storage industry, we offer first-class software solutions that include contactless renting and payment, lead tracking and management, Android applications and integrations with leading third-party applications.
