Technology Highlight: The INSOMNIAC Self-Storage Kiosk
Tools of automation are receiving greater attention in the changing self-storage landscape, with facility operators eager to embrace technological tools that will streamline their businesses and help them generate greater revenue. A popular attraction in the tech segment of the storage biz is the kiosk, such as this INSOMNIAC unit produced by OpenTech Alliance Inc. Self-storage kiosks, which come in many models and a range of price points, allow consumers to rent units, make payments and manage their accounts, even when the facility is closed or the manager is busy helping other customers. In addition to exhibiting at the show, OpenTech participated in the Technology Marketplace, teaching attendees about the features and benefits of kiosks.
