Online self-storage directory StorageFront has added the Application Programming Interface (API) to its platform, giving self-storage renters the ability to book units online and facility owners the ability to change pricing and track reservations in real time. All online-reservation deposits go to the self-storage facility at no cost.
The API service is part of the package customers get with StorageFront’s MarketPro subscription. MarketPro also includes a premium listing on the self-storage directory and the ability to track phone calls and coupons.
StorageFront teamed with self-storage software providers SMD Software (SiteLink) and QuikStor to make the API available to its customers.
Self-storage operators interested in using the API feature should e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for details on setup.
Headquartered in Kansas City, Kan., StorageFront launched in 2009 to provide a Web-marketing resource to the self storage industry. A bilingual portal featuring search-by-amenity and geo-relevant sorting, StorageFront serves storage owners and renters with an advanced search engine that comprises the majority of U.S. self-storage facilities.
