Michael Bishop, a self-storage consultant and technology specialist, is offering a webinar and e-book to guide self-storage owners and managers through the process of selecting a facility-management software suitable for their company.
Users will learn how to match their business processes with the functions and features of a software application, how to save time and money through software, and how to ease managers’ workflow. They’ll also gain an understanding of standalone vs. Web-based software, how software protects tenant data, and other issues critical to the decision-making process.
Bishop is currently accepting pre-orders for the 35-page e-book, titled “Considerations in Selecting the Right Management Software.” Scheduled for release in late January, it can be purchased for $35 by itself or in a package with other offerings.
The one-hour live webinar will take place on Feb. 10, 10:30 a.m. MT. Registration is limited and will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.
Webinar reservations and book purchases can made at http://storageland.net. Ten percent of all sales will be donated to Charity: Water, a non-profit organization that works to bring clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations
In a press release, Bishop wrote that he does not represent or serve as a distributor of any management software, and all material will be presented with an unbiased approach. No particular brand or company name will be mentioned in the webinar or e-book.
Bishop has worked in the self-storage industry for six years, managing a portfolio of 14 properties and offering consulting services to facility owners and managers. In his new products, he has paired his prior technical expertise in computer systems and software with his understanding of daily self-storage operations.
