SMD Software Inc., producer of SiteLink facility-management software for self-storage and portable-storage operations, has expanded its existing partnership with the Storage Business Owners Alliance by allowing its software to integrate with SBOA’s tenant-insurance program and credit-card processing partner. The integration is available at no additional cost to SiteLink users.
SiteLink now integrates directly with Sage Payment Solutions’ gateway to process credit cards at self-storage locations and through facility websites. In addition, SiteLink’s built-in insurance module allows self-storage owners to set up custom plans for SBOA tenant insurance, keeping 50 percent more of the administration fees and automatically transmitting insurance-sales data to the SBOA.
Established in 1996, SMD has more than 9,000 software installations worldwide.
The SBOA enables small to mid-sized self-storage operations to enjoy the benefits of bulk buying power. The group has grown to include more than 1,000 member facilities and 30 vendor partners. Members pay an annual membership fee to save on items such as packing and moving supplies, marketing services, payroll services, UPS shipping and more.
