SMD Software Inc., provider of SiteLink property-management software for self-storage and portable-storage operations, will host its very first User Conference on March 13, immediately preceding the Inside Self-Storage World Expo in Las Vegas. The SMD event, open to the more than 10,000 users of SiteLink software worldwide, will take place at Bally's Resort & Casino.
Following the theme “Building a Foundation From the Ground Up,” the conference will focus on SiteLink Web Edition, highlighting ways to grow profit and cut costs. Presentations, panel discussions and roundtable meetings will showcase the software's reports as well as its revenue-management and CRM (customer relationship management) functions. Demonstrations will explain how these and other tools assist self-storage operators.
The one-day event creates opportunities for SiteLink users to share ideas, network with peers, join panel discussions with industry leaders, and interact with SiteLink experts and vendors. Attendees will experience how the latest information and innovations in technology transform self-storage operations and result in improved productivity and profitability.
