SMD Software Inc., provider of SiteLink property-management software for self-storage and portable-storage operations, recently participated in the Brazilian Self Storage Group's inaugural industry tradeshow and is actively working to expand its presence in Central and South America. SMD was the main sponsor at Expo 2013, which took place in São Paulo, Brazil, in early November.
As part of the event, the company demonstrated the Portuguese and Spanish versions of its software, complete with regional settings, the Boleto payment system and tax laws, to more than 250 attendees, according to a company press release. Existing SiteLink users from countries including Brazil, Chile, Mexico, Panama and Uruguay visited extensively with SMD's representative.
“With more than 11,000 installations worldwide, SiteLink understands the needs of self-storage operators outside of the United States,” said Markus Hecker, chief operating officer. “SiteLink is a natural fit for operators around the world because it works with local settings, time zones, tax systems and laws. Our extended customer-service hours and multi-lingual, in-house support staff has been able to support clients everywhere."
SiteLink is positioned to expand its international presence, according to the release. “Our global community of self-storage operators is an important part of our growth,” Hecker said.
Established in 1996, SiteLink has more than 11,000 installations worldwide. The software includes enterprise-level features including revenue management, built-in CRM (customer relationship management), e-mail and text messaging. Regular, automatic updates deliver integrations with technology partners like RPOST, INSOMNIAC and DocuSign. Web Edition also integrates with platforms like smart phones, websites, call centers, marketing services and central mail providers at no additional charge.
