Storage.com, an online directory and provider of search engine optimization (SEO) packages for self-storage facilities, is now integrated with the E-SoftSys Self Storage Manager (SSM) software program. The data integration pulls available unit sizes and prices from storage facilities using SSM, allowing consumers to reserve a unit and place reservations directly into an operator’s system.
Operators using SSM will no longer have to manually change inventory and pricing on Storage.com, company officials said in a press release. “Our clients who use the Self Storage Manager system will now find it much easier to have an up-to-date online presence,” said Nick Bilava, director of sales and marketing for Storage.com.
“This partnership will make it much easier for our customers, who also do business with Storage.com, to keep their listings up-to-date and have a customer’s reservation show up on the Self Storage Manager system,” added Kat Shenoy, president and CEO of E-SoftSys.
E-SoftSys, a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner and ISO 9001:2008 certified company, provides software products for the self-storage industry, including SSM and e-CRM. The company also offers add-on modules such as the INSOMNIAC kiosk interface, online payments, online reservations and rentals, the QlikView Business Intelligence and Analytics interface, and the iPad/tablet-based Site Audit and Walk Through Application.
Storage.com was designed to help storage businesses compete more effectively in the online marketplace and allow potential customers to search for self-storage in their area, according to company officials. The website integrates with a facility’s property-management software. For those operating without such software, it offers inventory-management tools. It also delivers exclusive reservations to operators and provides an SEO package.
