How to Evaluate and Choose Self-Storage Management Software
With all of the property-management software on the market today, how does a self-storage operator choose the program that’s right for his business? Should you use Web-based or PC-based? What can the cloud do for you? What features will help you make decisions and maximize revenue? Do you need specific applications or reporting abilities? When choosing a management software, facility owners and managers must consider the specific needs of their operation as well as staff, budget and long-term business goals. It can be difficult to compare programs and narrow the list of choices, particularly if you’re not clear about your needs or the options available.

- Insight to today’s facility-management software programs, including popular platforms and must-have features
