E-SoftSys, a provider of self-storage management software, announced it will extend its partnership with Kure It Cancer Research by donating an additional year of website design and maintenance. The company will also develop a mobile site for Kure It.
The two organizations began working together last year after Kat Shenoy, E-SoftSys president, and Barry Hoeven, founder of Kure It and owner of US Storage Centers, met through their mutual involvement in the self-storage industry. Shenoy had recently lost a brother to cancer and was impressed by Kure Its dedication to raise awareness and research dollars for underfunded cancers. Since 2007, Kure It has raised more than $1 million for research.
"Anyone who has met Barry and knows what he himself has gone through with cancer can understand why Kure It is such a special organization to support," Shenoy said. "Everyone in the self-storage industry should support worthy causes, and Kure It is one of the most efficiently run charity organizations I have come across. We will continue to support Kure It in whatever ways possible and spread the word about the cause throughout the industry."
The donation of services from E-SoftSys allows us to keep our website current and relevant, something that is out of reach for many nonprofits, said Karen Jones, Kure Its director. With the significant cost savings, we can direct more of our fundraising to cancer research.
E-SoftSys, a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner and ISO 9001:2008 certified company, provides software products for the self-storage industry, including Self Storage Manager 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.
