G5, the provider of Digital Experience Management (DXM) software and services to the self-storage industry, has released G5 Uber Leasing, a mobile application that enables consumers to lease storage units online. The app simplifies the rental experience by allowing users to go from discovery to a fully executed lease entirely from a Web-connected device, according to a company press release.
The app features a responsive design that guides the user through a step-by-step process, calculating rent based on move-in date, online specials and relevant fees. Once the customer’s online payment is secured by Secure Socket Layer encryption, the signed lease removes the unit from a facility’s available inventory. Uber Leasing is fully customizable, allowing the storage operator to designate which units are available for rent, according to the release. The customer receives a confirmation and gate code once the transaction is complete.
“We are thrilled to offer G5 Uber Leasing as another game-changing element of the G5 DXM Marketing Cloud,” said CEO Dan Hobin. “While current online-leasing products in self-storage are cumbersome or limited, the intuitive interface of G5 Uber Leasing simplifies the leasing process and integrates seamlessly with property-management systems, allowing a customer to rent, execute a lease from a smartphone, and move into a unit without going into an office.”
Uber Leasing currently integrates with SiteLink self-storage management software. Additional platform integrations will be introduced later this year.
Founded in 2005, G5 was recently named one of the fastest growing private U.S. companies by “Inc.” magazine and listed in Deloitte LLP’s “Technology Fast 500” rankings for the fifth consecutive year. The Bend, Ore.-based company is backed by private-equity investor Volition Capital.
