Inside Self-Storage (ISS) and VaultDrop LLC have released a new publication titled, “Case Study: Total Storage, The Profitability of Providing 'Cloud Storage' With Every Rental.” The free downloadable PDF explores how self-storage operators can improve occupancy and revenue by offering their customers cloud storage as an added amenity. Customers can use the cloud storage to store and share documents, music, photos and videos. They’ll also be able to receive their self-storage invoices and other information.
The study explains how offering free cloud storage can help a self-storage facility distinguish itself in a busy market. It includes details about program implementation at 10 Right Move Self Storage facilities in Texas.
This and other case studies can be downloaded from the Whitepapers page of the ISS Resource Center. Additional information about Right Move’s program can be found in a recent video titled, “ISS News Desk: Cloud Storage Opportunities for Self-Storage Operators,” which was published on the ISS video portal, Self-Storage TV, last month.
VaultDrop shared its cloud-storage concept during a Vendor Presentation at the Inside Self-Storage World Expo in Las Vegas this week. The session, “The Next Great Ancillary Product: Cloud Data Storage,” took place on Wednesday and was open to all registered attendees and exhibitors. The company also offered one year of free unlimited cloud storage to all event attendees. Registrants received a sign-up link in their show confirmation e-mail.
Launched in 2016, VaultDrop offers secure, unlimited cloud storage. Accounts are encrypted with contents divided and stored across multiple independently operated servers.
Founded in 2013, Right Move is a real estate firm specializing in the acquisition, development, management and operation of self-storage facilities. It manages storage properties in California, Louisiana and Texas.
For more than 25 years, ISS has provided informational resources for the self-storage industry. Its educational offerings include ISS magazine, the annual ISS World Expo, an extensive website, the ISS Store, and Self-Storage Talk, the industry’s largest online community.
