Self-Storage Data & Mapping Solutions (SSDMS), a cloud-based self-storage tracking service, is now available by subscription. Launched by data-driven marketing company Pac-Comm, the offering gives subscribers access to a database that tracks self-storage supply, facility openings, acquisitions and partnerships every 30 days.
“Real-time mapping” can be performed around any U.S. address in various distances between 0.5 and 500 miles, according to a press release. Mapping can also be drawn from an address based on five drive times ranging from three to 30 minutes.
The SSDMS system includes facility names, contact information and websites for more than 43,000 locations, the release stated. Beginning this month, data can be exported as reports in CSV or Excel formats. Competition maps can also be generated. Downloaded lists include facility websites, store hours and customer ratings.
Between August and September, SSDMS identified more than 250 new self-storage facilities across the nation, the release stated. It also recognized 65 facility closures and 680 changes to either ownership, brand or company name.
Subscriptions are available for as little as one month to several years. The service is being marketed to self-storage brokerages, investors, investment-research companies, market appraisers and operators interested in future development.
SSDMS is a division of McLean, Va.-based Pac-Comm, which specializes in “marketing-solution” programs as well as data processing, enhancement, hygiene and other data-related services.
