PTI Security Systems, a provider of access-control and security solutions for the self-storage industry, has redeveloped its EasyCode mobile app, which allows self-storage renters to open a facility’s gates and doors using a mobile device. The technology also enables users to view their access history, get notified of alarms and access activity, and choose up to four favorite access points.
The latest version includes one-click door, gate and elevator entry and exit; one-click access to a renter’s access code; and one-click payment links to the operator’s mobile-friendly website. It also features an improved renter sign-up and onboarding process, according to a PTI press release.
“During our beta testing with the first-generation EasyCode app, we saw such high demand for this technology that we knew we had to pursue it,” said Jeff Flowers, chief operations officer. “Our customers asked for all the features that the second-generation app provides, and we’re thrilled to deliver this technology to our industry.”
The technology is fully integrated with PTI door alarms and compatible electronic locks. Multi-unit and -facility renters can use one account to view and store all access data. Operators can also customize the app and add a logo.
“Providing our customers with industry-leading security solutions and new technology is our No. 1 priority, and the all-new EasyCode app is the first of many innovative solutions we will bring to the industry this year,” said CEO Franklin Young. “Everything we’re developing at PTI began with one simple goal—to help our customers create a world-class experience for their renters.”
Inside Self-Storage (ISS) and PTI Security Systems released a case study on the mobile app earlier this year. The free, downloadable publication details how EasyCode helped SpaceMax Storage of Stone Mountain, Ga., increase customer convenience and property value. It also shows examples of three return-on-investment scenarios for using the app. The PDF can be downloaded from the Whitepapers page of the ISS Resource Center.
