The Storage Group (TSG), an Internet-marketing company that serves the self-storage industry, has added SureScan ID verification to its ClickandStor online-rental tool. The new service is designed to improve the contact-free move-in experience by allowing operators to verify a customer’s identify before an online rental is finalized, according to a press release.
During the rental process, self-storage renters will upload images of their valid driver’s license along with a recent photo of themselves. The system compares the photo against the license, which it checks against a national database. Once the ID is validated, the online rental is processed, the release stated.
“The safety of our facilities and their tenants is extremely important to us,” said Steve Lucas, CEO. “We want to provide a safe way for storage facilities to verify their tenants’ identification beyond a simple scanned ID when reserving a unit. Adding a biometric security feature to the contactless rentals process gives [operators] reassurance, knowing who their tenants are and that no misinformation has been provided.”
Based in Altamonte Springs, Fla., TSG provides online tools and marketing solutions including local-listing management, mobile websites, online rentals, pay-per-click advertising, search engine optimization, social media marketing, and software and website development.
