PTI Security Systems, a provider of access-control and security solutions for the self-storage industry, announced an application programming interface (API) with cloud-based property-management software Self Storage Manager through its access-control software StorLogix Cloud. While desktop users can use the software through PTI’s BridgeApp integration for file-transfer processes, the addition provides StorLogix Cloud users with a cloud-to-cloud integration between the two applications that provides real-time synching, according to a press release.
Designed for large and mid-sized self-storage operators, Self Storage Manager offers features such as contactless rentals, lead tracking, payment collections, business performance and more.
“This is a highly anticipated integration, as self-storage operators will be able to realize the best of both worlds in one seamless user experience,” said Thomas Brooks, managing director of PTI Security Systems. “The combined benefits in property-management and access-control security will give self-storage operators the ability to increase their operational scale and scope with an enterprise-management solution, while simultaneously strengthening their security system.”
“Seamless integration between applications is the way of the future, and PTI’s integration with Self Storage Manager demonstrates our willingness to work with the leading technology companies in the self-storage industry to easily integrate their applications with our property-management software, so that our mutual clients are able to leverage the best-of-breed technology solutions,” said Kat Shenoy, CEO and president of Self Storage Manager Inc. “Self Storage Manager has gained significant market share in the past few years by providing multi-facility operators a comprehensive software suite, top-notch customer service and the flexibility of integrating to third-party service providers of their choice using our open API architecture.”
PTI manufactures technology-enabled security solutions. Its product line includes access-control hardware and software, wired and wireless door alarms, and mobile-access solutions. The company has installed more than 40,000 systems in 30-plus countries.
Self Storage Manager is designed to standardize and centralize operational control across all facilities, enabling corporate office and district managers to oversee operations from any location and any device, with instant access to real-time information.
