Storage Commander Software LLC, formerly known as Empower Software Technologies Inc., a provider of management software for the self-storage industry, has been acquired by Fullsteam, a holding company that purchases software and payments businesses. This is Fullsteam’s second acquisition in the self-storage software market, according to a press release. The firm also owns Domico.
“We’re thrilled to announce the acquisition of Storage Commander,” said Michael A. Lawler, CEO of Fullsteam. “Their cloud software platform is a leader in the industry, and the company is poised for substantial growth in the years to come.”
Storage Commander co-founders Tom Smith and Jeff Power will remain with the company and continue to oversee daily operation. “This is a great day for both of our companies and even more so for our software users,” said Smith, who serves as CEO. “By combining our industry experience and cloud-based software along with Fullsteam’s expertise in payments and technology, we’re in an amazing position to evolve with the changing landscape of the industry and provide new solutions to storage owners and operators.”
Based in Murrieta, Calif., Storage Commander was launched in 1998. The company’s cloud-based, standalone software allows for online reservations and payments. It also includes built-in debit, credit and electronic-check processing as well as customized billing, a reports suite and more.
Headquartered in Auburn, Ala., Fullsteam provides companies with payments infrastructure and operational support. It’s actively seeking further acquisitions across multiple software verticals, the release stated.
