The number of self-storage operators who are relying on some form of automated technology in their business appears to be increasing. OpenTech Alliance Inc., a Phoenix-based provider of self-storage kiosks, call-center services and other technology, has reported the number of kiosks sold last year increased 53 percent over 2013 figures. Company revenue from INSOMNIAC kiosk sales and related services topped $4 million last year, company officials said in a press release.
Storage facilities around the country are increasingly using onsite kiosks because consumers are embracing them with no hesitation. Today’s high-tech society has been trained to help themselves through the use of all the technology they come into contact with every day.”
