    Smile Hello from NC

    Hello to anybody out there reading this. My name is Tara. My owner talked me into coming to work for him in September 2010. I worked for the Dry Cleaner where he had his cleaning done. He liked my people skills and the fact that I worked 6 days a week. He hired me on as his manager with absolutely no storage experience. He is training me to take over so he can retire and only come in when he wants too. He is a bit of a control freak though. He's having trouble letting go of some of his responsibilities. We are getting ready to change our software. We use RentPlus. Currently we are shopping for new software. Has anyone recently gone through the change, or have any good reccomendations for me? Any suggestions or advice on this subject is welcome. I am talking with Storage Commander. Does anyone use these guys that could let me know about the converting over process and their customer service during and after the process. I hope to hear from someone soon.

    Hey Tara, welcome to the forum, we are currently using Domico which I really like, I have been using it since October of last year and it seems to run pretty good. Make sure you have a decent computer you are using though because it seems to take some power. We use it with our digi gate software so that Domico will automatically lock people out of the gate. It gives you all the important features, tons of reports you can run, you get a site map where you can map out your site so you can see instantly where all your empty units are, the late ones, damaged ones, company ones, etc. To many features to list. Only downside is tech support is expensive so we got the initial training and learned everything for ourselves. Good luck finding a software to switch to and hopefully he wont be a control freak forever lol.

    I look forward to becoming a part of this community. I have been surfing this site, reading the posts, and picking up information as well. I decided I should join and then I would have a place to vent and folks that could help me with my questions. It looks like a fun place to hangout and the people seem helpful and nice. Well most of them anyway!LOL

    Tara,

    Just to defend the other coast, those of us here in California are friendly and helpful, too!

    As far as help with software choices, we recently had this discussion: Looking for new software... suggestions?

    And this one: Taskmaster Conversion, which company???

    Hope that helps to answer some of your questions.

    And WELCOME TO SST.
