  • Software Showcase

    Hi All,

    ISS is planning a software showcase for our March print issue and I'm seeking operator input. We'd like to know about your favorite features, advice for choosing software and more. If you'd like to participate, please let me know via PM or email and I'll send the questions to you. You will need to add your name and the facility name to participate. Thanks!

    Still seeking operator input on this. The questions are pretty easy: features you like, what would you change, etc. Send me a PM to participate!

        I will start out.
        • Official company name: DAK Self Storage
        • Self-storage operating name (if different from above):
        • Number of facilities operated by the company: One, Was two but sold 2nd
        • Facility location(s): Leesport, PA
        • What management software do you use at your company? QuikStor
        • What aspects of the software do you like the most? Back in 1998 we purchased the above software to help run the facility while we were running our House Painting company. We went to the Vegas trade show and decided that QuikStor was the right match.
        • What aspects of the software do you find most frustrating? The bugs have been worked out since 1998 Beta program. The software and hardware seems to be rock solid now.
        • If you could add one feature to your software, what would it be? 1. Electronic signature of lease and a Chip card reader that also accepts mobile phone payments. 2. Discounts should show on receipt

            A lot of great ideas. I will give you my thoughts and opinions but each faciltity is unique and each location presents its own positives and negatives.

            If you have no advertising budget or very little, I would start with the following.

            Do the market research for your zip code...

            spidey senses, gotta love them... in our area anytime someone inquires about "smallest unit" and "access hours" we are on guard.. I had one the other day who wanted the smallest then asked if we accept checks after refusing to say what she's storing other than "boxes"....

            I won't blow unless I absolutely have to. I prefer broom and dustpan. As far a "hacks", I'll get the extension cords out and a shopvac on the roofs when its time to clean gutters of leafs, dusting doors are super quick if you get a California king duster from wally world in the auto section....
