INSOMNIAC Kiosks Plow Through Record
Facilities Across North America Report INSOMNIAC
is Open For Business
SCOTTSDALE, Arizona – February 4, 2005 – OpenTech
Alliance, Inc. today announced that despite this year’s record
setting cold fronts, rain and snowstorms, INSOMNIAC™ kiosks across
the United States continue to work flawlessly. From Southern California
to Sanford, Maine, and everywhere in between, customers at facilities with INSOMNIAC
have been greeted with “Open” signs, enabling them to rent units
and make payments 24 hours a day.
“Brutal winter weather throughout the
country, ranging from snowstorms across the mid-west and east,
to torrential rain in the west, has not impacted INSOMNIAC’s
performance,” said Robert Chiti, OpenTech’s CEO. “Forget
about sick days because facilities with INSOMNIAC are always open for business.”
Exit 2 Storage, located just west of Cleveland,
Ohio in North Olmsted, installed an INSOMNIAC 900 kiosk outside
its facility in mid-December. Regardless of multiple snowfalls
and below freezing temperatures over half the time since installation,
INSOMNIAC remains consistently on duty.

Dale Schmidt, proprietor of Exit 2 Storage,
commented, “INSOMNIAC takes
care of sales and payments, especially after-hours and on weekends, enabling
me to run our facility with only one employee and no overtime. Customers love
the kiosk and we save money.”
In Sanford, Maine temperatures dropped to -22° Fahrenheit
for several evenings in January. Customers still braved the cold
to use INSOMNIAC outside Sanford Storage Solutions. “In our
first week after installation, customers made five payments through
the kiosk,” said Sherri McLean, District Manager
of Sanford Storage Solutions. “We knew customers would enjoy the convenience
of self-service but didn’t realize how fast INSOMNIAC would catch on!”

software to work in conjunction with INSOMNIAC. Created exclusively
for the self-storage industry, INSOMNIAC is the industry’s
