Partner Provides Credit Card and Check Processing for INSOMNIAC Customers

PHOENIX, Arizona – July14, 2006 – OpenTech Alliance, Inc., the makers of INSOMNIAC™ self-storage kiosks, announced today that it has formalized its partnership with C&A Solutions, LLC of Round Rock, Texas. As the latest company to join OpenTech’s Alliance Partner Program, C&A Solutions, LLC provides credit card and check processing for INSOMNIAC customers in the United States needing these services. By formalizing the partnership between the two companies, self-storage facility owners can be assured of a robust interface between C&A’s payment gateway and INSOMNIAC kiosks as well as a long-term commitment between the two companies to provide seamless technology solutions.

“We’re excited to formalize our partnership with C&A Solutions, LLC,” said Curtis Sojka, Vice President of Marketing for OpenTech. “Over the last 3 years, many INSOMNIAC customers have relied upon C&A Solutions, LLC and their president, Claudia Miller, to handle their credit card transactions and check processing. During this time, we have only heard great things from our customers about their interaction with Claudia and her company.”

“It is amazing to see the cost savings, extra sales, and added customer convenience installing an INSOMNIAC kiosk enables,” said Claudia Miller, President of C&A Solutions, LLC. “We help out in this process by putting owners in charge of when they get paid through our wide range of electronic payment services. We can create a custom solution for each facility that doesn’t require sites to have a credit card machine and can do recurring monthly payments. It also eliminates the risk of storing cardholder data at the facility by storing reoccurring monthly transactions in our encrypted, offsite database.”

C&A Solutions, LLC offers a full suite of electronic payment solutions including a virtual terminal payment gateway featuring side-by-side ACH/credit card processing for recurring or one-time payments. Other services include automatic bank drafts, credit/debit card services, online payments including checks and credit cards, point of sale electronic check conversion, phone checks, accounts receivable check (ARC) conversion, and electronic NSF recovery.
