OpenTech Launches Alliance Partner Program

Program Aims to Leverage Best Qualities of Each Management Software Solution

SCOTTSDALE, Arizona – November 6, 2003 – OpenTech Alliance, Inc. announced today the launch of its Alliance Partner Program for the self-storage industry. This program is a formalization of OpenTech’s core business strategy of creating mutually beneficial industry partnerships to deliver innovative and open self-service solutions.

The Alliance Partner Program provides alliance partners with license revenue, dedicated technical resources, customer referrals, marketing support and a customized interface to INSOMNIAC™ – the self-storage industry’s first and only vendor neutral self-service kiosk.

Robert Chiti, OpenTech’s CEO explained, “There are a number of great property management software solutions in the self-storage industry and our goal is to work with them all. Through the Alliance Partner Program, our development, marketing and sales teams are all aligned to build a self-service kiosk that exceeds customer expectations and that each vendor will be excited to promote as its own.”

Curtis Sojka, Vice President of Marketing for OpenTech, commented, “We’ve created a partner program that works for everyone. Facilities get to choose their favorite management software, the software vendors get license revenue for each kiosk sold, and we don’t have to create another management software product. The great thing is we’re all working together to create a self-service solution that highlights the features already found in each of the leading management software products.”

The Alliance Partner Program will be the foundation for developing future partnerships with other vendor types in the self-storage industry. OpenTech is currently working with builders, insurance providers, call centers, management companies, and industry consultants to create a similar way to leverage the unique qualities of each.

OpenTech and its partners will be announcing specifics about their collaboration in the weeks to follow.
