PTI Integrated Systems joins OpenTech Alliance Partner Program

INSOMNIAC Full-Service Kiosk Available for PTI TaskMaster Facilities

SCOTTSDALE, Arizona – April 15, 2004 – OpenTech Alliance, Inc. announced today that PTI Integrated Systems has joined its Alliance Partner Program. Developers from both companies are working together to ensure all of the great features found in PTI’s TaskMaster™ management software can be leveraged through INSOMNIAC™, the full-service kiosk for self-storage facilities.

“PTI is a strategic addition to our Alliance Partner Program,” said Curtis Sojka, OpenTech’s Vice President of Marketing. “We’re excited to be delivering a self-service kiosk solution with PTI that extends their impressive product line and enables TaskMaster facilities to take rentals and payments 24 hours a day regardless of whether a manager is onsite.”

“Many of our customers have been asking about kiosks,” added Gregg Sherwood of PTI. “INSOMNIAC, coupled with TaskMaster, is the ultimate kiosk solution. This combination truly enables unmanned facilities, saves operating costs and ushers in a new era in self-storage. Our customers are going to be thrilled.”

PTI’s TaskMaster management software offers a full accounts receivable software package for automating daily procedures, receiving payments, selling merchandise and providing complete and comprehensive customer records. With its state-of-the-art real-time integrated credit card processing, the facility will not need any external credit card machines. TaskMaster offers over 185 reports (with explanations) enabling users to see exactly what is going on at their facility on a daily basis. These reports can be conveniently emailed or automatically printed at the end of each day. Owners know that their facility is being managed with the most comprehensive management software available.

INSOMNIAC is an integrated full-service solution (similar to an ATM for a bank) designed specifically for the self-storage industry. The system allows tenants to rent a unit, make a payment, update their account information, purchase tenant insurance, buy locks, view a video presentation about the facility and much more.
