INSOMNIAC Kiosk Now Available for Syrasoft Facilities

Syrasoft is Latest Addition to OpenTech Alliance Partner Program

SCOTTSDALE, Arizona – May 19, 2004 – OpenTech Alliance, Inc. announced today that INSOMNIAC™, the full-service kiosk for self-storage facilities, is now available for facilities running Syrasoft’s Storage Management System. The company also announced that Syrasoft, LLC is the latest addition to its Alliance Partner Program.

The powerful combination of INSOMNIAC and Syrasoft’s Storage Management System means facilities can now take rentals and payments regardless of whether a manager is present onsite. Because the two technologies are linked in real-time, account balances and inventory are updated instantaneously, ensuring accurate financial and operational reporting.

“Together with Syrasoft, we’re making it simple for self-storage facilities to implement a full-service kiosk solution,” said Robert Chiti, OpenTech’s CEO. “We’ve taken all of the hassles out of integrating various technologies and created an industrial strength solution that will help facilities rent more units.”

“We’re excited the INSOMNIAC kiosk is now available for Syrasoft facilities,” said Tom Garden, President of Syrasoft. “Using the two technologies together, facilities can decrease operating costs and increase profits. We really see this as the future of self-storage.”

Syrasoft’s Storage Management System for Windows has been shipping since 1997 and now services over 2000 facilities in all 50 states, Canada, and Puerto Rico. The software helps self-storage facilities with all aspects of running their business including saving valuable time with fully automated contracts, letters, notices, billing, invoicing, late charges, late notices, and automatic credit card processing. It also helps increase profits through the use of facility analyzing reports, enabling users to see where their facility is gaining profits and where they can improve.

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.
