INSOMNIAC Kiosk Provides 24 Hour Convenience to Facility’s Busy Clientele

PHOENIX, Arizona – June 21, 2006 – OpenTech Alliance, Inc., announced today that Akamai Self Storage LLC and Universal Management Company have hired OpenTech’s INSOMNIAC™ self-storage kiosk to rent units and take payments at its new facility on the leeward coast of Oahu, Hawaii. INSOMNIAC will work in conjunction with the property’s resident managers to provide 24 hour convenience and quality service to the site’s busy clientele.

“Our property at Ewa Beach caters to savvy consumers that desire the best,” said Don Shepherd, President of Akamai Self Storage LLC. “Thus, we’ve taken a best-of-everything approach in creating this facility and providing amenities our tenants will appreciate. The INSOMNIAC kiosk enables our tenants to do business at their convenience 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Of course, we benefit too by never having to turn down sales or payments and being able to leave our ‘Open’ sign on permanently.”
