New INSOMNIAC 500 Kiosk
New INSOMNIAC Model Provides Great Value in
a Compact Design
SCOTTSDALE, Arizona – August 11, 2004 – OpenTech
Alliance, Inc. today introduced the new INSOMNIAC™ 500 kiosk, featuring
a compact indoor/outdoor design packed with impressive performance at a value
price of $9,995. Perfect for facilities looking to collect check, cash or credit
card payments 24 hours a day, the INSOMNIAC 500 uses the same open technology
platform as OpenTech’s industry leading INSOMNIAC 900 kiosk and supports
all OpenTech Alliance Partner products.
The INSOMNIAC 500 is a workhorse with compact
design. It takes new rentals and payments, allows customers to
update their account information, offers tenant insurance, gives
virtual tours, prints leases and even dispenses locks.
Flexible installation options and a compact
design enable the INSOMNIAC 500 to fit almost anywhere. The unit
can be installed thru-the-wall, free standing or wall-mounted and
features a 15” color touch screen display housed within
a tough steel casing.
“The INSOMNIAC 500 adds to our growing
arsenal of self-service solutions designed specifically for self-storage
operators,” said Robert Chiti, OpenTech's CEO. “Our
900 model is already recognized as the ultimate self-storage kiosk.
We've added the 500 because operators of smaller facilities asked
for it. As the self-storage business changes, we expect to add
more models to our product line, each customized to fit the needs
of our customers.”
To manufacture the new 500 kiosk hardware, OpenTech
turned to SafePak Corporation, the leader in PayStation technology. “The
demand for self-service and information kiosks has been growing
steadily in every industry,” said Buzz Siler, president
of SafePak, “and our focus is building reliable hardware. We chose OpenTech
Alliance to be the exclusive distributor of our PayStations within the self-storage
industry because they have high standards, enthusiasm, and marketing savvy. They
understand the challenges in this unique industry, have earned the respect of
their clients and industry partners, and are committed to success.”
Thanks to OpenTech’s open technology platform,
INSOMNIAC kiosks work seamlessly with all Alliance Partner products
including SMD Software’s SiteLink 2004™,
Centershift, Inc.’s STORE™, Empower Software Technology’s Storage
