New Facility Leverages the Integrated Power of PTI TaskMaster and INSOMNIAC
SCOTTSDALE, Arizona – November 9, 2004 – OpenTech
Alliance, Inc. today announced that FILCO LIMITED, LLC, has selected
OpenTech’s INSOMNIAC™ self-storage kiosk for its
new Indianapolis facility. FILCO’s facility, slated to open in November
and operating under the name Rhino Self Storage, is leveraging the integrated
power of PTI’s TaskMaster Management Software™ and INSOMNIAC to enable
customers to rent units, make payments, purchase locks, and update their accounts
24 hours a day.
“We’re really interested in the idea of unattended,
self-storage operations,” said Phil French, President of
FILCO LIMITED, LLC. “With INSOMNIAC, customers never see
a ‘Closed’ sign or have to come back later. Instead,
they can make payments or rent units at their convenience.”
“Rhino Self Storage is a great example of the future of
self-storage,” said Robert Chiti, OpenTech’s President
and CEO. “By leveraging technology and Alliance Partners,
FILCO has created a facility where it is easier for customers to
do business on their terms, and the technology takes care of the
details including inventory and bookkeeping.”
Rhino Self Storage is the newest facility
to empower customers to “help themselves”. The brand new Indianapolis facility
features an INSOMNIAC 900 kiosk at the building’s front entrance
to assist customers with transactions. Working interactively with
the facility’s TaskMaster Management Software, the kiosk
knows current account balances and inventory, and automatically
captures all customer information including billing information,
driver’s license number, fingerprint, signature, and digital
The facility is also using PTI’s new
webXpress module, which turns Taskmaster into a web site allowing
customers to rent units, pay bills, and view their customer information
Created exclusively for the self-storage industry,
INSOMNIAC is the industry’s first vendor neutral, full-service
kiosk fully supporting PTI TaskMaster and other management programs.
