INSOMNIAC Self-Service Kiosk Available for Centershift STORE™ Facilities

SCOTTSDALE, Arizona – December 22, 2003 – OpenTech Alliance, Inc. announced today that Centershift, Inc., has joined its Alliance Partner Program. Teams from both companies are working together to ensure all of the latest features found in Centershift's STORE product can be leveraged through INSOMNIAC™, the self-service kiosk for self-storage facilities.

“Now for the first time hundreds of self-storage owners, who manage their facilities using Centershift’s unique web-based rental management and point-of-sale software, have the option to purchase a self-service kiosk solution and begin taking new rentals regardless of whether a manager is onsite,” said Robert Chiti, OpenTech’s CEO.

Terry Bagley, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Centershift added, “With the combination of INSOMNIAC and STORE, not only do you have a powerful way of managing your self-storage business, but now you also have a powerful new way to promote and take rentals 24-hours a day, while leveraging the power of a web-based centralized solution.”

Centershift's STORE product provides a web-based rental management and point-of-sale (POS) software solution for the self-storage industry. STORE provides owner/operators with better control of their business assets, improved efficiency at self-storage facilities and the corporate office, opportunities for increased profitability, and robust information security.

INSOMNIAC is an integrated self-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, schedule a move out, purchase tenant insurance, view a video presentation about the facility and much more.
