November 22, 2019 – Phoenix, AZ. OpenTech Alliance, the leading developer of innovative smart-connected technology solutions for the self storage industry, announced Extra Space Storage has chosen StorageTreasures as their exclusive online auction partner. Extra Space, the second largest operator of self storage facilities in the U.S., has converted over 1,000 stores from live to online auctions to date. All facilities that switch to an online auction process in the future will do so on StorageTreasures.com.
“We have been working with the team at OpenTech for several years,” stated Brett Boot, Senior Manager of Operations at Extra Space. “We feel their technology, data analytics, investment in advertising our auctions, customer service and most importantly willingness to partner and work together on innovative programs make StorageTreasures.com the best solution for our company. While we will continue to hold live auctions in areas that make sense for us, StorageTreasures.com is our top choice for online auctions.”
With the switch to online auctions, Extra Space facilities are able to clear delinquent units faster, and recover more on delinquent rent.
“Over the past three years we have invested heavily in upgrading our technology and have worked diligently to provide added value for our customers,” stated Robert Chiti, OpenTech CEO. “We are very happy to see our commitment to Doing It Right is paying off, and the platform now brings even greater benefit for our partners.”
