Southfield Storage was facing challenges managing their growing facilities manually. They sought to automate their invoicing, booking systems, and reduce administrative time spent managing their facilities. With a manned facility, the company needed an efficient solution to manage their increasing workload.
Southfield Storage discovered Stora at the Fedessa Conference and were immediately attracted to the easy to use, cloud-based technology, and constant addition of new features. The software's ability to link with coded gate entry and make the entire process seamless was a deciding factor in choosing Stora.
Since implementing Stora, Southfield Storage has experienced massive time savings, improved customer management, and better management information. The software's ability to display unit occupation with move-in dates and effortlessly add new storage sites has streamlined their operations.
In addition, Southfield Storage anticipates a 50% reduction in admin time when all their existing customers are fully transferred to Stora. The company has also seen improvements in their facility management, with Stora easing the process even while operating at near full capacity.
