Ho, ho, ho and happy holidays! Last year we celebrated the season with 12 days of surprises for our storEDGE clients, and this year we’re bringing you another 12 days of storEDGE presents! From December 6 through the 21st, we’ll be surprising our customers with 12 of their most-asked-for features and technology improvements, and sprinkling in some fun holiday stocking stuffers.
The elves in the storEDGE workshop have been listening to all of your needs and wants again this year, no matter how large or small, and we’re sure you’ll love our 12 days of merry gift-giving, including special offers and time-saving improvements you’ve been asking for. We’ll be updating this blog post every day during this year’s 12 days of storEDGE with information on new features, updates, and tools - so be sure to follow along! Click on the links in the song below to read more details about each day’s gift.
We’ve improved our interactive facility map feature to work better, faster, and more intuitively. Our latest improvements to the facility map have enhanced the loading speed of the map for rapid-fast use and added a new way to filter your units. Now, you can filter your facility map by Scheduled Move-outs to see at a glance which of your tenants are scheduled to move out soon and which units will soon be vacant. This way, when you’re doing a move-in over the phone, your managers will have an ultra-fast new view of which units will soon be unoccupied and available to rent.
If you love our easy-to-use in-software promotions tools, you’ll love our new controls! In addition to other advanced promo controls like unit type, amenities, and size that make creating offers and promotions for hard-to-fill units easier, you can now select “floor” as a control for your promotions. Having a hard time getting renters into your third floor units? Create specific offers and promotions for units on certain floors of your multi-level facility and display them on your website effortlessly with this update.
To keep your data secure, the storEDGE software automatically logs you out when you’re away from your computer so prying eyes can’t sneak a peek at private business information. Now, you can customize your software’s automatic logout timing to be shorter or longer to fit your unique needs. Simply specify how many minutes of inactivity you’d like to allow, and your software will automatically log you out after you’re away from your desk for that amount of time. Then when you get back, you’ll be prompted to re-enter your password before picking up where you left off.
We’ve made our cloud access control tools even more robust with three exciting improvements! First, you can now filter a tenant’s history by “gate activity” to see their full access history log right from the tenant profile. This new view allows you to see all of their attempts to get into your facility, gain insight into their visit schedule, and more accurately predict move-outs. Second, we’ve added the ability to quickly text a gate code to a forgetful tenant by clicking “Text Code to Tenant” in the Gate Access tab of their tenant profile. With this SMS tool, it’s easier than ever to shoot a message to a tenant who texts in asking for their code. And finally, we’ve added functionality that allows storEDGE Cloud Access Control to accept key fobs or access cards. Whatever your access preference is, we’re sure to have it, with pass badges, leather key fobs, and even wristbands.
