The Lock Up Self Storage has gone mobile.
The Northfield, IL-based storage operator recently launched a mobile app on iTunes and Google Play that enables its tenants to keep track of unit locations and gate codes. It also allows bill payment and includes a “touch to call” feature that automatically dials a customer’s facility.
The storage operator said the app is “a perfect example of a traditional industry using modern technology to create a more accessible and seamless experience for the end user.”
The free app can be used on IPhone, iPod and Android devices. Chicago-based app developer Ethervision created the app.
“We realize that nowadays, people are required to remember innumerable codes and passwords,” Andrea Carnes, vice president of operations for The Lock Up Self Storage, said in a news release. “So, to help our customers, we had an app created that centralized all of the important aspects of their Lock Up Self Storage information.”
“Gone are the days of rifling through papers to find the gate code or the number of your self-storage unit,” Carnes added. “Now, tenants will have all of that information at their fingertips, in their mobile devices. It’s especially helpful for those unplanned trips to a Lock Up unit.”
The Lock Up Self Storage operates 30 facilities in eight states.
