January 20, 2015E-SoftSysTM, a Total Solutions Provider for the self-storage industry, announced the release of Version 4.5 of Self Storage ManagerTM, one of the leading management software programs for the self-storage industry and e-CRMTM, a fully integrated Customer Relationship Management module. The new versions of Self Storage Manager and e-CRM are developed using the latest .Net technologies with the SQL Server 2012 backend database.

The user interface of the Self Storage Manager (SSM) application has been redesigned with modern look and feel and has been fully optimized for quicker loading of the pages over the web. The new version is also compatible with all leading browsers such as IE, Safari, Firefox, Chrome and can be accessed from mobile devices such as iPads and Android tablets. Additionally, the new version of SSM incorporates EMV, Chip and Pin based credit card processing, well ahead of the scheduled deadline of October 2015 announced by major credit card issuers. Furthermore, with the incorporation of e-signature and digital storage of leases for both walk-in and online customers, storage operators can now move to a completely paperless environment.  Some other features include the RPost integration to send registered emails, integration with Text messenger module to send out payment reminders and past due SMS alerts to tenants, link to Customer Satisfaction Survey, increased security and much more.

According to Kat Shenoy, President and CEO of E-SoftSys, "The release of Version 4.5 is a further confirmation of E-SoftSys commitment to keep our software product lines updated with the latest technologies and bring technology similar to what is implemented by REITs to small, mid-size and large operators at an affordable cost. We have invested thousands of hours in the research, development, testing and certification of the new version. Being a Member of the Microsoft Partner Network, we had the additional benefit of getting advice from Microsoft technical experts during the implementation of the latest Microsoft technology in to SSM and e-CRM. We have also taken input from the SSM Product Advisory Committee consisting of several Top Operators while incorporating product enhancements. The new version is now available for storage operators in the USA and Canada and will be released to storage operators in South America, Europe, Middle-East and Asia Pacific in the second quarter of 2015."

According to Aaron Mullally, Vice President of Operations of Public Storage Canada, "We are very pleased with the various features added to the new version of Self Storage Manager. Being a fairly large multi-site operator, it is imperative that we gain instant access to some vital information across multiple sites at any given time.
