Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) October 1, 2009
Centershift, the leading Internet-based rental management software solution provider to the self storage industry, announced today that SpareFoot.com has integrated with Centershift Store™, giving Store™ clients the opportunity to accept online bookings directly through the SpareFoot.com online marketplace for self storage.
"In the same way that the airlines are using Internet gateways like Expedia.com to sell their extra seats, storage companies are able to rent their vacant units through SpareFoot.com," Terry Bagley Chief Executive and President of Centershift Inc. said.
The integration enables facilities to accept real-time bookings through SpareFoot.com. The customer's reservation information from SpareFoot.com goes directly through Centershift into the back end of the facility's booking system.
Chuck Gordon, CEO of SpareFoot.com, sees the partnership as a value-add to Store™ clients. "To the facility's benefit, the Centershift integration streamlines the process of uploading vacant units and accepting online bookings through the SpareFoot.com marketplace, Gordon said.
"It's entirely pay for performance," Gordon added. "Facilities pay nothing unless a customer shows up to rent a unit." Customers simply put down a deposit equal to 50% of one month's rent through SpareFoot, and when the customer arrives to rent their unit, facilities simply discount the unit by the amount of the deposit. There are currently no listing fees or monthly fees.
