Omaha, NE (PRWEB) July 26, 2012
Storage.com, an online leader in the self-storage industry, has launched a Spanish version of its mobile self storage website. When Storage.com created a mobile website for its users, it took a giant step to provide better self-storage information to more customers when they needed it. This enhancement to the existing Storage.com mobile website is yet another step in opening the doors to an easy to use self-storage website to an even greater audience.
For years, mobile web was only available to English-speaking people, causing a barrier for cultures that dominantly speak a different language. Next to English, Spanish is one of the most popular communicative languages in the United States. As mobile web usage increases, Spanish communication via mobile web will become more prevalent and Storage.com wants to be on the front end of this change.
Storage.com acknowledges the common communication obstacles facing people with Spanish as their primary language. The Storage.com Spanish version mobile website will help Spanish-speaking people navigate around the site’s different storage information and rental options.
When users first open the Storage.com mobile website on their mobile devices, the homepage will be displayed in English unless the site can accuractly detect Spanish as the default language of the device and will then default to the Spanish version. In the top right corner of the homepage, Storage.com will include a dropdown box allowing users to change the mobile website language from “English” to “Español” (Spanish). Upon choosing the “Español” option, the Storage.com mobile website will reload to a similarly-formatted Spanish translated mobile web page. If users want to change the website language to English, the dropdown box remains in the top right corner of the page.
Storage.com is part of the USstoragesearch.com Self Storage Network of websites. USstoragesearch.com is the largest self-storage website and powers storage facility listings and reservations on more than 3,000 partner websites. “This is a first for a USstoragesearch.com partner, which isn’t surprising as the Storage.com team is constantly pushing this industry’s technology forward,” said Mike Jones, Vice President of Operations for USstoragesearch.com. “This will be a huge boost for the self-storage facilities participating in the USstoragesearch.com Self Storage Network and provide those facilities with a real competitive advantage.”
The focus of Storage.com is to provide customers, English- or Spanish-speaking, with detailed information to simplify the storage process. This new service will be beneficial to Storage.com and customers of Storage.com. This endeavor will open Storage.com to a wider variety of customers from various cultures, and provide site users better access to all Storage.com and facility features.
Storage.com is a self-storage lead generation website owned by Self Storage Co., LLC, a Utah corporation. In August 2010, Storage.com entered into a network partnership agreement with US Storage Search, Inc. to co-develop and co-market self-storage listings on Storage.com. Storage.com allows potential self-storage customers the ability to find a self-storage solution that best fits their needs in a simple, unbiased and relevant online format.
