How to Operate a Storage Company in the Age of COVID
With Covid in effect across the country, many businesses are troubled to adapt to our new norm — including storage operations. From concerns about the health and safety of tenants to company and financial considerations, storage owners and operators have a lot on their minds. For most, any resources that make their jobs a little easier right now are a welcome relief.
At Dyezz, we’re committed to helping storage operations navigate this terrible time. We understand how important it is to maintain top-notch safety and deliver an exceptional tenant experience, so we’ve compiled a list of considerations to help you adapt your operations to meet the challenges of our modern world.
Remote computing is in the foreground because it’s sanctioning many operations to achieve company continuity during the age of Covid. As state and local entities implement mandatory lockdowns, businesses are operating in virtual office spaces. The remote is a vital resource that makes these virtual operations possible.
Cloud-based access control systems allow owners and operators to manage their storage operations from anywhere in the world. Supported by features like remote accessibility, real-time notifications, and site activity reports, storage owners and operators have constant visibility to the information they need to ensure their facilities are safe and secure, even when they aren’t physically located on-site.
Wifi Accessibility and Intelligent Locks
Storage facility security – A recent study shows that COVID can spread from contact with surfaces or objects. So, the fewer surfaces tenants need to touch, the lower the odds of transmission. By implementing a tenant-facing wifi access app, tenants can access gates and other areas of your facility without touching a keypad.
Premium safety measures are always valuable for achieving a competitive advantage in crowded local markets, but they are especially reassuring now. If tenants can access your facility from their cars by simply tapping a button on their wifi devices, it’s easier for them to practice covid and take other measures to protect their private health.
Surveillance monitoring is a primal component of robust storage safety. Without the power to visually monitor facilities and units, facility operators are flying blind — especially when covid measures make site visits terrible or impossible.
When combined with advanced analytics and intelligent cameras, high-quality surveillance solutions enable remote monitoring for site operators. The most advanced solutions can automatically detect threats, alert authorities, and operators to safety incidents in real-time.
Recent restrictions have made customers’ ability to interact with storage businesses more challenging. In many cases, client interactions are primarily happening internet as customers use company websites to research services, complete purchases, and finalize payments.
A convenient, user-friendly webpage is essential for any storage operation. More than ever, prospects and tenants require clear visibility to the services you offer. They also need the ability to rent units and pay monthly bills either internet or using your operation’s wifi app.
Storage facility security – Company owners across the country are adapting their facilities and routines to our current reality. For many businesses, this means taking extra precautions to prevent the spread of disease through surface exposure or human contact.
covid changing many storage industry activities — at least for now. If you are struggling to determine how to adapt your storage operation to accommodate covid or other considerations, reach out to a Dyezz representative and we’ll help you create a strategy that’s right for you and your tenants.
