Using Mobile Apps For Storage Business

In today’s technology, people are now on their mobile devices most of the day up the time they fall asleep and such phenomena can be used as an advantage for businesses like self-storage in Leeds.

It is a fact that the average person spends about two to three hours a day on their mobile phones and devices. And, 85% of that time is being used for apps according to mobile analytics firm Flurry.

This means that self storage operators can actually use this as an advantage and utilize mobile apps for their businesses.


All around the world, the Facebook app is the most popular app and social medium. In the US alone, it has over 115 million users a month according to comScore, a technology research company.

What does this mean for self storage operators?

It means that they can use it to market their facilities and their business. Having social media accounts and pages on Facebook is a good way of marketing the business. There are also a lot of other social media apps that can be used for advertising. Such app is Hootsuite, which is actually an app that allows you to connect to all your other social media accounts to post simultaneously at once.


For larger self storage operators, they would pretty much have at least more than one property or several other facilities. This means that managing these properties personally and by hand is more difficult a task.

How about investing in developing an app that allows you to manage your storage business? Apps are so advanced today that you can actually use them to remotely control everything that happens in the business—from surveillance, light operation, and gate opening or closing. This kind of an app would save not only time but hassle on your part. It may mean spending money but the long run effect is beneficial for you and for the business.


Developing apps that allow customers do self-service tasks and functions would also help the business in terms of time consumption and management duties. Apps can be developed to allow people to remotely pay bills from their mobile devices or do other tasks like subscribe to announcements and other informative news from the business or the facility.

Such an app would also save time for customers, as they need not do the task themselves. What does this mean? It means that having a technologically advanced storage business would attract a lot of potential clients, customers, and investors.
