I chose stora as my self-storage management software for my start up. Best decision I've made. The support is incredible, and very necessary for me, being new to the market. Stora walk the walk, using the software themselves to manage storage facilities, hence they know what they are talking about are on the same page as me as a customer.

PROS

Easy to use, all the features I need excellent integration with other software

CONS

A pictorial view of my facility would be a great feature, to see at a glance what units are available or occupied.

Reason for choosing Stora

Simpler yet more advanced than competitors. Stora definitely has an eye on the future.

Vendor Response

Thank you for your kind words Karl. We take all feedback seriously and use it to inform future product releases so your insight is very important to us!

PROS

Stora is a great platform for newcomers to the self storage industry. In a nutshell it is the quickest and easiest way to get your self storage business up and running given that it includes a website and booking system. Most other software options would require separate websites and booking system integrations at significant cost.

CONS

There are a number of features missing that are available on other platforms but Stora is launching new features on a regular basis. Reporting could also be better to give a more detailed view of the business operations.

Reason for choosing Stora

Stora promised a quick and easy way to provide an online booking system for our client's startup. Stora also went out of their way to integrate our chosen access control system.

Vendor Response

Thank you for your kind words Anthony, we're delighted to have you on board. New features were released yesterday and more to come in the new year!

PROS

Stora was less expensive than many competitors and super easy to use!

CONS

Felt that reporting and use was limited, missing options that larger software products provide and are essential for multi-property investors.

Reasons for switching to Stora

Pricing and to have a more current, easy to use software

Vendor Response

Hey Tessa, thanks for your feedback. As the newest entrant to the Self Storage Software market, we have lacked some of the features multi-property operators have come to expect from the tools they're typically used to. The good news is we've been hard at work on these. We've already launched our Facility Maps product, and are well underway with what we believe will be the most advanced Reporting tool in the industry. We'd love the opportunity to show it to you when it's ready :)

PROS

Plug and play, We are a new business and wanted to be up and running with a website and online booking system from day 1. Within 24 hours we were live and able to taker online booking from customers. The back end is second to none and what yo would want from a modern online store. They are aware of the limitations of the front end and have a pathway of continuous improvement that will address some fog the short falls. There is a constant flow of new features being deployed which give us more and more functionality, feels like we are backing the right business for the future by being on board with Stora.

CONS

The front end is work in progress and at the stage has its limitations. That said, we did not have the time to write our own website and then integrate the Stora back end so it was great for us. In addition, it is a highly SEO efficient website so that is a big plus when google searches are a big part of the source of customers.

Vendor Response

Hi Roger, thank you for your feedback. Our customers help us create the future of Stora so your insights here will help us fine tune the front end and other enhancements coming down the track.

Working with Stora is great. The software is robust and the help and support is second to none. Stora has a solid roadmap and actively listens to the concerns and needs of it's customer like no other platform provider out there.

PROS

The ease with which it can be set up and implemented. If I ever have a query or question, they respond straightaway with a solution.

CONS

It needs to be more intergrated with the Noke system. It would be great if it were a one-stop-shop plarform, so that payments, access control, accounting modules were available.

Vendor Response

Many thanks for the feedback Jonathan. Delighted that you've had such a positive experience. We're committed to making stora a one-stop-shop as you say, so keep an eye on the roadmap to see what's coming and add some new suggestions!

Stora has been a game changer for us in the management of our storage facilities. The huge benefit is the facility to see occupancy and also the massive time savings in administration.

PROS

We started using Stora after meeting [SENSITIVE CONTENT] at the Fedessa trade show in September. Easy to use, good management information, and [SENSITIVE CONTENT has, and continues to, guide us through every step.

CONS

The deposit function will be great when it is up and running on Stora.

Vendor Response

Thank you for your review Deborah, we are delighted things are going so well for you. We have some great new features on their way to you in the next few weeks - keep an eye on our social channels for updates!

Additional self storage functionality, charging customers weekly, charging for a storage deposit.
