Company Information

Starting small in Bombay: The early days

Adapting to the market: The flexi space model

In India, a price-sensitive market, they introduced a cost-effective flexi space model. Facilities feature floor-to-ceiling racks storing boxes, charging customers by volume instead of floor space.

Discovering Storeganise: A game changer

Meeting Storeganise at an SSA conference introduced them to the idea of leveraging both self storage and valet storage software modules offered by Storeganise. A flexible solution to support the diverse needs of their market, these included:

  • Private storage units and flexi spaces: Combining both valet storage and self storage Storeganise modules.
  • Volume-based pricing: Facilitates custom pricing plans.
  • Racking management: Efficiently tracks volume without the need for detailed inventory.
