Over his employment tenure in the Storage industry, Jason has seen a shift in consumer demand as customer lifestyles change resulting in a greater demand for facility access, outside of traditional business hours. He has noted the dilemma for many facility owners wanting to provide their valued customers with such flexibility, but also appreciating the need to control wage costs and not compromise the security of their site, when allowing customer access during non-staffed hours.
Jason has also had first-hand exposure to evolving technology developed by Sentinel that not only provides such self storage site access control to customers and wage cost savings to the owner, but also enables individual unit alarm monitoring and notification to the facility manager of customer entry and egress ‘transactions’ and instant smart phone alerts if a unit access alarm is activated. Importantly, this software will interface with any site management software program.Read More ....
In his various site operational management roles, Jason has been impressed with the competitive price of the Sentinel product and its flexibility to allow site access in different time zones for different days. A distinct competitive point of difference for the Sentinel product is also its functionality to incorporate machine readable barcodes (QR codes) to avoid the need for storers to remember pin codes as they gain access to the site.
Sentinel’s product functionality and ease of usability, coupled with a comprehensive service and customer support capability led to Jason’s interest and ultimate action to purchase the Australasia Sentinel distribution franchise from well-known industry identity, John Poulton recently.
Jason’s entrepreneurial spirit senses bright horizons for the Sentinel product in the region. He estimates that approximately 40% of its self storage businesses have access control systems and appreciates there will be greater future demand for the product as self storage operators renovate or expand their facilities and respond to consumer demand for greater access. His extensive work experience in the self storage industry has also enabled him to rigorously road-test the Sentinel product and be confident of its application in providing desired flexibility of site access, wage cost management and owner peace of mind.
