AUSTIN, TEXAS, August 30, 2018— storEDGE, a cutting-edge technology organization, is now part of the SpareFoot and SiteLink self-storage technology family, backed by Cove Hill Partners.
storEDGE brings a host of best-in-class products to the existing offerings of SpareFoot and SiteLink, including marketing websites, online rentals and cloud access control tools, in addition to their property management software.
The combined platform, with CEO Chuck Gordon at the helm, will continue to support and invest in all three products and organizations, working to develop new top-notch solutions and more seamless integrations so storage operators can operate more effectively. Dan Miller will remain as President of storEDGE.
“Our goal is to build an all-inclusive technology solution for storage operators,” stated CEO Chuck Gordon. “The storEDGE brand has a strong reputation and is an obvious choice to help us further realize that vision. SpareFoot, SiteLink and storEDGE will continue to work closely with our customers to solve their self-storage challenges with technology. This combination will eliminate any existing restrictions between our platforms, to the benefit of operators.”
“We are setting the standard for technology in the self-storage industry,” said Dan Miller, President of storEDGE. “We’ve always believed that self-storage solutions were disjointed. This combination provides a cohesive suite of world-class products across different categories, giving renters and operators a better and more efficient user experience. At the same time, the combined resources and backing of Cove Hill Partners provides unlimited possibilities.”
“Cove Hill Partners affirms its long-term commitment to building an enduring technology company in self-storage by helping SpareFoot and SiteLink expand their product set with storEDGE,” said Andrew Balson of Cove Hill Partners. “Operator success remains at the core of all three companies, and customers will continue to have a seat at the table as we continue innovating and building great things together.”
