Webinar: How a Labor Shortage Impacts Self Storage: Building an Effective Solution

What has affected every business vertical is also affecting the self storage industry. Finding reliable team members to represent the facility is always challenging, but now facilities must contend with post-pandemic staffing shortages. The knee-jerk response is to be touchless. But this webinar will guide you through the advantages of a balanced, high tech, high touch strategy, including demonstrating other verticals succeeding from this effort. Shannon Charbonneau of XPS Solutions will discuss methods, techniques, and processes to help your facility strike that balance between high tech and high touch, driving occupancy and cap value.
