Union Realtime announces “3-minute setup” for its Store-Level Occupancy Network

Following up on last week’s store-level occupancy network announcement; we are excited to announce that we have removed the friction and hassle of joining the industry’s only store-level, opt-in data network. GYS Development, who has partnered with Union Realtime to provide store-level occupancy data, was instrumental in streamlining the programmatic delivery of occupancy data.

Owners control the data!

Programmatic delivery directly from the property management software ensures timely and accurate information. It also enables owners to invest as little as 3 minutes to set it up eliminating the need to consolidate data every month.

It is important to note this is an opt-in network and owners have complete control over their data. Those that opt-in to the network and remain current are able to analyze data from other owners.

“Self-storage owners have traditionally avoided sharing facility information, especially occupancy, with outside sources. I took this position for much of my 24-year career in the industry. In actuality, more harm has been done to facilities based on inaccurate or insufficient data. It is imperative to share data with Union Realtime, who can compile, and distribute it in a manner that will show the strengths and weaknesses of specific markets.

Lee Fredrick, co-founder, GYS Development

“The occupancy network continues to grow as industry participants like GYS recognize the importance of sharing occupancy,” said Cory Sylvester, principal at Union Realtime. “By creating this opt-in network, we can now enable the sharing of occupancy data with other like-minded operators.”

Operators that would like to participate in the network should reach out to Cory Sylvester for on-boarding.
