The new office in the London area will serve as the headquarters for OpenTech Alliance Europe and provide a local presence for the company’s growing customer base in the region.

William Corbett, new Director of Operations for OpenTech Alliance Europe

To lead the expansion efforts, OpenTech Alliance has appointed William Corbett as the new Director of Operations for OpenTech Alliance Europe. With extensive experience in the European self storage market, Corbett is well-positioned to help OpenTech Alliance expand its footprint in the region and provide even better service to its customers. 

“We have looked for the right opportunity to grow our European footprint since we were selected by Shurgard as their exclusive access control provider,” said Mike Connolly, Chairman and International President of OpenTech Alliance. “We are excited to work with our new Director of Operations to bring our industry-leading self storage solutions to even more customers in the region.”

Streamlining Facility Management

OpenTech Alliance’s CIA platform is a leading self storage access control solution that helps operators streamline facility management and provide a better customer experience overall. The platform includes a variety of features, including remote system management, app-based mobile tenant access, system alerts and scheduled reports, integrations to third-party devices and more — all designed to make it easier for self storage operators to manage their facilities, operate more efficiently and grow their businesses. 

“OpenTech’s innovative and customer-focused approach will bring new opportunities to operators all over Europe. I’m excited to be heading up our European growth, and look forward to offering robust products and top level tech support to new markets,” commented William Corbett.

Solving Challenges for European Operators

With its expansion into Europe, OpenTech Alliance is primed to help self storage operators in the region take advantage of the latest self storage technologies and provide better service to their customers. OpenTech has already deployed CIA access control at 250+ self storage facilities in the European region in partnership with e-BO Enterprises, a European IT services company that provides Level I technical support for OpenTech across Europe.
