Jerry Jones CPA
Wouldn’t it be nice to have a CPA that you deal directly with, that knows the Self Storage business, that works in all 50 states and is there for you when you need him?
Jerry has been our accountant since we started in the self storage business, some 20 years ago. I look to him as more than an accountant, but as a valuable business asset. He is continually suggesting new ways to reduce costs and improve profits. Also, he has developed some unconventional reports that are very helpful in evaluating our business on a day to day basis. I would recommend him to any self storage operator.

French firm aims to bring robots to U.S. self-storage facilities

by John Egan

Matthieu Besozzi faced a dilemma.

One of his two self-storage facilities in Toulouse, France, was too small to justify the cost of hiring a manager. So he and his colleagues decided to operate the 10,000-square-foot facility remotely, without any staff.

However, managing a facility remotely demands regular on-site visits to handle day-to-day tasks, such as checking on a property's cleanliness and security.

The solution? Besozzi and his colleagues developed their own self-storage robot.

Today, six Keylo robots are being used by self-storage facilities in France, the Netherlands and Switzerland, with another 14 robot deployments in Europe scheduled for the remainder of 2017.

And if all goes as planned, Keylo robots soon will be roaming self-storage facilities in the U.S.

Wyca Robotics is looking for the first US facility to use its Keylo robot for unmanned operations.

The robots are coming
