SiteLink International Introduces World First Self Storage Software Certification Program.
Sitelink International, based in Brisbane, Australia recently introduced its “SiteLink Certified Professional” program of software skills certification for users of the multi Award winning SiteLink Web Edition software.
Used by more than 90% of large operators in South East Asia and many hundreds of smaller operators, the new software certification is a world first and has met with huge success.
“Self Storage staff really have up until now, no real opportunity to have an industry based professional career qualification” Dallas Dogger said.
“We have designed and implemented an online system of education based training with ten modules from beginner to advanced”. He said.
The courses are self paced with a test at the conclusion of each module and staff can take the course at no additional cost to the normal monthly subscription.
Staff completing the courses have their skill is checked and Certification is granted. Group regional managers also can review staff progress and offer assistance and the courses are browser based allowing for completion on any internet connected device.
With modern technology the SiteLink Certified Professional training and certification program reduces operator training costs substantially, delivering even more value to SiteLink users.
“Owners can spend thousands training staff and our new program is designed to slash these costs. Some staff also never received any training and re left to work out how to use software themselves and many never get to develop a clear understanding of the software.
We have also found that staff teach others and sometimes bad habits develop. Our new program delivers a consistent training method. Groups can also add their own material. Dogger commented.
SiteLink Certification is a critical step in Self Storage learning and the skill levels achieved will mean staff with these skills are sough after and can demonstrate a high level of understanding of SiteLink Web Edition.
Self Storage has developed into a skills based business and the days are long gone of having a low level skilled person representing your brand and facility.
Many Self Storage facilities being built today have values exceeding 10 million dollars and you cannot entrust these investments to unskilled people.
SiteLink Web Edition contains many advanced features and tools that enhance revenue generation. Once mastered and used properly, these tools can add significant incremental value to any Self Storage facility.
Staff achieving certification will have access over time to additional resources and benefits and the first SiteLink Certified professionals will be recognised at the annual SiteLink User Conference on 15th March 2017 on the Gold Coast.
This event is where fellow SiteLink users and Self Storage professionals gather from around South East Asia for intensive sessions based around operations and income and time saving tools for users and is the only software conference for Self Storage Software in the Southern Hemisphere.
