The challenge:

The biggest challenge for SELF STORAGE RIGA was to decide whether to opt for a sector known to them- small office spaces- or enter a new business – self storage. Visiting Janus and the supportive team at the ISS World Expo, Las Vegas in 2018, gave SELF STORAGE RIGA excellent insights and the final push to launch into the industry. It was evident that there is great potential for self storage in Latvia and that the sector offers many long-term advantages.

The Solution:

Janus worked with SELF STORAGE RIGA from the very beginning and the European team offered ongoing advice and consultation. This was a unique project for Janus as the self storage area is also part of a large car wash business. One of the difficulties was to keep the car wash customers and the self storage customers segregated, at entry and exit points. This is where the Nokē smart entry system was very beneficial. Automating the entry and exit points means that only those with the Nokē smart entry mobile application are able to enter the self storage facility.

SELF STORAGE RIGA aims to open more facilities in Latvia with the help and support from Janus International Europe in the near future.

Customer Testimonial:

“Especially in these challenging times we are happy to work with Janus International Europe and chose the Nokē system entry system for our facility. Martyn’s experience was very helpful and issues have been resolved quickly and professionally. I see huge potential for Janus with the Nokē smart entry system and this gives our customers the option to reserve their storage space online and move in straight away."
