SpareFoot Ties Into Open Software Effort

Austin-based self storage marketplace SpareFoot said this week that it has tied its online platform into a new, open data effort from the OpenTech Alliance. The company said the deal ties its customers into OpenTech's effort to let users access basic information on self storage facilities, such as available units, prices, and promotions, via an integration adapter. That adapter connects into a wide range of web-based software products being used by the self storage facility for managing their businesses.
