Closing a Nokē Smart Entry Sale

Help with closing a sale on a smart unit, walking through the rental process, and getting a new tenant set up in the NSE system.

Introducing the Nokē Smart Entry System

When a prospect comes into the storage facility for a tour or calls inquiring about getting a space, here are some ways to start talking about smart storage with your customer.

If the tenant is on-site, we recommend that you try to accomplish the following goals: 

  • Get their information.
  • Find out why they need storage.
  • Help to pick a unit size that will be a good solution for their needs.
  • Give them a tour of the facility.
  • Show them how the tenant's mobile app works to open entry points and units.
  • Place your manager's mobile app in Demo Mode to emulate what the tenant's mobile app offers them after renting the unit as a tenant.

Improving Customer Experience by Educating the Tenant 

The tenant has never used smart storage before, but here are some answers to the tough questions that our industry faces. And, it provides the solution that tenants have been searching for--one that your competitors likely don't offer.


Setting Up the Tenant's Mobile App

Upon completion of the rental, a text message is sent to the tenant with instructions on how to continue. The tenants click the link and download the app to their mobile phones. 

    Note: The tenant's mobile app is called Storage Smart Entry by Nokē.

    The text message the tenant receives looks like this:
    Your <FacilityName> storage unit is ready. Download app. iOS or Android: Your temporary password to log in is <PIN>

    Downloading the App 

    A smart device with Bluetooth is required to communicate with the entries and smart locks, and the tenant phone numbers are stored in your facility's property management software (PMS) system. The tenant's smart device must be able to receive text messages using a mobile phone number to receive text messages. Storage Smart Entry by Nokē is available in Apple and Google app stores. You can assist tenants with resending activation links and resetting passwords from the Nokē Web Portal.
