Integrating Storman Move-ins can be done by following these steps below:

 


Step 1: Prerequisites for integrating with Storman Move-ins

Before integrating with Storman Move-ins, there are some pre-requisites that need to be confirmed as in place:

  1. You must have a valid and paid up Support Plan or Subscription with Storman
  2. You must either have Storman Central (previously known as Multi-view).   If not, you can join you our "Storman Hub" which provides additional backup security for you, as well as makes it a lot easier for your company to use our Online tools such as Storman Move-ins.  Storman Add-On Application
  3. Storman Move-ins requires you to have a payment provider (see here to see who Storman can integrate Payments with).  If your Storman is already integrated with a payment provider, this will be used.
  4. Storman Move-ins is an add-on that we do charge for.  To find out our pricing, please contact us here http://storman.com/contact/.   

Step 2: How do you want Storman Move-ins to "Look and Feel" ?

You have two choices on how to customise the look and feel of your Storman Move-ins:

  1. If you want to modify the "look and feel" you will need to contact a web developer / designer to make the changes for you.  Instructions for your web developer, can be found here in the Storman Move-ins guide for Web Developers.
  2. Alternatively, you can use the default look and feel and just add your logo.  If you do these, you will need to send us a copy of your logo to match these exact specifications: 300px (W) by 100px (H) & saved as a transparent .PNG file.   
  3. One decision you will need to make is how you want the unit types for your facility presented. Storman Move-ins is able to take advantage if setup of both Unit Type categories and Size categories. Your options are as follows:
    1. Storman has no additional categories setup - In this case you won't have to make any decisions other than letting us know!
    2. Storman has unit type categories setup for the unit types - In this case you have two options, firstly grouping unit types on Storman Move-ins by unit type category then inside that category choosing your unit type, or just showing the unit types.
    3. Storman has size categories setup for the unit types - In this case you have two options, firstly grouping unit types on Storman Move-ins by size category then inside that category choosing your unit type, or just showing the unit types.
    4. Storman has both unit type categories and size categories setup for the unit types - In this case you have five options!
      1. Group unit types on Storman Move-ins by unit type category, then size category then inside that category choosing your unit type
      2. Group unit types on Storman Move-ins by size category, then unit type category then inside that category choosing your unit type
      3. Group unit types on Storman Move-ins by size category then inside that category choosing your unit type
      4. Group unit types on Storman Move-ins by unit type category then inside that category choosing your unit type
      5. Just show the unit types
  4. Don't worry, if at any stage in the future you change your mind all of the above can be altered through your admin panel.

Step 3: Get in contact with us!

  1. Your name, company and Storman facility code.
  2. Your Storman software web access password.  This can be found in Maintenance > System Setup > Security.  If it is blank, choose a password and send it to us.
  3. Optionally, the name of your web developer/web designer so that we are aware of them when they contact
  4. An indication of timing on when you would like Storman Move-ins up and running.

Once we receive this information, we will start to work with you to ensure that all of the the pre-requisites above are complete.
