Geir (50) started his first business at age 14 which was a B2C distributor of software in the Norwegian marketplace. Since then he has started up, operated, merged, and sold businesses within: IT Outsourcing, Datacenter, Dinner Kit, Wine, Property, and now Self-Storage. He splits his time between Norway and South Africa.
Flexistore was developed to create the user journey most people expect of a company today, and by doing that, create a platform that saves the property owner a substantial expense. Our App-driven approach gives the customer full control over his decisions, 24 hours a day - every day of the year. He can easily access, share access, order transport, upgrade or downgrade - all within seconds without any waiting time.
Our first site was launched three years ago, and we are now opening up two new sites per month in the Nordic Countries and South Africa. We plan to expand into the US and UK in the near future, and so far we have proven 35% - 40% saving for existing self-storage owners with a payback time of the investment in less than a year.
With serious investors onboard, we keep investing in technology. Our proprietary hardware and our own cloud-based software running on the Amazon platform secures a fast, scalable, and very cost-effective way for self-storage owners to go self-service. Our customer service center in Cape Town, South Africa, operates 24 hours with storage experts speaking English that everyone understands.
