At a time when almost every software upgrade requires an often significant investment in new hardware, you will soon come to appreciate Tredd's Self Storage Software. Our refreshingly different self storage software has a number of features that undoubtedly make it a wise choice for self storage owners and managers.

     We are proud to announce our expanded Gate Interfaces to now include PTI FalconXT / StorLogix, Falcon / Falcon2000 and SysCon / DigiGate access systems, and DKS Doorking.  Our software also offers automatic Credit Card Processing which will allow our customers with or without merchant accounts to process credit cards using PayPal or gateway. Your customers simply give you a credit card number and our software will process their credit card automatically, email them a receipt, and enter the payment into their account. 


     What's the number one compliment from our clients: ease-of-use. Normally with just two clicks of the mouse, you can manage almost all aspects of running a self storage business.  

This page is broken into two sections:  Features & Benefits and what our software does not do.

Tredd's Self Storage Software is powerful...

  • and that's just some of our features... after 19 years we have a robust software package that is easy-to-use and priced right.

Impressive, isn't it? Have a good look at these features again, because you are likely to find them in one of the next versions of our competitors, who are trying hard to match Tredd's Self Storage Software's really easy-to-use interface.  Tredd's Self Storage started as a Windows application, not as a DOS program that had to be updated like many of our competitors and we have been in business for over 19 years serving the self-storage industry and we will be around in the future when you need us.

Tredd's Self Storage Software replaces the standard
It is becoming a nightmare for self storage owners and managers to make their peg board systems or paper only systems work with the ever expanding industry.  Using Tredd's Self Storage Software, you know exactly what units are vacant, what units are paid to date, what units are late, what units are locked out,  and what units are damaged.  And above all, it saves you valuable time when tracking your units.  Every employee, whether computer literate or not, will be able to use this software.

Sophisticated and speedy access
Although full featured, the software is still incredibly fast.  Our software uses a Microsoft
relational database management system to store your customer information, which means you can quickly move from building to building, viewing all units in the buildings which are color coded to match their current status.  

Tredd's Self Storage Software is secure
Tredd's Self Storage Software features a password protected Microsoft
relational database management system.  All records and entries in our software is stored in this single database.  This also makes backing up a breeze, since you only have to backup one file to store all your transactions and history.

Tredd's Self Storage Software is extremely small and very fast
Our software runs on older PCs; so any computer running Microsoft Windows is sufficient. Do you know what that really means? The best possible protection of your computer investment. Which can be a really a big issue when it's a home PC or small office network.  Using Tredd's Self Storage Software translates into saving thousands on upgrade costs.  Our software runs on Windows 2000, Windows XP,
Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8, Windows 10, plus all modern Window Server editions.  Our two requirements for a PC to use our software are one of the previous operating systems and a screen resolution of at least 800x600.  Our software has also passed testing on both 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems for those customers who want to run our software on a terminal service server.

Tredd's Self Storage Software is your product
Hundreds of customer suggestions have found their way directly into Tredd's Self Storage Software. We are very keen to get your input on Tredd's Self Storage Software, because we are developing it for you - the self storage owner or manager.  Many developers attempt to write software packages without the direct input of their clients.  We have spoken to 100's of self storage owners who told us what they needed in a software package.

Tredd's Self Storage Software is ideal for disabled users
Using Tredd's Self Storage Software as a disabled user means being able to access the software quickly and efficiently. Tredd's Self Storage Software makes it possible to navigate entirely with the keyboard bringing joy and happiness to many visually or physically disabled friends all over the world that other software vendors have ignored.  And for our color blind or color deficient customers, you can change the colors of the unit statuses to any color you wish.  So if you have a little trouble telling green and red apart, just make them another color.  This is what sets us apart from our competitors. 

Tredd's Self Storage Software is flexible
Tredd's Self Storage Software can be tailor-made to suit your company's needs.  If your company needs a custom report, specialized graphics, or other custom needs, we will try to fulfill all your needs.  We cannot guarantee every special customization can be accomplished, but we will be honest with you about the price and time frame.

Tredd's Self Storage Software is simple
Installation is a breeze and takes less than a two minutes on most computers.  It doesn't eat up your hard disk space either. Requirements are about 35MB on a Windows XP machine.

But there is more:

  • Tredd's Self Storage Software is written from scratch and is not based on a prior release in DOS or other outdated operating system.
  • Designed for Windows 95 and has been upgraded to work with all current versions of Windows Operating Systems including Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7/8/10
  • Uses a Microsoft relational database management system with password protection.
  • Two levels of access.  One for the owner and one for your employees.
  • and much more...

Tredd's Self Storage Software loves small computers
Tredd's Self Storage Software runs quite happily on your older computer!  We recommend a Pentium based system, but it is not necessary.  If your computer can run a 32-bit Windows Operating System, then you can run this software.

Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7/8/10
We are compatible with any modern version of Windows including Windows XP/Vista/Windows 7 as well as the new Windows 8 in both 32-bit and 64-bit versions as well all modern Window Server operating systems.

Very flexible user interface
Choose whether to show the toolbar or the status bar. If you don't need it, why show it?

System administrators' dream
There are two levels of access: administrator and user.  The administrator has full access to the database and all functionality of the software.  User access has limited access dealing with unit renting, accepting payments, vacating units, and view customer information, but no access to reports or the database.  

Tredd's Self Storage Software - What it does not do

Most software vendors do not point out their shortcomings.  We disagree with that.  Our software is priced on the fact we do not have all these features.  If you do need these features, there are other companies out there with thousand dollar packages that probably do everything you want.  We feel that the consumer should know exactly what the software can do or not do, so here is a list of items that Tredd's Self Storage Software does not feature:

  • Automatic credit card billing - this feature has been added in version 7.0.0 of our software.
  • Accounting Package - No plans to add in the near future.
  • User graphic customization - most of our customers see this as a plus, they would rather have us customize the graphics, but some would like to see this option to allow the customers to change the graphics.  No plans to add and probably never will.
  • Anniversary Billing - This feature has been added.  Even though once you start using a management software package it is easier to use same-day billing, clients with a large customer base want anniversary billing.
  • Option to email billing statements - this feature has been added!
  • Accounting interface - This feature has been added!  You can now export transaction data into a Quicken QIF file format, as the new IIF format, for importing into many accounting packages.
  • Ability to send SMS Text Messages - This feature has been added, but does require an active maintenance plan.
