Sovran Self Storage, Inc. is a fully integrated, self-administered and self-managed real estate investment trust (REIT) that acquires and manages self storage properties. The Company owns and/or operates approximately 500 self storage facilities encompassing over 30 million square feet, making it one of the largest self-storage companies in the United States.

Sovran Self Storage approached Chakra to create a corporate collateral online store for its Uncle Bob’s Self Storage Stores which would serve as a central ordering hub for standard and customized print collateral for all of their 500+ nationwide stores.

Chakra customized and launched a platform allowing store managers the flexibility of customizing and ordering print collateral based upon need. Chakra’s print-on-demand environment combined with a robust web-to-print solution has reduced cost and obsolescence, improved brand management, reduced program management overhead and provided consistent on-time delivery of important collateral. This has provided Uncle Bob’s Stores the ability to bring custom sales collateral to market quickly and seamlessly.

Client Response

Chakra implemented a web-to-print ordering system for our 500 stores that offered flexibility in the ordering process, centralized invoicing, and tremendous printing that’s customized for each store’s order. We’ve brought sales collateral to market that we’ve never been able to before -messaging and graphics we can control as easily as we can design them in Illustrator, and still pay a reasonable price on a per-order basis.
