Real estate software firm Yardi Systems Inc. has released its first mobile, Web-based, cloud-hosted product designed for self-storage operators. Yardi Genesis2 for Self Storage is built on a software-as-a-service platform and designed to streamline property-management and accounting functions for businesses with small to mid-sized portfolios. It features automated, day-to-day operational workflows and a full accounting system. Data is centralized and accessible from any Internet connection, according to a press release.
The product is built on the Yardi Genesis2 Suite, a fully integrated platform that enables optional add-ons related to insurance, leasing, marketing, payment processing and tenant services. For example, RENT Café is a marketing and leasing module that allows storage customers to “apply” for available units as well as manage their accounts and make payments online, company officials said.
“We are thrilled to welcome self-storage clients to Yardi and are so pleased to offer them additional end-to-end management solutions that will help them optimize operations and achieve their business goals,” said Terri Dowen, senior vice president of sales.
Yardi will continue to support Store Advantage and Store Enterprise, self-storage applications designed for integration with call centers, centralized mail services, corporate offices, mobile devices, Web aggregators, websites and other business systems, company officials said. Yardi took control of those products when it acquired management-software firm Centershift Inc. in March 2014.
Yardi is a designer, developer and supporter of software for the management of property and other real estate investments. Its suite of programs includes accounting, ancillary processes, operations and services with portfolio-wide business intelligence and platform-wide mobility. Based in Santa Barbara, Calif., and founded 40 years ago, Yardi serves clients worldwide from offices in Asia, Australia, Europe, the Middle East and North America.
