Santa Barbara, CA, United States, 2016/01/19 - Platform upgrade includes latest, most advanced version of Yardi Voyager Affordable Housing - HomeSpringResidential.com.
HomeSpring Residential Services, LLC (HomeSpring) announced today an upgrade to Yardi Voyager® 7S. Through this upgrade, HomeSpring gains Web-based property management and affordable housing solutions hosted by Yardi® in a cloud-based, SaaS environment. Founded in 1982, HomeSpring manages more than 2,700 affordable housing units from its headquarters in San Antonio, Texas.
HomeSpring Vice President Ginger Miller described how the company expects the upgrade to benefit the organization. “Upgrading to 7S greatly enhances HomeSpring’s efforts to share real-time data to staff across all departments, including finance, property managers and our compliance reporting teams. I can’t imagine operating as a property manager without Yardi Voyager, and this upgrade makes Voyager even more valuable to us as an organization,” said Miller.
Miller described how working with Yardi keeps HomeSpring up to date with evolving affordable property management technology. “With Yardi I don’t have to try to predict what technology is coming soon or what technology we might be missing out on. Yardi is on the cutting edge and consistently delivers products that take advantage of all of the latest developments for property managers,” said Miller.
One example of this is RENTCafé® Affordable Housing, which HomeSpring uses to provide its residents the ability to make online payments and service requests. “Residents expect these Web-based conveniences. It’s great that Yardi offers a client-facing online solution built into our core Voyager platform.” Miller also spoke of the potential for RENTCafé Affordable Housing to manage affordable housing applications processes. “We process approximately 300 affordable housing applications per month. We are interested in seeing how RENTCafé Affordable Housing may help us eliminate paperwork from the application process and get our applicants to submit everything online, including digital attachments of supplemental documents,” said Miller.
Yardi Vice President of Affordable Housing Boone Atkins noted how much Yardi appreciates its long-term relationship with HomeSpring. “HomeSpring is very much a success story for Yardi. We are thrilled to bring technology solutions to this great company for more than 20 years. HomeSpring creates valuable housing and community service resources in San Antonio, and we are proud they’ve selected Yardi,” said Atkins.
