Santa Barbara, CA, United States, 2016/08/04 - Avesta Housing has adopted cloud-based Yardi Voyager® Affordable Housing as its business platform for its affordable housing management portfolio - AvestaHousing.org / Yardi.com.
Avesta will streamline its property management and accounting processes and replace several pieces of software with the Yardi Voyager Affordable Housing solution stack.
As a nonprofit organization, Avesta Housing describes its technology objectives as a component of the company’s overall mission to facilitate communication and service. By replacing disparate software databases with Voyager, Avesta will have faster access to information, a more responsive operating platform, and reduced time managing data. Voyager’s resident portal will allow them to engage residents more easily.
“We expect Voyager will make us more efficient by improving communication between departments and residents. That efficiency will enable us to spend more time with our residents and achieve successful outcomes,” said Chris Kilmurry, director of property management and resident services for Avesta.
As part of the Yardi Voyager solution stack, Avesta has also selected Yardi modules for affordable housing oversight, payment processing, construction management, marketing and resident services using RENTCafé® Affordable Housing™. “This is a great example of a single-stack approach to software. Centralizing on the Yardi platform has enabled Avesta to eliminate many unnecessary software costs and inefficiencies,” said Boone Atkins, Yardi’s vice president of affordable housing sales.
