Canadian condominium manager also extends its new property management platform with online leasing and resident service solutions.
SANTA BARBARA, CALIF., Dec. 15, 2015 – Condominium manager Almega Capital Property Management “needed a holistic property management software system that could do everything for us,” according to company owner Basem Hanna. Almega found such a solution in Yardi Genesis2™, a mobile, Web-based, and cloud-hosted platform for owners and managers of small to mid-sized residential and commercial real estate portfolios.
“We almost doubled our units under management recently. We knew that if we didn’t adopt an automated platform that reduces opportunities for errors associated with property accounting, we’d be in trouble later. Genesis2 is the only system we could find that fully accommodates all property management and compliance requirements in Canada and is priced for a company of our size,” Hanna said.
Almega will also adopt RENTCafé®, a full online leasing and resident services solution that includes marketing, rent payments and maintenance requests. “RENTCafé is a natural fit for us as the number of condo units we manage grows. It’s easy to market our properties and execute step-by-step leasing including screening, with minimal manual data entry. It’s equally convenient for residents to make payments and submit maintenance requests online. As an added benefit, integration of RENTCafé with Genesis2 eliminates user errors and automatically retains historical data,” Hanna said.
“Yardi® is pleased to provide Almega with a full business property management and resident service solution that will provide a competitive advantage in the dynamic Canadian rental market,” said Terri Dowen, senior vice president of sales for Yardi.
