Commonwealth Senior Living Improves Operational Oversight with Yardi Voyager


Virginia-based senior housing provider uses software platform to improve workflows and eliminate redundancies

SANTA BARBARA, Calif., July 24, 2017 – Tapping into the functionality of Yardi Voyager® Senior Housing allowed Commonwealth Senior Living to enhance task management and increase productivity.

“Now that we have Voyager, our home office staff can manage all the information in one system and access data in real time at all of our locations,” says Angela Kennedy, Senior Accountant for Commonwealth Senior Living. “Not only has this helped us tremendously from an operations standpoint, but it’s also made our staff a lot happier.”

Using Yardi Voyager Senior Housing to centralize recordkeeping and track resident services, Commonwealth Senior Living removed time-consuming data entry tasks while also simplifying workflows, allowing staff to devote more time to residents, which benefits staff and seniors alike.

Customized system access is role-based for each associate’s duties and responsibilities. As a result, staff use the areas of the system most relevant to them. “Sometimes a new associate can be intimidated by a robust software system because it can do so much and there are so many options,” Kennedy says. “We were able to tailor the system for the staff on the front line to make it easy for them.”

“With Yardi Voyager Senior Housing, Commonwealth Senior Living can address many of the challenges affecting staff retention. Removing repetitive, laborious tasks allows staff to spend more time interacting with residents, leading to a meaningful and fulfilling workplace,” said Ray Elliott, vice president of senior living at Yardi.
