Greater Edmonton Foundation Centralizes Operations with Yardi Voyager


Housing provider replaces three separate software systems with Yardi Voyager for Canadian Social Housing

SANTA BARBARA, Calif., Oct. 18, 2016 – Greater Edmonton Foundation (GEF) Seniors Housing  will replace three software systems by selecting Yardi® Voyager™, for Canadian Social Housing as its new software platform. GEF is implementing Yardi Voyager for property management, accounting and tracking of Canadian Social Housing programs.

“Our former setup made our internal communication inefficient. Our staff worked in three separate software systems, each with its own database. It was a daily challenge to keep those systems integrated,” said Arlene Mazoleski, controller for GEF. “Voyager will make us better able to serve our residents.”

Mazoleski expects Yardi Voyager to benefit the organization as it grows. “We would like to support more seniors in the future by investing in new construction. For example, we are about to begin construction of Sakaw Terrace, a 158-unit project in Edmonton, Alberta. We’ve licensed Yardi Construction Management to track costs, schedules, and amortization for that and future construction projects,” said Mazoleski.

“We appreciate the work GEF has done toward taking a single-stack approach to software for Canadian Social Housing. We look forward to working with them as they improve internal operations and service to their residents,” said Peter Altobelli, Yardi’s vice president and general manager for Canada.
