SANTA BARBARA, CALIF., July 25, 2008 – Yardi Systems, the global leader in asset and property management software, announced that it has added Pathway Senior Living LLC to its growing Yardi Voyager™ Senior Housing user community. Pathway will use Yardi Voyager to manage its senior apartment and senior living communities in Illinois and Michigan.
Pathway, which is nationally recognized for leadership in providing affordable, high-quality residences and care for seniors, will use Yardi Voyager to achieve greater operating efficiency, enhanced business transparency, and crucial executive analysis tools for its growing portfolio. “We started examining business systems and infrastructure needs about two years ago,” said Brian Cloch, Pathway principal and co-founder. “Yardi worked with our team to demonstrate how an integrated solution that combines property management, accounting, marketing, resident management, census, billing, facility operations, assessment and care into one solution will help us reach our infrastructure goals.”
He added, “We are excited to start implementing the Yardi Voyager solution. Yardi has shown us how we will meet our information system goals, and their business culture closely matches ours. We are very pleased to start a long-term relationship with a great organization like Yardi.”
Pathway expects elements of the system to come on line in the fourth quarter of 2008, with fully live processing anticipated by the first quarter of 2009. The company’s signature program is the state of Illinois’ affordable, assisted living model known as the IL Supportive Living program. Pathway’s founders, including Cloch, take a leadership role in this program, which brings affordable residences to seniors.
Yardi Voyager serves more than 30 of the most respected senior living owners and operators. Collectively they operate more than 1,000 communities.
