Richcraft Selects Quality Renters with Yardi Resident Screening


Real estate company is first in Canada to use automated online screening solution

SANTA BARBARA, Calif., October 4, 2016 —Ottawa, Ontario, Canada-based Richcraft has over 30 years of experience in residential and commercial property management. Recently Richcraft adopted Yardi Resident Screening™ — built into their Yardi Voyager® property management and accounting platform — to automatically select quality renters.

According to Stephane Chartrand, chief financial officer for Richcraft, “Yardi Resident Screening will give our leasing staff a simple, consistent way to automatically screen applicants across our portfolio.”

In addition to the integrated screening functionality, the management team looks forward to accessing information within the application process. Chartrand explained, “For our executive team, the screening analytics will provide insight into our applicant pool and selection process — which is data we can act on.”

Richcraft also reports great satisfaction with the support they have received from the Yardi Resident Screening team.

“Making screening a seamless part of the Yardi Voyager leasing workflow — and leveraging screening analytics with operating data — gives progressive companies like Richcraft a real competitive edge,” said Peter Altobelli, senior vice president of sales and general manager for Yardi Canada.
