New York-based company and Aegis Living showcase ability of marketing partners to send leads directly into a Yardi sales prospect database
SANTA BARBARA, CALIF., Sept. 21, 2011 –Seniors for Living, the largest provider of cost-per-lead marketing services to senior housing and home care providers across the U.S. and Canada, recently teamed with Aegis Living to complete one of the first implementations of an online leads referral interface developed by Yardi Systems.
Using the referral interface, lead generation sites can automatically feed new online sales leads directly into their marketing partners’ Yardi Voyager™ Senior Housing platforms, without manual entry or risk of data loss. With reliable, real-time data, companies can better manage sales efforts around their lead generation campaigns. This drives better overall performance and return on investment.
“Ensuring that prospects automatically flow from the lead generation system to the Yardi Voyager lead management system provides a more accurate way to measure the performance of sales counselors and target advertising dollars more effectively,” said Jordon Keltz, CEO of Seniors for Living. “We are excited to see Yardi take a leadership role in helping its clients adapt to lead generation, a rapidly growing part of senior living marketing.”
“We are in the business of helping our clients become more efficient, so we didn’t hesitate when asked to build a bridge to Seniors for Living and the other leading marketing sites. The industry response has been fantastic and we’re very proud of this Web-leads interface. We are confident it can help senior housing operators improve their lead management and prospect conversion ratios,” said Eric Kolber, vice president of senior housing for Yardi.
“The implementation went very well, with Yardi and Seniors for Living working with our technology team to get the posting system up and running smoothly,” said Adam Clark, director of financial analysis for Aegis Living, one of the largest senior living providers in the U.S. “We’ve had leads come directly into our Voyager system for a couple of months and we’re already seeing increased efficiency for the sales team and management reporting.”
“The ability to automate key business processes within Yardi Voyager has been a cornerstone of our senior housing clients’ success. We are delighted that our leads referral interface will help Seniors for Living and Aegis grow their businesses,” said Terri Dowen, senior vice president of sales for Yardi.
