SANTA BARBARA, CALIF., March 27, 2008 — Yardi Systems, the global leader in asset and property management software, is pleased to welcome Silverado Senior Living, Inc. to the growing Yardi Voyager Senior Housing user community.
As a nationally recognized leading provider of specialized care for those with Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, vascular and other memory impairment diseases, Silverado offers a full continuum of services from earliest onset of the disease through end-of-life care. Silverado currently operates 16 communities (1,021 beds), as well as Care Management, Home Care and Hospice services throughout Texas, California and Utah, with continued expansion planned for 2008. Silverado also participates in a number of research affiliations with leaders in the field of Alzheimer’s disease including University of California, San Diego, UCLA, USC, UCI, Baylor College of Medicine and University of Utah.
As a privately owned organization with investors, executives at Silverado recognized the need for a transparent system that could centralize operations and streamline workflow throughout their multi-state portfolio. With 16 communities and 150 users, and expected growth in 2008, Rick Barker, Vice President of IT, looked for a browser-based, ERP real estate system to support multiple areas of the business–finance, marketing, care, and general property management–under one umbrella. After carefully reviewing solutions offered by a variety of vendors, Rick identified Yardi Voyager Senior Housing as the best solution to support these requirements and corporate initiatives.
Not only will corporate executives gain full transparency of operations and enhanced investor reporting, but every area of the business will be centralized in one system, eliminating the need for the IT department to support disparate systems throughout multiple departments and locations. “With the implementation of Voyager Senior Housing,” said Barker, “we see an opportunity for substantial cost savings through the elimination of duplicate data entry, currently three to four times in our non-integrated systems, and substantially improved operational efficiencies. We recognize the importance of streamlined processes and a transparent system, and Yardi’s secure ERP system supports these initiatives very well,” he continued. The addition of Yardi’s browser-based, singular database system also exemplifies the sophisticated vision of Silverado’s management in an effort to increase marketability and corporate valuation upon an Initial Public Offering.
With an aggressive implementation plan completed by Yardi’s Professional Services team, training throughout the Silverado organization is well under way with staff anxiously anticipating a “better way” to do business.
