Smith Commercial Management Inc. aims to save operating costs with Yardi Voyager electronic transaction solutions


Electronic checks and invoices will allow staff to focus on leasing and client service

SANTA BARBARA, CALIF., Dec. 17, 2015 – Smith Commercial Management Inc. (SCM) will save money, storage space and staff time by automating paper- and labor-intensive processes with new solutions built into its Yardi Voyager® property management and accounting platform.

SCM will scan its invoices into electronic transactions and automate the approval workflow with Yardi Procure to Pay™.  The manual process of entering hundreds of monthly rent checks received by SCM every month into Yardi Voyager® will be automated with Yardi CHECKscan™, a payment collection solution that bulk scans checks into electronic transactions and enables same-day electronic bank deposits.

“Procure to Pay and CHECKscan will eliminate piles of paper in our office, reduce opportunities for errors through keystroking and save me from having to personally sign off on every routine vendor payment,” said Mitsie B. Smith, president of SCM.  “Voyager’s mobile-enabled capabilities allow my staff and me to work in the field, near our clients, and not be tied to the office.”

“We are glad to help Smith Commercial Management focus on its core leasing and client service operations by automating several routine business operations,” said Terri Dowen, senior vice president of sales for Yardi.
