Stewart Properties Selects Yardi Genesis2 for Affordable Housing


Cloud-based property management software will help Saskatoon-based company increase efficiency, grow business and save money

SANTA BARBARA, Calif., January 09, 2018 — Stewart Properties (SP) has chosen the Yardi® Genesis2™ platform to streamline operations and expand its business. Genesis2 is a cost-effective, rental property management and accounting SaaS solution for small to mid-size owners and property managers. It works with multiple property types.

SP manages a variety of residential properties, including social and senior housing. Yardi Genesis2 will provide SP with a centralized solution with access to real-time data for its entire portfolio. Industry-standard reports are built in, allowing users to see powerful analytics with a single click. Prospect and resident workflows and mobile maintenance tools speed up tasks and improve the resident experience.

“Our previous solution was hard to use and didn’t have the reports we needed. We couldn’t use it for invoicing or maintenance,” said Chanda Lockhart, operations ninja at SP. “With Genesis2, we can use one system to manage everything, from accounting to resident services. This lets us get more done without hiring additional staff.” SP is looking to offer third-party management to other property owners in 2018. “We can easily realize this goal with Genesis2,” Lockhart added.

“The built-in accounting features of Genesis2 will allow SP to bring bookkeeping in-house instead of maintaining an outside contractor,” said Peter Altobelli, vice president of sales and general manager at Yardi Canada. “They will have instant access to their financial data, enabling them to make informed decisions quickly as they expand their business.”
