Yardi Commercial Leasing Pad Wins Realcomm Digie Award for Promoting Fast, Efficient CRM and Leasing Workflows


SANTA BARBARA, CALIF., July 1, 2013–Yardi Commercial Leasing Pad™, a new, end-to-end mobile leasing and tenant support solution, stands ready to help commercial property leasing agents and managers reduce leasing cycle times with leasing workflows and instant access to key property information. The solution received significant industry recognition this month in the form of a Realcomm Commercial Real Estate Digital Innovation (“Digie”) Award for Most Innovative Technology.

The browser-agnostic Yardi Commercial Leasing Pad helps leasing managers complete the leasing process more quickly and efficiently on a tablet or iPad using almost any browser. It packages contact, lead, lease, tenant and property data housed in the Yardi Voyager property management and accounting system in an intuitive and mobile format. By delivering customer relationship management directly to a tablet, the solution enables leasing agents, brokers, asset managers and lease administrators to respond quickly and accurately to prospects with such real-time information as space availability, restrictive lease clauses, budgets and market rent data. Information such as proposals and counterproposals, approvals and lease documentation is efficiently produced and distributed.

Realcomm Conference Group LLC awards Digies to real estate managers, owners and technology providers. Yardi Commercial Leasing Pad received its Digie Award in the Real Estate Technology Innovation category for being the past year’s best example of technology innovation for commercial business solutions. Yardi executives accepted the Digie on June 12 at the Realcomm & IBcon 2013 Conferences in Orlando, Fla.

Yardi has won five technology Digies since 2005, including one in 2012 for its Yardi Orion™ Business Intelligence platform. Yardi executives also received Digital Impact Awards for individual innovation in 2009 and 2004.

“Yardi continues to set the pace of development for automated solutions for the commercial real estate industry,” said Jim Young, co-founder and producer, Realcomm/IBcon.

“With such features as configurable deal templates and instant mobile delivery of Voyager operational and performance reporting, Commercial Leasing Pad helps leasing agents convert more prospects into tenants and thus optimize rental revenues,” said Terri Dowen, senior vice president of sales for Yardi. “The Digie is an honor and testifies to the role that Leasing Pad will play in helping our clients meet their business objectives.”
