Online resources attract prospects, provide superior resident services and save staff members’ time
SANTA BARBARA, CALIF. July 13, 2015 – Yardi® has released Yardi MILITARYCafé™, an online solution featuring marketing tailored to military and civilian seekers of on-base or off-base housing, complete online lease execution and convenient resident services.
Personnel searching online for family housing or unaccompanied personnel housing can use MILITARYCafé to filter properties by service type, pay grade, service branch, and other priorities. Easy access to monthly rent information, floor plans, deposit requirements and other details allows prospects to begin the application process immediately from a desktop or mobile device.
MILITARYCafé automatically transfers prospect information into the resident record upon move-in, allowing residents the convenience of submitting maintenance requests and making payments online via the resident portal.
“Automation and mobility available through MILITARYCafé make the military housing experience easier for everybody involved. Housing providers, for example, can create a customized theme for each property site to attract prospects. Applicants can easily add dependents and secondary occupants. The entire application process, including deposit and signature, can be completed online. And if a suitable space isn’t immediately available, MILITARYCafé maintains contact with applicants with automated email updates,” said Dan Campbell, vice president of specialty solutions for Yardi.
MILITARYCafé is part of Yardi’s suite of products for military housing operators and is compatible with Yardi Voyager® for Military Housing and Yardi’s call center, utility billing and facilities management solutions.
