Yardi Releases RentCafe Kiosk, Self-Service Tablet App for Multifamily


Front office leasing app offers a simple, attractive way for prospects to apply on site and residents to request services

SANTA BARBARA, Calif., September 17, 2018 –Yardi® announced the release of RentCafe® Kiosk™, a self-service app designed for multifamily property management companies. RentCafe Kiosk streamlines leasing operations on a tablet. It walks prospective renters through the complete application workflow, assists residents with concierge services and give agents secure access to front office tools.

Prospects can use RentCafe Kiosk in the leasing office to explore property photos, amenities and floor plans. They can create a guest card, set preferences and start an application without any help. Residents can also use the app to reserve property amenities and sign for packages.

RentCafe Kiosk brings daily operations full circle for the front office staff. Using the same tablet, leasing agents can manage appointments, see prospect and resident activity, send follow-up communications and countersign lease documents.

RentCafe Kiosk integrates with Yardi Voyager®, RentCafe® and RentCafe® CRM to give prospects, residents and agents access to real-time property data. Touch ID keeps sensitive data secure and out of sight for prospects and residents.

“The true value of RENTCafé Kiosk is the ease it brings to the leasing office,” said Patrick Lawler, director of RENTCafé product development at Yardi. “A prospect can learn more, self-select a unit and complete the application right there, including paying related fees. You don’t have to hand them a paper application and hope they come back or keep a separate computer in the office for online applications.”
