Yardi and WhiteFence Take Revolutionary Step to Make Moving into Apartments Easier

SANTA BARBARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--A new Yardi and WhiteFence software integration will allow

apartment renters to select electric, cable, Internet, phone and rental

appliances online immediately upon signing a lease. These services,

along with other resources including registering address changes with

the U.S. Postal Service, will soon be available at one stop.

Under the Yardi-WhiteFence alignment, leasing agents will be able to

complete leases with prospects using Yardi Leasing Pad(TM) and seamlessly

direct residents to the WhiteFence platform to set up utilities and

important home services. Renters can also lease an apartment online

through RENTCaf(TM) and immediately equip their new

residence with everything they need.

"WhiteFence offers a valuable service to renters when they move in,"

said Terri Dowen, senior vice president of sales for Yardi. "Yardi's

online leasing capability makes it much easier and efficient for renters

to select essential home services through WhiteFence at the same time

that they execute their leases and sign up for our renters insurance."

The WhiteFence marketplace helps renters find the best products at the

best prices among locally and nationally respected providers of

television, Internet, phone and other home services. WhiteFence also

provides toll-free access to a live, knowledgeable "personal moving

assistant" who can walk renters through the numerous choices of

providers and packages.

"Our mission is, and always has been, delighting movers by making life

easier for them. The combination of WhiteFence and Yardi is a

revolutionary step for the apartment mover," said Franc Arbide, chief

strategy officer for WhiteFence.
