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.
