Additional features are slated to be rolled out for investment and property management software developer Yardi’s online solution for Canadian social housing providers.
The RENTCafé Social Housing platform makes “easier for eligible tenants to find available housing units, sign up for waiting lists and submit household information to meet social housing program requirements,” Yardi stated.
The company added that much of the upgrades will focus on the online portal’s stated mission to transform paper-based social housing transactions into “an intuitive online workflow.”
“New functionalities are scheduled to be released in 2020 and will add even more beneficial services,” Yardi announced.
To date, RENTCafé has paved for the creation of more than 57,000 online unit listings, and the submission of more than 475,000 would-be tenants.
“Our goal in developing this technology is to improve how social housing providers manage their properties and deliver units to their clients. It’s an evolution of social housing that will simplify the application process for housing providers, service managers, waitlist administrators and applicants,” Yardi vice president and general manager Peter Altobelli said.
Users can complete and submit application forms online, either through a mobile phone or a desktop computer.
“RENTCafé Social Housing proactively stops incomplete applications from being submitted by ensuring that applicants do not skip any required steps in the process.”
