Yardi announced its general release of Yardi Beacon for managing public housing, affordable housing, and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s housing choice vouchers program. The web based software integrates compliance, accounting, and property management.
“Yardi Beacon is the perfect resident management platform for a small housing authority,” said Keith LePrevost, executive director for the Hightstown Housing Authority in New Jersey, which implemented Yardi Beacon in October 2011. “We use it as a complete resident management solution. Beacon automatically updates accounts and transmits subsidy calculation information to HUD. The system backs up our resident information, saving us that task. It’s a true one-click solution.”
