Boutique residential apartment start-up adopts cloud-based property management solution in preparation for global growth
LONDON, United Kingdom, June 27, 2017 – Node, a newly launched apartment investment, development and management company, has selected Yardi’s cloud-based asset and property management solution to manage its growing global apartment rental portfolio.
With furnished boutique living spaces in major UK cities and New York City, Node sought a software-as-a-service solution that would capably handle core accounting, asset and lease management. They also wished to provide modern technology for potential and current residents. The Yardi platform makes it easy to lease apartments online and to report maintenance issues from a smartphone or laptop.
Node has residences opening next in Los Angeles and Dublin, and plans to grow across the USA, Canada and Europe. Due to positive past experiences using Yardi, Anil Khera, founder and CEO of Node, knew where to turn for a dynamic technology solution in step with the Node vision.
“At Node we’re hungry to offer truly inspirational, creative and community-style living spaces across the globe and we embrace technology as a core part of our offering,” comments Khera. “Working with Yardi to help us automate, streamline and mobilize our property management operations will further help us execute on this vision of a better way to live.”
Node’s locally curated, interior designed spaces are conveniently ready for residents to move in with just a suitcase. In Brooklyn, Casper mattresses, SMEG kitchen appliances, high-speed internet and Sonos speakers are all waiting for the creative professional to live in style. At the heart of the Node vision is the desire to foster a global community of like-minded residents who are encouraged to socialize with fellow node residents. A Community Curator in each city encourages residents to fully engage with local community life – be it volunteering, supporting local businesses or navigating the local arts scene.
“We are very pleased to be working with Anil and the Node team,” comments Neal Gemassmer, vice president of international for Yardi. “We are thrilled to be supporting them along in the journey to innovate in the build-to-rent space.”
