1. Work from anywhere

When you use Breeze, all your data is stored securely in the cloud. That means you can work from anywhere on any internet-enabled device. Need to access a tenant record, check on the status of a unit or run a financial report while you’re not at the office? No problem. You can see and do everything you need on your phone, tablet and laptop too.

2. Add online tenant services

Today’s renters don’t want to come into the office. They expect to be able to do everything online. Unlike with Yardi Genesis, if you use Breeze to manage your properties, they can!

Your prospects and tenants will be able to apply for a unit, pay rent and other fees, and submit maintenance requests online. Convenient tenant portals let them log in and view their account information, lease documents and more at any time, day or night.

3. Get better owner tools

Increase owner satisfaction and impress prospective owners with tools that give them easy access to information about their properties. Quickly run reports by owner or property and then instantly deliver them via a secure owner portal that displays only the information you want your owners to see.

Prefer to email or snail mail your reports? We’ll deliver them any way that works for you. Check out the ways our property management software makes owner reporting simple.

4. Manage communications easily

Here’s something you’ll like about Breeze over Yardi Genesis. Email your prospects, tenants, owners and vendors from Breeze , and you’ll have a complete record of every communication. You can also text your tenants, which is a great way to guarantee a high open rate for your property communications. 

Looking for more advanced options? Yardi Breeze Premier gives you the option of two-way text messaging, so you can quickly reach your tenants, prospects, owners and vendors and carry on a text conversation. All messages are stored and can be viewed later on the Conversation History screen.

5. Enjoy live chat support

Even with an easy-to-use program like Breeze Premier, there is always a learning curve when you switch platforms. Fortunately, our amazing support team is here to help. You can live chat with them in real time for free, no additional fees or support subscription required.
