Something Missing?

You may notice a reference does not exist for an asset or unit even though your customer is using Yardi RentCafe as a data provider. This is likely because we have yet to create these references for Yard RentCafe and we must first gather and match the values for each asset and unit. If this is the case and you are interested in references being provided, please email Marisa Paukovich.
