Yardi Acquires Centershift

Yardi® announced today that it has acquired Centershift®, an innovative technology leader focused on the self-storage industry.

The Centershift Store™ platform is the first fully cloud-based management system designed specifically for self-storage businesses. Understanding the benefits of a centralized data system, the industry’s largest and most powerful operators have adopted Store as the hub of their storage operations.

“We are extremely pleased to be joining the Yardi team,” said James Hafen, president and CEO for Centershift. “We have long recognized that the self-storage industry was under-served when it came to technology. The breadth of services that Yardi brings to the table surpasses everything self-storage operators have come to expect from the technology available to them today. Joining Yardi introduces new possibilities to this increasingly sophisticated market, and that is an exciting prospect for all of us.”

Gordon Morrell, executive vice president and chief operating officer for Yardi, added, “We are delighted to welcome the Centershift team and to get to work leveraging our respective strengths to benefit the self-storage market.”

The Centershift team will remain in their Salt Lake City offices to continue serving their customers.
