Lowe's forms a pro partnership with Yardi

In its latest offering to professional customers, Lowe’s has partnered with Yardi – the provider of property and asset management software.

The move gives pro customers on the Yardi platform a streamlined way to shop for their business at Lowe’s.

Beginning in January, property management professionals who require a fully automated end-to-end procurement and invoice processing platform can directly route their LowesForPros.com orders through approvals and fulfillment at their local store via the platform.

"Our partnership with Yardi demonstrates our continued progress in making it easier for Pros to grow their businesses with us," said Fred Stokes, Lowe's senior vice president, pro sales and services. "Over the past year, we have focused on meeting the basic needs of our pro customers and now we are investing in new partnerships and improved experiences to better serve this important customer."

According to Lowe’s, customer benefits from the partnership include:

  • Customers can create custom catalogs for frequently-purchased products to make recurring purchases quick and easy

  • Access purchase history reports for all employees

  • Set-up and manage tax-exemptions online

  • Access Lowe’s Business Account support online and in-store

  • Gain customer-specific pricing online

  • Purchase contractor pack offers online

  • Control spend and help protect against fraud with purchase approvals


In addition to the partnership with Yardi, Lowe’s said that it has expanded its e-procurement offerings to customers, creating a seamless shopping experience from purchase to payment.

Lowe’s also said that by having the right technology and partnerships in place, it allows the retailer to work with property management professionals who require a fully automated end-to-end procurement and invoice processing platform.

"Yardi works with thousands of client properties whose needs differ, and our partnership with Lowe's gives our users access to countless services and products to continue growing their business," said Akshai Rao, vice president of Yardi Procure to Pay. "With such a wide selection of products on LowesForPros.com, clients can find exactly what they need to get the job done."
