Vendor Requirements

Thank you for your interest in becoming a new vendor. At The Towbes Group, all vendors are required to comply with our Vendor Management Program (VMP), which includes insurance and business verification through RealPage Vendor Credentialing and electronic invoicing through Yardi Procure 2 Pay, The Towbes Groups third-party e-procurement platform. This example insurance requirement document outlines the specific requirement based on the type of service being provided.

Note: There are costs for vendors associated with RealPage Vendor Credentialing that cannot be billed back to the properties.

Vendor Enrollment

If you have been selected as a vendor to perform work for a community or region, and you agree to our Vendor Requirements, you can follow the steps below to begin your enrollment as a Towbes Group vendor.
Note: Vendors are not allowed to begin performing work for our communities until all the steps below are complete, as payment may be delayed.

  • Download the new vendor set-up form and follow the instructions to enroll in RealPage Vendor Credentialing.
  • Become Approved in RealPage Vendor Credentialing for The Towbes Group. You will not be able to proceed until your RealPage Vendor Credentialing status shows Approved.
  • Once you have been Approved with RealPage Vendor Credentialing, you will receive a Vendor Café activation email, sent to the primary email contact on file, for electronic invoicing in the Yardi Procure to Pay (P2P) system. Be sure to pay close attention to the directions in the activation email as it is a two-step process.
    • Follow the steps provided in the activation email to establish your account.
    • Be sure you complete registration with Yardi P2P/Vendor Café, as you will not be fully approved until registration has been completed.

Approved Vendors

Once you are approved as a vendor, you may begin servicing the property(s) and start submitting invoices. ALL invoices should be submitted electronically through Yardi P2P.

If you are already registered with RealPage Vendor Credentialing for another management company, you will still have to complete a separate and specific RealPage Vendor Credentialing approval process to become a Towbes Group vendor. The Towbes Group  has specific insurance and risk requirements, including a Vendor Agreement that must be signed, that are designed to protect the interests of our residents, associates, and ownership groups.

Yes. Any vendor who desires to work with The Towbes Group must register first and be approved through RealPage Vendor Credentialing. Once your RealPage Vendor Credentialing approval process is complete, you will then be sent an invitation to join Vendor Café for electronic invoice submission and tracking.

There is an annual subscription fee for RealPage Vendor Credentialing, currently $99, which covers background screening, insurance verification, and professional license verification in addition to serving as a document clearinghouse for all related and required documentation. This fee is considered a cost of doing business and cannot be billed back to the property(s) being serviced.

You may submit invoices via postal mail to the following address:

PO BOX 82713
Goleta, CA 93118-2713

Or you can enter your invoices electronically into our billing system through the following two methods:
  1. Via the Vendor Café portal
  2. Via email through the Yardi Procure 2 Pay email address (Please contact your Towbes representative for this email address)
Click here to visit the RealPage Vendor Credentialing website.

No. There is no charge to use Yardi’s Vendor Café invoicing portal. In addition to being free, Vendor Café offers you visibility into the status of your invoices, meaning you can track your invoices all the way through our approval workflow to payment process.

No, The Towbes Group does not currently use a purchase order system.

QuickBooks and many other accounting software programs can be configured to upload invoices via a CSV template. Once fully approved as a vendor, you should contact [email protected] for assistance in getting started.

Feel free to contact us. We check the email box regularly and respond to questions as quickly as possible.
