Yardi, a provider of software for real estate investment management and property management, announced that to date more than 200 clients have adopted its Voyager SaaS (News - Alert) (Voyager S) solution in the Yardi Cloud, as the software as a service (SaaS) solution facilitates in reducing costs as well as streamlines operations with improved service and software control.
With the client base for Voyager SaaS still growing, Yardi has been offering a full real estate management system, which includes operations, accounting, and ancillary processes and services with portfolio-wide business intelligence, for more than three decades.
The Yardi Voyager solution is a fully-integrated, Web-based, enterprise management system designed for property owners, managers and investors in global real estate markets. The software solution is designed to meet the specific requirements of every real estate market, including commercial, multifamily housing, affordable housing, senior housing, public housing and military housing.
Centralizing accounting and property management data in a single database, the Yardi Voyager enables users to view every aspect of an enterprise in real time through a transparent system.
According to Yardi, the number of Voyager S users has doubled every three months since the solution was introduced in March 2012. The company claims that its clients moved to Voyager S for its scalable and secure infrastructure with disaster recovery, high performance, automated software and hardware upgrades, simplified implementation using industry best practices, and enhanced customer service.
Available in two versions, namely Voyager SaaS and Voyager SaaS Select, the Voyager S enterprise management system is a SaaS successor to its Yardi Voyager software. With Voyager SaaS, the company manages service packs, plug-ins and new versions.
According to Yardi, each SaaS client benefits from its own secure database that is configured based on best practices while leveraging Voyager S. Each client still retains the ability to tailor and customize Voyager features to meet its individual requirements. Unlimited application support is also available with the Voyager SaaS option.
Some of the clients of Voyager S include Proxus Management LLC – a full-service residential property management company, and Sher Properties Inc. – a provider of management services for a variety of commercial properties.
"Voyager S fits our need as a paperless company perfectly, as does Yardi PAYscan," said Morten Lillelund, CEO of Proxus Management. "… Software updates are completely seamless, with no business disruption. Yardi also met our aggressive implementation timetable, allowing our business to get up and running quickly. Voyager S gives us flexibility as a virtual company, allowing employees to see their own schedules and work from any location, and it's scalable as we grow our portfolio."
"With Voyager S, we receive responsive technical help to fix any issues that develop, without having to wait for upgrades," said Robert Sher Jr., president of Sher Properties, in a statement. "We had a smooth transition from our previous Yardi property management platform with customized onsite training. We can access data smoothly, securely and efficiently from multiple locations and not having to maintain server and data backups is much more efficient."
