Multiple Systems Spawn Inefficiency
Before Yardi Debt Manager, Alter Domus used multiple systems for lender and borrower notices, bank file submission and other fund administration activities connected with its loan servicing offerings. Multiple systems were utilized for mortgage servicing, syndicated commercial debt and other operations.
“We manually did the loan-specific calculations, protection and indemnity insurance tracking, escrows and tax calculations, then moved them to spreadsheets or another platform to perform allocations for our syndicated lenders. The volume of work was time-consuming and inefficient, especially in our highly complex international dealings,” recalled Alex Droste, global real estate platform leader for Alter Domus.
Yardi Debt Manager
Alter Domus adopted Yardi Debt Manager, which delivers transparency from investor to borrower with a complete system to account for real estate debt investments. The system automates the billing of borrowers, collateral tracking and critical data management. Yardi Debt Manager represents a fully integrated real estate debt platform that enabled Alter Domus to eliminate manual processes and disparate systems.
End-to-End Efficiency, Elevated Customer Service
“Debt Manager streamlined our operations and let us execute end-to-end debt investment services,” Droste said. “All investment data is accessible to everybody in one shared environment, without needing middleware to move data between systems or spreadsheets that must be imported. And Debt Manager’s integration with Yardi Investment Accounting means we can provide a full-service debt management offering with full visibility for complex ownership structures.”
