SANTA BARBARA, CALIF., Sept. 3, 2009 – Yardi Systems, a leading developer of real estate investment and property management software, announced today that commercial real estate investment and management firm AEGON USA Realty Advisors, Inc. has selected Yardi Voyager™ and Yardi Investment Management™ to facilitate timely decision-making and ensure compliance with financial reporting standards.
Prior to implementing Yardi Voyager, AEGON Realty, whose $1 billion portfolio includes 56 commercial properties, 28 condominiums and 10 corporate facilities, maintained separate accounting and property management databases. “Our managers spent too much time manually importing and combining data instead of managing assets and generating value, and they were often working from old information,” said David Feltman, AEGON Realty executive vice president of Real Estate. “By centralizing the information, Voyager gives managers real-time access to all portfolio information, allowing them to focus on their core functions and make timely, better-informed business decisions.”
AEGON Realty will rely on Yardi Investment Management to facilitate its compliance with International Financial Reporting Standards. The software enforces accurate reporting by automatically combining all phases of financial reporting and eliminating the manual steps required to make accounting entries in multiple sets of books.
“Yardi Voyager and Yardi Investment Management help AEGON Realty meet competitive and regulatory demands across its international portfolio. AEGON Realty receives timely, accurate information it needs to seize business opportunities and comprehensive reports that leave a complete audit trail,” said Terri Dowen, Yardi senior vice president of Sales.
