SANTA BARBARA, CALIF., July 5, 2011 – Yardi announced today that the Atlanta Housing Authority (AHA) has selected Yardi Voyager™ as its new platform for managing property, assets, and financial performance.
In 2010, AHA elected to replace several outdated applications with a software suite specifically designed for affordable housing management and U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) reporting. AHA concluded that one system obtained from a single vendor would best serve its goal of becoming a best-in-class diversified real estate company with a public mission and purpose.
“Our previous departmental silo approach made it very difficult to obtain real-time visibility of our entire portfolio of affordable housing units in mixed-income communities. We needed a much higher degree of integration of our critical business processes, along with better business intelligence tools to analyze our assets and performance,” said Suzi Reddekopp, chief financial officer for AHA. “Yardi’s package of products and services was unique among the vendors we evaluated. The Voyager suite of multifamily products will be crucial in achieving AHA’s strategic goal of implementing an enterprise-wide, integrated solution. It will further professionalize our real estate business and enable AHA to better serve our assisted families.”
“Yardi’s experience in creating solutions for multifamily markets includes more than a decade of serving public housing authorities. We welcome the opportunity to provide AHA with a platform from which to manage its essential day-to-day functions efficiently while meeting HUD compliance standards,” said Terri Dowen, senior vice president of sales for Yardi.
