Emmes Group of Companies selects Yardi Voyager for its real estate business operations


Property manager adds construction management and electronic invoice processing to core Yardi Voyager platform

SANTA BARBARA, CALIF., Jan. 28, 2016 – Emmes Group of Companies has announced its decision to adopt Yardi Voyager® 7S, a browser-agnostic, fully mobilized property management and accounting platform.

Emmes will manage a key element of its diversified real estate business with Yardi Construction Management™, a full-service job costing and receivables solution built into Yardi Voyager. “We have a number of capital-intensive projects, and Construction Management will put controls on our budgets and spending and help us collect our construction management fees,” said John P. Sciammarella, chief accounting officer for Emmes.

Emmes will streamline another aspect of its business with Yardi Procure to Pay™, which scans invoices into electronic transactions and automates the approval workflow. “Doing our invoice processing within Voyager will be much more efficient than using a separate system,” Sciammarella said.

“We’re excited to have Emmes as a new client. Performing multiple business operations on a single platform will help Emmes meet its goal to outperform client and investor partner expectations,” said Terri Dowen, senior vice president of sales for Yardi®.
