SANTA BARBARA, Calif., September 10, 2007 — Yardi Systems, Inc., the global leader in asset and property management software, is pleased to announce that Los Angeles-based Excel Residential Services, Inc. has selected Yardi Voyager Residential and Yardi Portal to manage its southern California portfolio. Excel Residential Services will utilize these applications to bolster efficiency, sales, and growth activities across a portfolio that includes more than 8,800 units in 65 properties.

“With its data processing, automation, dashboard and drill-down features, Voyager Residential and Portal will help us achieve several key business performance goals,” said Michael Hardy, chief financial officer of Excel Residential Services. “We look forward to using them to direct our rental activities with a degree of efficiency that is unattainable with our current property management software suite.

Yardi is pleased to include Excel Residential Services in its growing list of owners/managers using Yardi Voyager with Yardi Portal. “Yardi recognizes that residential property management businesses place increasing emphasis on operational transparency, integrated management of multiple portfolio functions, and market growth,” said Karissa Reardon, Yardi Regional Sales Executive. “The Yardi product suite is perfectly matched with Excel Residential Services’ goals in these areas.”

Excel Residential Services plans to roll out Yardi’s products at a rate of 10 properties per week beginning in September. This implementation is expected to be completed by the end of March 2008 and will provide a centralized, fully integrated asset and property management system.
