Fischer Properties LLC Cuts Tax Prep Time with Yardi eLearning


Online employee training platform used to expedite tax training for accounting employees  

SANTA BARBARA, Calif., May 3, 2016 – Commercial property owner and manager Fischer Properties LLC cut the time and labor required to prepare its federal 1099 forms by training its employees using Yardi eLearning™.

Every January, Fischer Properties generates about 1,200 IRS 1099 forms to document payments to vendors annually. “Much of our accounting staff wasn’t familiar with the process or how to find the necessary information in Yardi Voyager®. This year, after taking a two-hour course through Yardi eLearning, all the forms were completed and ready for my review in two days. This was much less time than needed in previous years.  We met our end-of-January completion target. The process was a lot simpler for everybody,” said Jeanne Atkins, CFO for Fischer Properties.

Yardi eLearning is an online training solution that delivers webinars, in-person classes and on-demand self-study courses on various aspects of property management. The learning platform includes a comprehensive library of out-of-the-box courses, plus a toolset for clients to create their own custom courses. For more information, visit
