SANTA BARBARA, CALIF., Dec. 29, 2009 – Yardi Systems announced today that Goodman Group, Australia’s largest industrial real estate investment trust with 32 international offices, has successfully implemented Yardi Voyager™ in its Sydney Head Office.

Goodman’s use of Yardi Voyager includes performing general ledger accounting, recording transactions in multiple currencies, tracking data on leases and occupancy, and consolidating Group ledgers.

“We were looking for a property management and general ledger solution that could handle our multicurrency and multilingual needs. Yardi Voyager was chosen since it was the best fit for our business needs,” said Ritesh Deshpande, Goodman’s head of Applications. “As a Web-based solution, Voyager gives us the global reach, scalability and visibility that are essential to managing our diverse and international business.”

He added, “We were able to implement Voyager in a very short timeframe. The business-driven project implementation approach was the primary reason for a successful completion of this project. We had strong buy-in from all departments within the business, including Finance, Marketing and Property Management, and a skilled implementation team from Yardi meant that we were able to complete the job quickly. Furthermore, the onsite Australian Yardi team was very accommodating to our business needs, collaborating closely with us to identify and quickly resolve issues and helping us stay on schedule with minimal disruption to our operations.”

“Voyager is a complete business solution whose scalability makes it fully capable of expanding along with Goodman’s global needs.
