Latest Voyager platform is browser-agnostic and enables full mobility
SANTA BARBARA, CALIF., Dec. 18, 2013 – Over the past five months, more than 500 Yardi Voyager® clients—with the number growing daily—have adopted the browser-agnostic, mobile-enabled Yardi Voyager® 7S, the latest, most advanced version of Yardi’s core software-as-a-service (SaaS) real estate management platform.
Yardi Voyager 7S is compatible with all major Internet browsers, offering real estate investment and property management clients access to Yardi Voyager 7S from any mobile device. Users of Yardi Voyager 7S also can add new products such as Yardi Leasing Pad™, RentCafe™, Yardi Orion™ Business Intelligence and a host of other ancillary and front office products and services that together create a full business platform.
“I like the improved search functionality and the fact that we can access information instantly, without having to open new screens. Also, as mobile access begins playing a larger role in our business, Voyager 7S will easily accommodate the mobile applications of new products that we’ll soon deploy, such as Yardi PAYscan™,” said Sandra Johnson, property accountant for real estate developer and manager Lake Washington Partners.
Voyager 7S is deployed as software-as-a-service with three options: SaaS, in which updates are automatically applied; SaaS Select, in which the client determines when to apply updates; and Private Cloud, in which clients have their own dedicated network.
“I am very satisfied with Voyager 7S. I believe the new format is a significant improvement in screen layout, accounting functionality and user-friendliness,” said Robert B. Sher Jr., president of Sher Properties Inc. “Our conversion to Voyager 7S went very smoothly, and the SaaS hosting is virtually indistinguishable from working on a local server.”
All new clients who licensed Yardi Voyager after July 1, 2013 implemented Voyager 7S, and Yardi continues to work with existing Yardi Voyager clients to establish migration timetables.
“As Yardi continues in our fourth decade as a business, Voyager 7S represents our latest effort to help clients sustain consistent growth with innovative, agile and service-oriented new technologies,” said Terri Dowen, senior vice president of sales for Yardi. “We are excited to help our clients employ an easy, best practices-based deployment that also delivers mobility and a full-business solution.”
