Pan-European industrial real estate investor and asset manager enhances forecasting capabilities with enhanced property management technology
LONDON, April 2014 – Since becoming a Yardi client in March 2009, industrial investor and asset management company M7 Real Estate has enjoyed such a successful period of growth that the company now has offices based in Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Frankfurt and Warsaw and manages over 250 assets that comprise 17,000,000 square feet of real estate.
M7 Real Estate not only uses Yardi Voyager within its own business, their property management and fund accounting partners also use the platform to ensure the integrity and accuracy of their property data. “M7’s business is extremely data heavy in nature,” explains John Croft, Director – M7 Real Estate. “The management of our real estate data and the ability to report quickly and accurately is a crucial part of our operations, the Yardi platform underpins this. We are now pleased to be implementing the Advanced Budgeting and Forecasting module which, as we move forward, will be used for all of our real estate forecasting.”
The scalable nature of the Voyager platform has suited M7’s growth pattern. Yardi Voyager has been rolled out across European operations in line with business expansion and following recent acquisitions in both the Netherlands and Denmark the company has utilised investment management and multi-currency translations with re-valuations and consolidation capabilities.
“We are pleased that M7 continues to leverage Voyager and that the dynamic nature of the platform easily expands functionality in-line with their growth patterns,” comments Colin O’Reilly, regional manager, UK sales at Yardi. “The flexibility of our solution helps the company meet evolving business requirements, achieve efficiency targets and maintain growth.”
