London’s £1 billion renovation project to be managed on Yardi’s flagship cloud-based property management, budgeting, forecasting and accounting platform
London (11, June 2019) – Olympia London, a major mixed-use redevelopment project owned by Yoo Capital and Deutsche Finance, will be managed with Yardi Voyager®, a cloud-based and mobile-enabled property management, construction, leasing and accounting platform. The redevelopment of Olympia London will entail the transformation of the 130-year-old centre into a mix of exhibition, commercial, coworking, leisure and retail space.
In conjunction with Yardi Voyager, Yoo Capital has also adopted Yardi® Job Cost, a cost control solution that tracks budgets and improves forecasts, and Yardi® Procure to Pay, an end-to-end procurement solution that simplifies vendor management, provides complete visibility into spending and enables paperless invoicing.
“We chose to invest in a modern technology platform to power the success of this high-profile project from the ground up. Replacing spreadsheets and offline systems, Yardi’s solutions will deliver a fully-connected development and accounting platform with intuitive reporting for project cost tracking. Yardi Voyager will then be utilised to manage developed assets post development,” said Andy Colman, finance director of Olympia London.
“We’re very pleased to be part of such an exciting project, and to be providing a technology solution that will support the successful redevelopment of Olympia London,” said Neal Gemassmer, vice president of international for Yardi. “We are looking forward to helping manage all aspects of the development and supporting longer term operational success after the project is completed.”
