The company previously used multiple systems to manage their company and portfolio administrations and recently evaluated the latest technologies available to the real estate industry to assess how technology would support growth within their business.
“We needed to replace a number of systems to streamline the business and at the same time, ensure the technology within the company could support our plans for growth”, comments Ms. Tan Chiew Kian, Chief Financial Officer of Sabana Real Estate Investment Management Pte. Ltd.. “Yardi’s platform had numerous strengths: its ease of use, scalability and strong financial accounting and reporting functionality. It is also extremely important that Yardi shows a dedication to supporting clients within the local regions”.
Yardi has implemented for Sabana the Yardi Voyager integrated property management and financial accounting platform utilising Yardi Cloud Services, a cost-effective, software provisioning and data management solution, further increasing operational efficiency with Yardi hosting and maintaining its property management system.
“We are very happy to welcome Sabana on board as a client”, comments Neal Gemassmer, Vice President for Yardi Systems in Asia Pacific. “We have been able to demonstrate our commitment to our local markets once again, not just through uniquely matching our solution’s features to meet the client’s requirements, but the ability to resource and support at the local level”.
