SANTA BARBARA, CA, January 9, 2008 — Yardi Systems, the global leader in asset and property management software, is pleased to announce that Tucson Realty & Trust Company Management Services, LLC (TRT) has implemented Yardi Voyager to manage its mixed portfolio of 1,500 residential units, 6,260 condominium and homeowner association units, and 600,000 square feet of commercial office, retail and warehouse space in the greater Tucson area. By using Yardi’s browser-based Voyager with ASP (Application Service Provider) hosting, TRT benefits from increased organizational efficiency and real-time access to crucial property and financial data.
TRT is a wholly owned subsidiary of Tucson Realty & Trust, the oldest real estate firm in Arizona, which has provided superior services in Tucson since the company was founded in 1911. Now in its ninth decade of service, the company provides unparalleled management services supported by its high-quality team of professionals, commitment to customers, and Yardi’s world-class technology.
“Yardi’s browser-based Voyager system proved to be the most comprehensive program, catering to all of the different property types we manage,” explains Jeffrey L. Kelly, President of TRT. “Additionally, our managers operate more efficiently and accurately with the real-time information provided by the system.” The seamless integration of real-time accounting and property management data provides information for better decision making. Property managers can log on to the system from home or wherever Internet access is available. By using Yardi’s Application Hosting Services (ASP), TRT managers are able to focus on growing their business and providing superior services, while Yardi provides the power and performance of state-of-the-art technology and IT infrastructure, including the support services and staff necessary to keep their system running at peak efficiency.
“We implemented the Yardi system at all of our properties in approximately six months,” Kelly said. Martin Levkus, Manager of Client Services for Yardi Systems, handled the implementation and said that Yardi is thrilled to include TRT in its growing list of property management companies that use Voyager for managing diverse portfolios that include homeowner and condominium associations. TRT’s system is a testament to the breadth of Yardi’s solutions and its commitment to the marketplace.
TRT plans to expand beyond its current boundaries in the Tucson area, taking a more regional approach to its growth strategy. By using Yardi, executives at TRT are confident they have technology that will grow with them, supporting substantial growth while maintaining the same high level of service for which the company has been known for nearly a century.
