Likelihood to Recommend

AMTdirect

I think for medium to large companies AMTDirect would be invaluable to have the "whole" picture of all properties at your finger tips. For smaller companies with 10 or fewer properties maybe not as "necessary".

Yardi

It is perfect for development and property management simultaneously. The many different modules and roles that Yardi offers allow for data to be seamlessly translated as the property is developed then leased.

Pros

  • AMTDirect allows for customization to your specific needs in a snapshot. One area I appreciate is that I am able to change most labels/field names to coincide with our specific naming conventions.
  • AMTDirect has wonderful support. They respond very quickly and I always feel that I am important and matter to them.
  • AMTDirect is always interested in what I would like to see added to be even more useful to my needs. They listen to me and strive to make those changes.

  • Compiles A/P and invoices well - can easily review payments and pull prior invoices through many different modules depending on your need.
  • It is user-friendly once you are aware of how to navigate and find each module.
  • Financial reporting is a breeze and can be altered specifically to meet your needs.

Cons

  • Initially when I started using AMTDirect it was a little overwhelming because it is a lot of detail. At times I would like to see it a little more simplified. However, I will say they have over the past 6 years done that exactly. It is becoming more simplified to use, but with the same important outcomes.
  • The software is much faster than it was when I initially started using it. Some of that might be resolved if there were some drag and drop type situations more I think.

  • Yardi began as a core accounting program and added ancillary products and services along the way in a haphazard manner. Some of these ancillary products do not integrate in a comprehensive or intuitive way.
  • Yardi Concierge is a cumbersome and clumsy product. Yardi could do a better job in coaching hardware integration and product training.
  • Yardi could use a fresh web-based interface with more dashboard analytical tools.

Usability

AMTdirect8.2
Based on 1 answer
From my experience, AMTDirect does have a bit of a learning curve, but once you pass that curve the system has details and information that are vital to the decision process of lease negotiations, lease & facilities management as well as project management. I've said it a thousand times, AMTDirect is the only reason I am able to manage 50+ retail spaces by myself with regards to all of the above decisions.

I have not listened to any of the on-line video or webinars, but I have used the "help" guides and they are very easy to understand and for the most part that is how I have taught myself to use features I have never utilized before.

Return on Investment

  • AMTDirect has positively impacted our company for the simple fact that 1 person is able to handle 54 properties with regards to lease management, maintenance/repair and projects for those locations. We were at the point of needing to hire additional help, but AMTDirect has made it possible to delay hiring additional employees until we grow a little more.
  • AMTDirect has made it possible to be able for me to work from any where and not in an office with a bunch of files, because the information is at my fingertips. I am able to travel to our stores and still be able to take care of issues and answer important and at times timely questions.

  • Positive as it saved us time and money
  • Identifying problem suites with costs (maintenance costs or hours) has helped improve smart retention for us
