Buildium

For larger communities, Buildium doesn’t have the accounting capabilities you need. Anything up to 100 units is easily managed and works well.

Yardi

Yardi Voyager is well suited for any management company in the multifamily or commercial space and is a worthwhile competitor to other options in the space - MRI Software, Realpage, Resite, etc. For those med-large enterprises that value an intuitive and straightforward accounting and leasing system, and also work with other vendors that need to integrate with their ERP system, this is a great option. There is a large ramp-up time, requiring many company resources, and licensing is quite expensive, so this solution may not be for those companies with a small budget or personnel resources.

Yardi

  • Yardi Property Management particularly excels at creating a system where it is easy to leave feedback for property managers because the data is available up front.
  • Yardi is also a useful tool at integrating property management across the entire platform. It can be used for asset management as well even for the most nitty gritty details.
  • It is also convenient to edit expenses inputted by the accounting department and managing those expenses forward for future budgeting.

Cons

Buildium

  • Buildium has done a great job over the last decade of developing software to keep pace with industry standards.
  • Buildium has room for improvement with the use of artificial intelligence to make repetitive processes more automated.

Yardi

  • In my experience there's a fairly steep learning curve for a new user to be able to navigate the system
  • While there's diverse functionality, many items seem buried in menus or obscure places, particularly the first time you're trying to find them
  • Getting used to the refresh functionality in some parts of the system can be challenging if you're used to a system that automatically updates when new filters are applied

    I have used three property management softwares and know of others who have used additional softwares for managing properties. Buildium seems to be the best of all of them

    Yardi

    We have invested 5 years of setup, implementation and training on Voyager. It's doing a very good job for us and I feel we've only scratched the surface of its capabilities. Yardi support has been very responsive with very little down time. The training materials are great from Client Central

    Usability

    Buildium

    Once trained, I find that its usability is quite easy and comprehensive. If working on something I am less familiar with, I find that I can usually find the solution pretty quickly

    Yardi

    I'm coming from the perspective of a fairly tech-adept person, so I didn't find the system too hard to learn. That said, I do feel some of the buried menus and the system's own internal search feature could use some improvement, but I have that feeling about the vast majority of CRMs I've ever used. There may be a little bit of a struggle to onboard/train up someone who isn't used to this sort of system, but once up and going it should be smooth sailing.

    Support Rating

    Buildium

    I have been able to get through to support immediately and they have been awesome in quickly resolving issues. More importantly, their communication when there is an issue which might take some time to resolve surfaces. Getting updates and resolution are critical.

    Yardi

    The local office is very knowledgeable, however recently it seems that Yardi has begun to route calls offshore and the knowledge base there does not seem to be as strong as the USA based support centers. All customizations are done by offshore personnel, which presents issues in terms of the language barrier and time zone differences.

    If you are converting from another system, grouping your properties by subsidy type seemed to help us. We were able to focus on a half dozen properties at a time, rather than the entire portfolio.

    Alternatives Considered

    Buildium

    Appfolio is my favorite software, and they are constantly making improvements. Buildium is great if you don’t have a ton of property but is not as manageable for advanced accounting and resident information tracking. There are workarounds, but they do need to work on their ease of use for owners.

    Yardi

    Onesite was broken, a lot. Yardi Voyager has been a much more stable platform. We have been operational for 3 years now and I cannot say that we have had any software downtime in 3 Years. But with Onesite, it was common to be down at least once a month for something that was not working correctly.

    • Payments are more prompt due to options and communications.

    Yardi

    • We initially moved to Yardi from paper ledgers. This had a tremendous time-saving effect.
    • Product was confusing and required training for some of our older staff members.
    • Clients that used the product were initially hesitant to pay for the added cost, but with time were able to see the benefit to their software.
