SAP ERP

SAP is an extremely integrated system. Not all companies are ready for this. Many are so used to having systems that require a lot of batch processing, giving kind of an extra cushion to allow for errors or mistakes. SAP is a live system, meaning that when you commit or transact something, it triggers the integration among all modules that touch whatever the transaction is for. An example is allowing SAP to generate purchasing documents based on the scheduled demand for production. Say someone puts in a work order and by mistake, fat fingers an extra zero on the desired quantity. This may cause SAP to purchase WAY more raw materials than you need. This is a great feature, but it can also come back to hurt you if not controlled properly.

Yardi Voyager

Yardi is very well suited to evaluating the property management aspect of a real estate asset. It is best used as a tool for budgeting and expense management. One of the most challenging aspects of asset management is being able to budget for property managers correctly. Yardi makes this process much more simple. Yardi, however, is not as useful when it comes to modelling unique real estate assets. There is very little simulation that the program offers.

Pros

SAP ERP

  • Integration of functions within the organization (example: warehouse releasing and inventory management with finance costing and logistics)
  • Security features are on point. Clear segregation of duties can be achieved by assigning access rights based on least privilege principle
  • Can be easily learned.
  • Roles assigned to users can be customized.

Yardi Voyager

  • Reporting in Yardi is really strong, especially the financial reporting.
  • Yardi also is good at versatility when it comes to finding information - you can locate data in many ways and output in many forms.
  • Yardi is pretty seamless with allowing you to switch from property to property.
Sondrah Laden | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

SAP ERP

  • High cost of licensing, implementation & maintenance.
  • It gets complex when companies try to implement their existing business processes to Standard SAP provided business processes if it differs.
  • It is not for small/medium size businesses
  • The complete implementation process may take several years. Usually, companies take core modules of SAP ERP & implement those first.

  • Navigating can be a little difficult at times. You definitely need training to find what you are looking for, and the many capabilities are buried within the many modules.
  • I wish it were more seamless to import data from Excel rather than keying it all in.
  • It has a few minor technical difficulties when multiple users are working on the same thing and does not warn you that multiple people are accessing the same thing.

The cost of SAP as an ERP is quite high and the switching costs associated with ERP systems are even higher. That being said moving from one ERP to another only happens once in a great while for large organizations. Those switching costs include retraining, IT hardware requirements, outside consultants and more

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

After really grasping that Voyager is an accounting package, with a property management wrapper written around it, the work flow makes sense.

While an international company such as Yardi can provide an extensive amount of support resources there can be times when an issue we are experiencing does not get resolved in a timely manner as we may be the only client reporting it.

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

SAP ERP

SAP was found to be better suited for the manufacturing nature of our organization's business and provides robust process integrations across production, supply chain, order management, material master and inventory management. Although the user experience aspect was less than desirable, the business process consolidation outweighed this shortcoming. The cost of implementation and maintenance was higher for SAP.

Yardi Voyager

We have always utilized Yardi as our accounting system. We did, however update from Yardi Genesis to Yardi Voyager several months and have experienced first-hand the many advantages to conducting the update. Voyager has enabled us to elevate the level of reporting we provide to property owners regarding the financial performance of their asset

Return on Investment

SAP ERP

  • The Coca-Cola bottlers use a multi-tenant environment, and that helps their bottom line as they share a single instance.
  • Integration back to sales enables the Bottles to be more efficient and saves costs that relate to integration to 3rd party sales applications.
  • Reduces the number of 3rd party applications, which saves on operating costs.
Domenic Vetro | TrustRadius Reviewer

Yardi Voyager

  • We have seen significant efficiency increases and cost savings since moving to Yardi from an old paper-based tracking system.
  • We estimate a 5 year return on investment after implementation costs, and ongoing maintenance.
  • We have seen the ability to re-align our staffing with the efficiency of the software. No longer do we spend hours hunting through paper files.
