Yardi announced today that innovative new asset management tools for providing better tenant and resident service are available to property managers with Yardi Advanced Maintenance™.
Yardi Advanced Maintenance is a comprehensive asset management software suite built into the browser-agnostic Yardi Voyager® software-as-a-service property management and accounting platform. Property managers can schedule, track and manage all preventative, routine and emergency maintenance from desktops or mobile devices. The solution is adaptable to any property type, including commercial, multifamily, affordable, senior, military, condominium, retail, office and industrial.
Yardi Advanced Maintenance automatically tracks and records technicians’ maintenance actions in Yardi Voyager, eliminating labor and potential errors associated with duplicate data entry. Additional features include a location tracker that facilitates rapid responses to emergency maintenance requests by helping managers match technicians in the field with assets needing attention.
Yardi Advanced Maintenance includes Maintenance Manager Mobile, which enables maintenance managers to easily track technician location and status, dispatch work orders and monitor productivity from an Android™ tablet or iPad®. With this mobile capability, technicians receive their work orders much faster resulting in more rapid responses, and personnel resources are maximized.
Clients that adopt Yardi Advanced Maintenance receive additional products for managing assets at no extra cost, including Yardi Inspection™, Yardi Fixed Assets™ and Yardi Inventory Control™. These solutions combine with Yardi Advanced Maintenance to create a fully integration solution for preventing equipment breakdowns with regular inspections, tracking depreciation and disposition of inventory and fixed assets, and providing physical and financial control of assets from acquisition to final disposition.
“Yardi Advanced Maintenance can prevent equipment breakdowns by automating maintenance schedules,” said Terri Dowen, senior vice president of sales for Yardi. “The solution’s dedicated, tablet-based app also helps property managers maintain strong relations with tenants and residents by allowing them to coordinate quick responses to ad hoc maintenance requests from any location—their office, their commercial or residential properties, or anywhere else.”
