Yardi Breeze Simplified Property Management

5.0 7 months ago

Pros:

Before switching to Yardi, I used Excel and QuickBooks to manage all properties and payments. Yardi Breeze has streamlined property management; I easily keep track of tenants and leases, maintenance requests, expenses, and vendors. And the best part is that I can do it all from anywhere! Whether I'm in the office or the field, everything is in one place.

Cons:

Yardi is continuously updating to provide the best features to its users. If there is ever something I think could improve, there is a feature to give feedback, and Yardi's engineers take every suggestion into account to continue to deliver the best for the users.

Yardi Breeze

4.0 2 years ago

Comments: As an accountant, my overall experience has been pretty uneven. When I'm trying to make a journal entry or reconcile a bank account, I find myself wishing my client was using QuickBooks. But when I'm recording an inter-entity transaction or looking at CAM charges, I'm grateful for Yardi. I just hope there is a unit within Yardi that's focused on developing the accounting side of the Breeze software, because overall it really is not up to par with respect to the rest of the industry.

Pros:

Easy to list properties online for potential residents to find. Easy to set up online payment for residents. Customer support has been responsive and helpful. Some nice, innovative features on the property management side of the software.

Cons:

The accounting side of the software is pretty weak and clunky compared to competitors. There's no way to set up bank feeds, so cash reconciliations are 100% manual. The way banks are paired with GL accounts is convoluted and difficult to set up and understand. You can attach documents to payables and receivables (great!) but not to general journal entries (why not?). There is no way to customize basic financial reports in the way you would in software like QuickBooks. Customer support chat feature doesn't work with my company but other companies' chat features (e.g. Intuit) work just fine. Navigation is clunky - it often takes several clicks to get where you need to go. There is a "Favorites" feature that allows you to create your own list of frequently visited areas in the software, but that in and of itself is pretty clunky and confusing, and I shouldn't have to set up favorites in well-designed software. I've had weird errors here and there that customer service couldn't explain and that were solved using a silly workaround (such as removing a couple of lines from a journal entry and putting them into a separae entry). There is no way to "hard close" your books for a given period, so there is nothing stopping a user from posting transactions into a closed period, so if you're a company that needs to get an audit, don't use Yardi. Overall, the accounting side of this software feels like a beta test - it's pretty good, but it's not quite fully baked.

Yardi Breeze Response

Hi Adam, Thank you for your review. We appreciate your comprehensive feedback and hope you continue to enjoy Breeze's marketing, leasing and property management functionality, as well as our customer support. In the meantime, we're constantly making improvements to our platform. That's one reason we came out with Breeze Premier earlier this year. We'll follow up with you directly, but in short, the accounting functionality you identified is missing is in fact available in Breeze Premier. Attachments to journal entries are available in Breeze and Breeze Premier, and auto-matching for bank reconciliations, custom reporting and the ability to hard close your books are available in Breeze Premier. Our customer service experts would be happy to troubleshoot why live chat is not working for you; it's a great, free feature and we want you to be able to take advantage of it. Hope this helps! Sincerely, Amy Varbel, Director Yardi Breeze [email protected]

User friendly but missing many basic features

3.0 3 weeks ago New

Comments: Frustrating to say the least. Especially I just spent 2 hours to get ahold.

Pros:

It is easy to use, which is great since the on boarding process does go into detail how to use the system. You teach yourself by watching video. E-payment works as excepted,

Cons:

We came from Yardi Gensis- the software was from 1996 i believe and had all the basic features listed below are some that a system from 1996 had that breeze does not. Reports- You cannot pull a report with all your tenant information, in order to export all my tenants information , Unit reports- There is not a report that you can see the unit type along with the unit AdHoc reports- Breeze added this as a new feature- but it is definitely not ready to be released. EX: They have a great feature which you enter the tenants vehicle information. BUT you can only access it from the tenants page. So if you wanted to search a car type or plate # you cannot. They added a AdHoc to help with this issue, BUT you can not sort for current/past/ future. DOES NOT HAVE OCCUPANCY REPORTS- Vacancy report- you will enter a time from lets say for 6 months but the vacancy report only pulls info from the last month you selected. But it doesn’t tell you that, we caught it after almost 2 years so we were reporting the wrong information. *** These are features Gensis did not offer but I am disappointed by. Email from Breeze- you cannot create a signature Tenant statements- You can send tenants a statement for outstanding balances via email, but you can only send them from the Admin( usually the owner) or the property not the user. Editing a payment error- even before closing batch you can not edit, multistep to delete. Support- the chats knowledge is basically limited to help section

They're awesome when Live Chat is available

4.0 3 months ago

Comments: Their suggestions feature that goes to programming is questionable. . . I haven't seen any changes that I've suggested actually go through. They still haven't fixed the HUD recertifications security deposit problems. That's a huge concern.

Pros:

Live chat - when they are available they are amazing for the most part. I have only had one or two bad experiences with an employee who wasn't familiar with the issues I was dealing with.

Cons:

There are glitches, and user errors that I can't always take care of without live chat help. They're not always available when I need them.

Yardi Breeze Premier is a great starting point

5.0 7 months ago

Comments: I'm personally on the financial side of the company but have many years in Operations as well. Breeze has been perfect for our growing company. We have been able to efficiently run reports and maintain our properties on a daily basis. Our teams were able to learn the software easily as well.

Pros:

Most of us at the company had previously used Yardi Voyager. As our company is still growing, Yardi Breeze Premier was a great point for us to start. There are many similarities to Voyager, so it was very easy to pick up. It had been some time since I had set up a property, but it was extremely easy in Breeze. The Help Center is amazing and videos are extremely helpful as well. Highly recommend!

Cons:

There are some items that are not a part of Yardi Breeze that are in Voyager. This did not hinder us from being to complete what we needed, just added a few extra steps. Overall though the cons are extremely minimal.
