Accounts Payable function in a real estate office is usually a big source of inefficiencies due to paper intensive manually driven work-flows in AP. Yardi Genesis 2 automates and streamlines AP work-flows, bringing the entire approval process online. This is a major efficiency driver and helps reduce invoice processing costs and delays. Though the average number of clicks go up while processing an invoice, many fields such as vendor name, invoice date etc. are auto-populated (*in the full-service option) and even the secretarial or site staff can code invoices for Accounting to review.
There are multiple reports that can help you track financials, and operations closely. The financial reports include standard reports such as Balance Sheet, General Ledger, Trial Balance, Income Statement, Cash Flow Statement among others. Some of the unique reports include the Property Comparison report, Monthly Report pack for Owners, Delinquency report, Vacancy and Occupancy report and the Aging reports. Yardi Genesis 2 also has custom dashboards functionality that presents operational and leasing information visually.

The real estate accounting software by Yardi also has the ability to put a hold on individual invoices, and vendor accounts, and stop payments to vendors where insurances have expired.
All reports and necessary documents can be shared with owners through a special portal online. There is no need to search and manually share these important files.
Work order allocation and materials tracking regarding ongoing maintenance requests in a property can be managed easily through this software.
