Said Haider talks how Yardi’s powerful solutions benefit all – from landlords to tenants
Artificial Intelligence and IoT-Technology is constantly evolving and making our lives easier. Said Haider, regional director of Middle East sales for real estate technology provider Yardi, believes that new technologies such as artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things (IoT) are also changing the real estate landscape. Business models are changing, mainly because of digitisation and advancing capabilities of applications, Haider said. Yardi is investing heavily in real estate technology, also known as proptech, developing innovative solutions to have a major influence on the industry.
Yardi designs, develops and supports software solutions for real estate owners and managers. Its products are available for nearly every real estate vertical, including commercial, residential, investment management, homeowners associations, student housing, construction and more. Another area where technology is making a big impact is sustainability. Yardi has developed a platform called Yardi Pulse, a suite of energy solutions that handle utility billing and submetering, energy management and energy usage automation. Pulse helps Yardi clients achieve environmental goals and reduce energy costs.
Haider explains Yardi’s support for the real estate sector in an interview with Property Weekly.
How do Yardi’s solutions support the property sector?
