At the same time, Saxony learned of another accounting issue that needed to be solved. The client was utilizing two accounting systems – QuickBooks for corporate entities, and Yardi Voyager for operating entities. They wanted to reduce software costs and streamline operations by moving accounting solely into Yardi. The challenge was that moving corporate entities to Yardi would require consolidating five separate QuickBooks databases.
Challenging, but not impossible.
Saxony’s technical team mapped out a plan for how to, first, consolidate the data from QuickBooks and, second, migrate it out to Yardi Voyager. As it turns out, not all of the data from QuickBooks needed to be migrated to Yardi in order to deliver the results the client needed. Saxony was able to identify the data that did need to migrate, package it, and execute the migration. We were then able to develop a training program necessary to make sure that staff who were previously used to QuickBooks could easily adapt to Yardi Voyager.
