Industry First: A Centralized Portfolio Reporting and Analysis and Platform Addressing All Asset Types
RealPage Asset and Investment Management (AIM) aggregates and clearly presents property performance and valuation data to owners, asset managers, investors, and operators.
Until now, pulling together data across a diverse portfolio in a form suitable for analyzing performance, valuation, cash flow, and other metrics has involved a confusing, time-wasting jumble of software solutions and manual processes. Now, for the first time, there’s a software suite that automates, speeds and streamlines the process, delivering clearly-presented data for decision making to owners, asset managers, partners, operators, and other stakeholders.
RealPage’s recently-introduced Asset and Investment Management (AIM) platform works across multifamily, retail, commercial, storage, industrial, office, senior living, student housing, and hospitality assets, so you don’t need various software solutions and spreadsheets to generate the portfolio data you depend on. It incorporates six RealPage solutions: Portfolio Asset Management (PAM), Foundation Enterprise Data Warehouse, Portfolio Investment Management (PIM), Performance Analytics with Benchmarking (PAB), Business Intelligence (BI), FUEL (for valuation and forecasting). Everything shares the same user-friendly interface.
“The AIM platform is going to be huge for managers who depend on property performance and valuation data for their decision making”, says RealPage Senior Vice President Asset & Investment Management Damien Georges. “It’s the first comprehensive answer for evaluating properties for purchase or disposition, identifying operational and financial weak spots, benchmarking internally or against peer properties, looking at cash flow and debt, or even at more granular operational metrics such as marketing performance or leasing velocity. And because it works across all asset types, you don’t need separate systems.”
Georges says AIM will be a dramatic time-saver for companies owning and managing real estate portfolios. “The data has traditionally trickled into asset managers in various forms, some of it long after the fact, and often they have had to wrangle the data to get it in a usable form,” he explains. “AIM automatically aggregates the data from across the portfolio and reports it in a clear, standardized way, so it’s at the fingertips of decision-makers as they do their jobs. And it’s current data rather than months old.”
“It takes a reporting burden off of operational managers as well,” he adds. “Their job is fine-tuning operations for maximum profit and asset value, not pulling data together. Their software isn’t designed to aggregate and deliver data for asset managers and their analysts, so it’s not only a burden on them to do it, but the end product is far less than optimal for the managers. They often spend a significant portion of their time working with spreadsheets and other tools to mold the data for use in their particular jobs instead of actually using it for analysis.”
Georges says that despite the exciting prospect of finally having data presented to them in a usable form, asset managers sometimes need to be convinced they can still manipulate the data as needed, or even put it into Excel. “They’ve been wrangling data for so long that it has become part of their job, so part of promoting the adoption of AIM is convincing the managers that they can still do what they want to with the data; it’s just coming to them in a structured and accurate format that it wasn’t before, saving them a ton of time.”
