In order to be successful, real estate developers require a software solution that is both effective and cost-efficient. What is needed is a self-contained system that can simultaneously keep track of the front line and the bottom line. Our solution for real estate developers powered by Acumatica is a fully integrated, web-based, end-to-end solution that provides a comprehensive tool set delivering quick and accurate accounting and financial reporting for development, and commercial and residential property management.
For the commercial real estate (CRE) developer, our solution offers four features that comprise its keys to success:
- Project Control – Automatically captures the entire project cost and income activity at the cost-code level, and posts directly to the general ledger in real time.
- Commitment Management – Assists with controlling your costs, tracking retainage and preventing overpayments. Also tracks insurance certificates expirations.
- Loan Draw – Significantly reduces your loan draw preparation time while tracking your equity in the project. Also meets the unique reporting requirements of each lender.
- Project Reporting – Reduces your risk with our unique forecasting method that provides the estimated-cost-of-completion, at any point in the project life cycle.
Accountants and project managers must produce exceptional project reports. The accounting department needs to not be burdened with extra data requests — the managers need to have the data at their fingertips in order to make profitable decisions. The custom dashboards and custom reports provided by Acumatica meet this requirement.
The Project Variance Report provides a panoramic view of all aspects of your projects. Starting with budgets, continuing with commitments and costs and ending with estimated cost at completion. In addition, the report provides lending status and capital contributions as funding sources.
Using dynamic budgeting, commitment tracking and costing information, the system will calculate the estimated cost at completion when the project is halfway through, or even just a quarter complete. All of the relevant project information you need is viewable on a single report.
Our solution offers an integrated approach to real estate development software. From ongoing review of contractual commitments (contracts and PO’s) to the preparation of lender draw requests, you’ll have updated information at all times. The intuitive and integrated solution provides critical feedback while letting you control costs, track retention, prevent overpayments and monitor expired insurance certificates.
Our real estate development solution puts together, in one integrated package, features to let you control project funding as well as project costs. Since both are essential to how you operate your business, our solution makes sure that you can track them both.
Since lenders can sometimes require you to use their line items and categories, our solution lets you relate each of your cost categories to the appropriate lender category.
Having a business system that handles all aspects, from financial management to project control to office accounting, is crucial. Whether you need to see every fine detail, consolidate several entities into one financial statement, or produce an owners’ position in the portfolio, our solution serves you well. You control how financial reporting is done; the software doesn’t control you.
With our real estate development solution, convenience and ease of use are the foundation of the system’s design.
