I have used Yardi and MRI. Yardi is far superior to MRI and Yardi in constantly enhancing their product whereas MRI does not.

Yardi is not cheap though and they nickel and dime you for every feature you want that isn't part of their "core" product.
MRI just introduced a brand new interface. Not sure how much functionality was updated.

I used Yardi, switched to AppFolio. Night and day. Appfolio does everything, rolls out weekly updates, responds to questions/complaints much much faster, and is much more mobile friendly. Also takes care of leasing, advertising, signing leases, sending letters etc.
Yardi keeps track of work orders and accounting, but this much more full service. Feel free to ask me more questions if you need.
Seems like they have a pretty good product however they are missing one component which we need.

Look into remotelandlord. It's cloud based and has all the functionalities needed for a large management operation. Great bookkeeping and tracking.

That's the system we have now. The back-end is very limited. However, they do you have some nice features that you only find on some of the high systems.

Do you close your books every month?
Try running a RR for a date in the past run it again for the same date in a few weeks, tell me if it matches.
Do you run reports on cash or accrual. If accrual, how do book your vacancies and delinquencies?
Try running a BS comparing current period to last quarter.
Run a GL report on BS account.
Do you like the cash flow report?
I am not trying to bash this software. To the contrary, I think it is excellent for the price. Just making people aware that it is limited on the back- end.
