Hotel-Focused Real Estate Investment Firm Walker Reynolds Selects RealPage® Software for Performance Analysis and Decision Support


Will utilize RealPage solutions for investment accounting, reporting,
performance tracking and analysis

a leading global provider of software and data analytics to the real
estate industry, announces that real-estate investment firm Walker
Reynolds has chosen RealPage asset management solutions to support its
largely hotel-focused investment business.

"We looked at four other companies that offer portfolio management
solutions, but RealPage was far and away the most sophisticated, easy to
use and customizable," said Brett Rush, a managing member at Walker
Reynolds. "It also offers the most options not only for monitoring your
portfolio, but for data analytics and trend analysis. And we expect to
gain a lot of back office efficiency from it."

Rush said another significant advantage is integration between
RealPage's Investment Accounting solution (which the firm will also be
using) and its Property
Asset Management
(PAM) software. In 2016, RealPage introduced
specialized investment accounting software designed to provide clients a
single, centralized accounting platform for all functions related to
real estate investing, regardless of asset class.

"Walker Reynolds was very visionary in their selection process," said
Alan James, Senior Vice President of Investment Management, Accounting
and Commercial at RealPage. "The company recognized that they wanted
back office efficiency to scale their business, but that real estate
investing and management is run by data and reporting. PAM will be
paramount to their system strategy, and help them execute that strategy
by getting the right data in the hands of the right people."

Rush also praised the software's centralized access to data used in
decision making. "This software gives us a central location for all our
investment data so we can spend our time on analysis instead of busy
work like collecting and updating spreadsheets," he explained. "Our time
is too valuable to spend on gathering data rather than using it."
