Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) May 2, 2008
Whitestone REIT, a self-managed REIT (Real Estate Investment Trust) which owns and operates retail, office and warehouse properties in the Southwest U.S., and Ascendix Technologies, developers of Real Estate Advantage, announced today that Whitestone REIT selected Real Estate Advantage to fully leverage their existing Microsoft Dynamics CRM implementation.
Whitestone REIT originally selected Microsoft® Dynamics™ CRM as a general-purpose CRM across the enterprise. "As we progressed, we realized that Whitestone REIT needed a state-of-the-art complement to our existing Yardi Voyager Property Management solution," said Ted Zeck, Vice President of Information Systems. "We plan to assimilate Voyager data into Real Estate Advantage, affording all of our departments with a 360-degree view of property, lease and tenant facts, figures and communication. Our ultimate goal is to provide unparalleled customer service that will reap rewards for our tenants, our investors and our employees." Zeck added, "The training and service from Ascendix have been very professional and targeted for our industry."
"We're very pleased to have Whitestone REIT as a new client," stated Todd Terry, Managing Partner and CTO of Ascendix. "We look forward to their partnership and working with their team as we continue to evolve our solution for the real estate industry. We look to our clients to help drive Real Estate Advantage enhancements. "
