DUBAI, Oct. 22, 2014— Yardi announced today that Souq Extra LLC will manage its SouqExtra! centre portfolio through Yardi Voyager® 7S.
Established in 2007, Souq Extra LLC has developed five SouqExtra! centres across three distinct United Arab Emirates (UAE) markets, retaining 100% ownership of each centre and managing all retail, property and facility services directly. This strategy continues with the construction of SouqExtra! Dubai Silicon Oasis, opening in mid-2015.
“We retain a diverse Shareholder registry,” comments Ben Ganley, CEO at Souq Extra LLC. “This includes related companies of the Federal Government of the United Arab Emirates, the Government of Dubai, and distinguished private and institutional investors that uniquely integrate Sovereign governance and vision with the entrepreneurship of the private markets.”
“Voyager will undoubtedly cement our strategic foundation, supporting us in delivering the best places for our clients, investors, partners and communities.”
“We are very pleased that Souq Extra LLC selected Voyager to support its retail strategy in the Middle East,” comments Neal Gemassmer, vice president international at Yardi Systems. “This serves to demonstrate the scalability of our solutions and how we are focussed on helping to add value within specific vertical segments within the broader spectrum of property management in the Middle East.”
