Canapen has been a Yardi Enterprise client since 1999, with a max of 28 users, 4 million feet of managed commercial space, and 1000 residential apartment units. We partnered with Lynx Systems to implement a new installation of Yardi Voyager 7S starting in July 2016, going live January 2017 with the core system plus PayScan. With their expert assistance, we were able to Go Live on time, on budget, and confident in our data and processes. Our implementer brought a wealth of in-depth industry expertise and product experience to our efforts, and dealt with the members of our team at their individual technical and comfort levels.
The Dorchester Corporation
The Dorchester Corporation (www.tdccanada.ca) is a private value-added real estate and oil & gas investment company. The company has assets in both Canada and the United States and operates out of offices in Toronto, Montreal, Chicago and Bridgeport, IL. The company has used the services of Lynx since 2006, initially to complete a search and successful implementation of new management information software, and subsequently over the year to assist with design and implementation of a co-located private cloud / virtual desktop infrastructure and cloud based document management solution. Lynx has proven itself valuable to Dorchester, and has been our primary IT resource for over the past 10 years. We would have no issue in recommending Lynx for software implementation or IT management.

Executive VP & CFO
Since our initial introduction in 2006, we have always been impressed with the level of service and expertise delivered by Lynx. The team is a mixed blend of expertise, allowing us the opportunity to trouble shoot issues by having the right personnel assigned to us each step of the way. We are sometimes limited in our approach to a process or solution but having staff at Lynx who have either seen or developed solutions for another client, has meant a smoother transition for us in adopting a fix to our request. The staff has been quite responsive in handling our issues with a turnaround time that still impresses us. What we really appreciate is the opportunity to discuss options with this team and create a workable and timely decision, to move forward on the changes we foresee.
Perimeter Development Corporation
Lynx Systems has been our Yardi consultant since 2013. They were instrumental in our successful Yardi conversion and implementation, including Commercial, Residential and GL modules. We later contracted Lynx to implement CAM Recoveries, and more recently they completed a Yardi Construction implementation for us.
These were significant initiatives for our business, and we have found the Lynx staff to be extremely knowledgeable, diligent, and responsive to our needs. They are a pleasure to deal with and will continue to work with them and recommend them for the support of Yardi software.
SEB Realty Corp
During my career I’ve been privileged to work with countless “technology experts/consultants”. The best consultants were always honest and solution oriented. The team at Lynx always worked this way which is why we work so well together.
Farr Commercial Real Estate Services, Inc.
It is my pleasure to recommend Lynx Systems for accounting and lease administration software support. I have used them both in my 3 million square foot third party commercial management company as well as a smaller start up. Not only do they know their “stuff,” but they truly care about their clients, making themselves available as needed to solve problems. My principal support person has just about become a member of my staff in the sense of understanding and addressing my and my clients’ needs. In this newer start up, I have less on site staff. Lynx fills the gap keeping my property accounting functioning at top capability.

We have been a client of Lynx for some time and have always been very happy with the services they provide. The staff is knowledgeable, professional and responsive to our needs.

[Working with Lynx,] we got everything we asked for and more.It’s been a good experience. It’s obvious that there is a good technical staff that they have expertise in the products they support. Everyone that I’ve worked with there tends to approach situations and resolve situations, not only from a “this is the technology” perspective, but from a “how does your business operate” perspective, which of course is valuable, so we don’t take what you know of the technical side and figure out how that translates to our business. Lynx kind of helps us do that.
The Lynx Staff is very knowledgeable. They were extremely knowledgeable. I don’t know what your scale is, but way up there. They were very responsive, timely, very courteous, and extremely thorough.
Al Stober Construction Ltd.
It is my privilege to write a reference letter for Lynx Systems in regard to both its methodology approach and the quality of its consultants. Implementing a software package can be a difficult process with many associated risks. The Lynx team helped us address the risks and positioned us for a successful implementation. It is not only important to take the appropriate steps when selecting a software vendor, but to have an unbiased partner you trust help guide you through the process.
I highly recommend Lynx as a trusted partner for all software projects.
Eastman Management Corporation
The support is especially impressive [at Lynx]. When we have an issue, we email a brief description & typically get an email response, same day. Often, if we can clearly document our situation in the email, a solution is presented right then & there; but if that doesn’t fix the problem your staff are very courteous about connecting & walking us through step-by-step. Another thing that I’m not used to is that your staff seems genuinely concerned about solving the long-term issue as well as a quick fix, often following up the next day.
Domus Student Housing Inc.®
Our system assessment and training from Lynx Systems was very successful. We covered many topics, our team found the consultant engaging, and we received answers to questions about the Yardi product. Since the assessment, we have expanded our use of the program.
Lynx Systems has been our outsourced Yardi support solution for almost two years. An amazing knowledge base, the Lynx team often has the answers to our questions immediately on the phone. The timeliness of their support is beyond our expectations.
Alt Property Management Ltd.
Lynx Systems has been our outsourced Yardi support solution for over a year. They have assisted me with stabilizing our current operations, troubleshooting accounting and functionality problems, and managing services like deposit interest. Their experienced team of professionals will guide you through your daily business processes and how they relate to Yardi.
Esam Construction Limited
After going live with Yardi, we were looking for guidance on how to ensure our Yardi environment was optimized and our team was comfortable with the product. Lynx Systems conducted a system assessment and corrected our Yardi configuration. Their help with implementing features and providing training gave us the confidence to use the system and advanced options.
J.D.N. Property Management
During our Yardi implementation, we determined that we needed additional support and training. Lynx Systems conducted a series of training webinars and supported us with any questions and problems we had. They were so wonderful to deal with, we have decided to use them for ongoing monthly support.
I want to thank the Lynx Systems Team for all of your hard work!
Select Strategies Realty
Lynx Systems has been a great resource for our real estate company. Its response time and knowledge of networking and databases make them indispensable to our business. We never have to worry about downtime, availability, or our employees’ ability to access our data. Without Lynx, my IT staff would have to double in size to remain as productive.
Lynx Systems and [their consultant], created custom software that automated a critical process in our business. This work was effective because Lynx had an understanding of how different people in our organization interacted with the process, and a thorough understanding of the technology options. This allowed Lynx to anticipate and avoid problems before they became an issue for us. We were very pleased with the work completed, and we found our consultant to be both diligent and knowledgeable while delivering a solution that was on time and on budget.
First Service Residential
First Service Residential is a world leader in residential property management services. Lynx System’s lead consultant, along with other members of the Lynx team created custom software to interface two critical systems within our business. Lynx worked with multiple departments within our organization to deliver a solution that fit our needs.
This project has greatly improved communications within the organization and augmented the information technology experience for both Property Managers and Unit Owners. The project was delivered both on time and on budget. We would be happy to work with Lynx again in the future or recommend them to others.

Lynx helped us with a technology assessment of our client accounting needs and the execution of a company-wide RFP. They were instrumental in helping us to understand our current landscape across multiple acquisitions and developed criteria that mapped to our future operational strategy of consolidating legacy systems down to one enterprise-wide platform. The level of knowledge, expertise and professionalism demonstrated by the team at Lynx was exceptional. They have deep knowledge of the real estate and property management industry and the technology players within it. We continue to partner with Lynx when we need insight pertaining to our client accounting needs as we feel they bring great value in this area.
