MRI Software has won a silver Stevie® Award in the Large Computer Software Company of the Year category at the 16th Annual International Business Awards®! For the second year in a row, MRI Software is featured among a prestigious list of winners, and we could not be more thrilled to see our company name alongside such great organizations.
We’re also thrilled that one of the newest members of the MRI family, LEVERTON, has won a silver Stevie® Award in the same category! Working with the team at LEVERTON as partners over the past few years has been a joy, and we’re excited to bring all our talented professionals together into one award-winning organization.
We’re thankful to the International Business Awards for recognizing MRI Software based on our achievements in 2018. Last year, our revenue grew by 56% compared to 2017, bookings were up by a record 71%, and the number of new clients grew by 44%. In addition to this growth, we created 75 new technology integrations with partners and recorded 192 million data exchanges between clients and partners. We built upon the success of the open and connected ecosystem with 21 additions to our Partner Connect network and solidified our offerings in the US Affordable and Public Housing markets through the acquisitions of Happy Software, IPM Software, and TCAM Asset Management.
We also pushed the boundaries of real estate software on a global level. After acquiring CML Software and Thesaurus Technology in the UK, we established our Agency Solutions business, boosting the sales and lettings solutions we gained in 2017 from our acquisition of Qube Global Software. MRI Software solidified our standing in South Africa with the acquisition of PropSys, bringing all of its offerings under the MRI umbrella.
In 2018, we made huge strides in our global growth strategy to support our mission of providing the most comprehensive, flexible, open and connected technology platform in the industry. But we’re not done — 2019 has already seen several new additions to the MRI family, and we can’t wait to see what else the future holds!
