Reaching new heights at MRI Ascend 2019 in Anaheim

By Chris Vroman

MRI Ascend and the open and connected ecosystem took Anaheim, California by storm last week! More than 1400 real estate industry professionals and 60 partners gathered at the Anaheim Convention Center to network with each other and explore what’s new with MRI Software. We were thrilled to pull back the curtain on several innovative solutions that will help MRI clients do more than just stay ahead of the curve, but also rise above it.

MRI users conferences have always stood as the living embodiment of the open and connected ecosystem, where our clients can leverage flexibility and choice to create the solution that works best for their business. This year, we were excited to unveil a record number of new solutions designed to help real estate organizations in a variety of ways.

This way to comprehensive and flexible real estate software solutions!

At MRI Ascend, we proudly announced MRI Application Gateway, which provides a single point of entry to Platform X. Through an app-based launch screen, users can securely access their MRI and third-party applications, bringing all of the solutions you love and use regularly into one familiar interface.

We also unveiled MRI Secure Sign, which enables clients to efficiently create and send real estate documents for signature with purpose-built integrations from within the MRI platform.
As businesses continue to move operations online, it’s more important than ever to control and protect digital documents and signed contracts.

MRI Living
The MRI Living suite now includes two new innovations: MRI Payments and MRI Lead Management. MRI Payments allows multifamily properties to handle multiple payment types, including online and check payments, through an integrated solution that delivers a complete prospect and resident experience. MRI Lead Management brings leading-edge technology for tracking and engaging potential residents into the MRI Living suite of residential solutions to give owners and operators the ability to manage prospects from lead to lease. Today’s renters expect to be treated like people, not metrics, and the MRI Living suite enables residential property managers to take a customer-centric approach and improve the renter experience.

MRI @ Work
In the same way that MRI Living helps residential property managers meet the needs of their market, MRI @ Work houses all of the products that will help commercial property professionals rise above their industry challenges.

One of our newest products is made possible through the power of artificial intelligence. MRI Lease Intelligence brings AI-powered lease abstraction into the MRI @ Work suite of commercial solutions through the integration of Leverton and MRI. Acquired by MRI in July, Leverton enables commercial property owners, operators and occupiers to efficiently extract lease data and analyze it to gain insights. This solution ensures data accuracy by directly integrating MRI Lease Intelligence with MRI property management solutions.

Congratulations to the 2019 MRI Innovation Awards Winners!

At MRI, we think our partners and clients are pretty great, and we’re proud to be working together to drive transformation and openness in the real estate industry.

The future of real estate software is here

MRI Ascend is a living, breathing representation of the open and connected partner ecosystem that we strive to create for our clients. It’s an honor to do business with some of the most innovative and forward-thinking real estate organizations across the globe. While this year’s Ascend users conference was a huge success, we hope to see even more of our partners and clients in San Diego next year on October 25-28, 2020!

Don’t just stay ahead of the curve – rise above it!
