MRI Software Highlights Cougar Software Acquisition With Sydney Event

Sydney, Australia

Over 40 clients from Australia’s most prominent real estate companies attended the recently held MRI Software event at the newly established MRI “Centre of Excellence” office in Sydney’s CBD Martin Place. The key purpose was to have MRI’s Senior Management share future strategies and client benefits of the recent acquisition of Cougar Software by MRI, as well as to showcase the latest MRI products, including MRI Budgeting & Forecasting, Version X, and the MRI MIX and MRI MAX platforms.

The event attracted local Interstate Management and International guests, including Brian Zrimsek (Chief Products Officer), John Ensign (Senior Vice President and General Counsel), Phil Trudeau (Vice President Global Sales) and Oren Rosen (Vice President of Investment Management Solutions) from MRI’s HQ in Cleveland, United States.

The agenda invited questions from the audience and sparked lively discussion with the focus on providing transparent product direction for both MRI and Cougar clients heading into 2015 and beyond.

“Cougar is a respected player in the Australia and New Zealand property management markets, and the perfect complement to MRI’s existing product and industry expertise,” said Stephen Wilson, MRI’s Managing Director for the Asia Pacific region. “The consolidated team expands our new Sydney Centre of Excellence to over 30 employees, which will uphold MRI’s reputation of solid customer service and provide a strong foundation for future growth.”

Following the formal part of the meeting, guests enjoyed refreshments and enthusiastically engaged in further discussion and networking activities. Judging by the feedback received from the meeting participants, the event was highly successful, allowing clients to better understand the benefits of the Cougar acquisition and look forward to having one consolidated MRI team working together to support them in this region.
