MRI Software Brings Next-Generation Public Housing Solution and Expertise to NAHRO National Conference


MRI to Lead Educational Session and Highlight Future Vision for Public Housing

ATLANTA – Oct. 24, 2018 MRI Software LLC, a global leader in real estate software solutions, today announced its plans to showcase its public housing solutions and lead a speaking session at the NAHRO National Conference. MRI has built its public housing offerings and knowledge base in the past year using the industry expertise gained with three strategic acquisitions that the company is now leveraging to transform the industry. MRI will highlight these developments at the NAHRO National Conference at the Hyatt Regency in Atlanta, October 25-27.

MRI’s acquisitions of Tenmast Software, HAB Inc. and HAPPY Software, combined with the company’s robust accounting and financial management solutions, deep property management expertise and scale, uniquely position MRI to provide the public housing sector with previously unmatched innovation. Already, MRI clients have a higher average PIC score – a HUD compliance metric – than any other company’s clients, and MRI serves nearly 35 percent of U.S public housing authorities (PHAs).

MRI recently previewed its new public housing platform for clients during select sessions at its International Users Conference (IUC). These public housing sessions, which included presentations on product development and vision, software best practices and a HUD-led update on its new cloud-based information center and inspections standards, drew nearly 250 attendees. These face-to-face client interactions allowed MRI to help users better understand the next-generation changes it has in store while collecting direct feedback and strengthening its relationships.

“We were already excited about the new solution, and after getting the opportunity to see it in person at MRI’s users conference, that anticipation has only increased,” said Channie Butler, Business Analyst, King County Housing Authority. “Everything is at your fingertips, the dashboards provide a modern feel, and it’s easy to find what you’re looking for. As part of the user working group, we appreciate MRI giving us the forum to share feedback and opinions, and we plan to continue our role in helping MRI make the best public housing platform available.”

“As our recent acquisitions and investments illustrate, MRI is intent on revolutionizing software for public housing. The feedback from clients has only reinforced our belief that this is an industry ready for modernization” said David Carner, Senior Vice President of Residential Solutions at MRI Software. “The combination of Tenmast, HAB and HAPPY’s solution sets and industry expertise with MRI’s own experience and resources is truly unmatched in the industry. We’ve been getting fantastic client guidance in our development process, including at our recent users conference, and we’re excited to give PHAs improved ability to manage properties, connect with tenants, simplify accounting processes and more, all while maintaining HUD compliance.”

MRI Software will exhibit its public housing solutions at NAHRO in Booth 231. Additionally, Mark Lewis, product manager at MRI, will lead a session titled “Implementing and Utilizing SAFMR” on Thursday, October 25, from 10:15 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. The session will cover frequently asked questions as PHAs implement Small Area Fair Market Rent requirements and includes PHA case studies demonstrating successful implementation of the requirements.
