Stratford Capital Group, LLC is a recognized leader in the multifamily investment industry with a particular focus on affordable housing and investments benefiting from Low-Income Housing Tax Credits.
Stratford began to outgrow the limitations of its proprietary data collection tool as its portfolio expanded year over year. For a while, the system worked well for their portfolio of 50 to 60 properties, with the Asset Management team manually collecting the data and storing it on a shared drive. As the business grew, Stratford required new technology to manage the process.
To better meet the needs of a quickly scaling organization, Stratford choose the Data Management Services solution from MRI Software to handle the process of collecting and managing their data. To complement this new system as more properties were added to their portfolio, they later implemented MRI’s Investment Central to better manage their investments.
We have nothing but good things to say about MRI’s Data Management Services and Investment Central. It feels like they are a true partner for our business.
