IDC MarketScape Names MRI Software a Leader in Worldwide SaaS and Cloud-Enabled Lease Accounting and Administration Applications

Solon, Ohio – October 19, 2023MRI Software, a global leader in real estate solutions, has been recognised as a Leader in the IDC MarketScape: Worldwide SaaS and Cloud-Enabled Lease Accounting and Administration Applications 2023 Vendor Assessment.

The recently released report from IDC, a leading provider of global IT research and advice, evaluates vendors, ultimately positioning them in one of four IDC MarketScape categories: Participants, Contenders, Major Players and Leaders. Placement is determined by the vendor’s performance when measured against certain market criteria, with surveys, interviews, public information and end-user experiences factoring into the scoring.

According to the IDC MarketScape report, “The roller-coaster ride of the past 36 months has changed how businesses operate regarding lease management. Many have significantly reduced their operational footprint, while others have expanded their needs for space. It all depends on the industry. As a result, some businesses are saddled with leases for spaces and items that they will not or cannot use in the short term. This complex predicament has been further complicated by the regulatory changes associated with GASB 87 and ASC 842, which promise to add unprecedented complexity to lease management.”
