Talking specifically about how Shaftesbury Capital has worked with MRI Software, Tom explains,
“MRI and Shaftesbury Capital have had a long standing relationship…it has given us access to the wider MRI ecosystems of products and partners. During 2020, pandemic notwithstanding, we completed the implementation of MRI Investment Modelling, a strategic planning and modelling solution, and an MRI partner product from Insight software. Both have made quite a considerable difference to the to the way we work, particularly in our back of house processes. I’m personally proud of how our teams have responded to bringing in new technologies while working remotely and to the way MRI have supported that.”
