“We are pleased to extend our long-time partnership with MRI Software into the residential sector,” said Geoff Bather, Director and Head of Property Management Finance at Savills. “We already rely on MRI’s Version X platform to operate our commercial properties, and we could think of no better partner to support our growing residential business. Additionally, the ability to operate our commercial and residential properties – including PRS and block management – from a single, integrated software platform will streamline our operations and provide greater visibility into performance.”
Savills sought a comprehensive and open solution that can address the needs of the U.K. market and support future growth in other regions, while providing the flexibility to integrate proprietary and third-party software.
