MRI is a leading developer of innovative real estate management software solutions for the global real estate industry.
Colliers International works with its clients to create wealth by managing properties, leasing space, and offering expert advice on investment purchases and development.
The Baltimore office of Colliers uses MRI’s solutions for their property management, corporate accounting, facility management, and in their engineering services group.
