Cleveland Ohio (PRWEB) October 23, 2013
As part of their I.T. initiatives, Acadia Realty Trust, a self-managed and self-administered equity REIT in White Plains, New York, was looking to leverage cloud computing to meet the scalability and growth that the business demanded. After enjoying the high configurability of MRI Software’s product line, Acadia saw the value in utilizing MRI’s highly rated Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platform. By adding the solution, Acadia will strengthen their relationship with MRI and be able to focus on more business critical functions.
“One of our primary goals over the next 6-12 months is to continue to expand our mobile workforce by leveraging cloud technology,” said David Rodriguez, Vice President of Information Technology at Acadia. “This allows Acadia the flexibility to scale and expand to other markets and geographic locations. MRI's introduction of a SaaS model property management system enables us to work remotely and utilize mobile devices which is huge for companies that want to maintain a competitive advantage.”
With MRI SaaS, Acadia will be able to focus on the success and growth of their business instead of worrying about technology concerns. At MRI’s highly secure Tier III+ data centers, Acadia’s data will be protected by detailed back-up and disaster recovery plans with multiple redundancies in place, ensuring minimal downtime in the event of an emergency. Additionally, because MRI SaaS is hosted in the cloud rather than on-premise, their data will be accessible online from any location with Internet access.
“We are happy to expand our relationship with Acadia Realty to include MRI Software-as-a-Service,” said David Post, CEO of MRI Software. “We are looking forward to managing and protecting their critical information and records at one of our highly secure data centers.”
