The company has participated in several User Group Sessions to offer ideas and suggestions for creating the next level of budgeting module within MRI. Some of their proposed advances included the ability to have additional control over loading expenses, loading and re-loading leases, easier reforecast functionality, and more user friendly functions that minimize training. During the product demonstration at the IUC, they were pleased to see many of their business needs put into practice, which was a deciding factor in the determination to purchase MRI Budgeting & Forecasting.

“When I saw the completed product at the 2012 MRI International Users Conference I was thrilled to see so many of our ideas in the program,” explained Karen Blake of Steiner + Associates. “The announcement that the Budgeting and Forecast solution was built directly into the existing data structure of MRI Financials made the decision to migrate over from Foresight very easy. We are looking forward to having a fresh, user-friendly, and intuitive solution while continuing to benefit from the flexibility through individual client customizations that MRI allows.”

With MRI’s new Budgeting & Forecasting solution, Steiner + Associates will be able to fulfill the business-critical need to have multiple associates working in the same report at the same time. Additionally, the program will leverage previous budgets and current data found in the MRI General Ledger, providing the property manager with the ability to analyze data from multiple sources simultaneously and produce highly-accurate financial reports. Moreover, the program runs on an easy to use web-based interface, empowering the customer to quickly navigate within the software.
