ECHO Realty’s previous hosting environment was functional, but we wanted to take them to the next level of data management. - David Post, CEO of MRI Software
Cleveland, Ohio (PRWEB) June 06, 2013
Realizing inefficiencies in their budgeting process, ECHO Realty, LP, a full service developer, owner, and operator of commercial real estate, has expanded their relationship with MRI Software to include MRI Budgeting & Forecasting. In addition to this extension, ECHO saw the value in MRI’s award-winning Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution, and has opted to transfer the management of their data to this highly secured environment.
Previously, ECHO Realty relied solely on spreadsheets to build their budget, and were looking to modernize their property management process. After enjoying the functionality of MRI Enterprise Ledger and other commercial management solutions, ECHO wanted to automate their software as much as possible. Thus, they turned to Budgeting & Forecasting, which will significantly increase the accuracy of their expenditure calculations by utilizing complex reporting and analysis capabilities. The software will also integrate into ECHO’s existing MRI product suite, and apply the relevant considerations directly into ECHO’s annual budget.
“We are happy to empower ECHO Realty with Budgeting & Forecasting’s top-notch reporting abilities,” said David Post, CEO of MRI Software. “ECHO will be able to plan out impressively precise budgets with a much smaller time commitment.”
ECHO Realty was also impressed with MRI’s exceptional SaaS offering, and delegated the responsibility of their data management to MRI’s highly secure data center. MRI will host ECHO’s entire network of data and also provide recovery services in the event of a catastrophe or natural disaster. This transfer will allow ECHO to focus on running their business instead of worrying about network and server issues.
“ECHO Realty’s previous hosting environment was functional, but we wanted to take them to the next level of data management,” Post elaborated. “They will now enjoy a more secure exchange of information backed by MRI’s trained team of experts.”
