Cleveland, OH (PRWEB) June 27, 2013
After experiencing the additional functionality and ease-of-use of RentPayment’s MRI Tenant Connect integration, MRI Software is pleased to announce an expanded business relationship with RentPayment to include MRI Resident Connect for multifamily. Clients utilizing MRI’s multifamily portal solution will now enjoy several added benefits as a result of this enhancement:
•Reduced operating costs / process automation – MRI Resident Connect automates the rent collection process so clients can focus on more important activities instead of the time-consuming and labor-intensive process of collecting manual rent payments.
•Improved fund availability – Electronic credit and debit card payments through the portal make funds available almost immediately, rather than the traditional five to seven days it can take to receive a paper check in the mail, manually post the transaction to the general ledger, and deposit the check at the bank.
•Increased resident satisfaction / reduced delinquencies – Online rent payments are available 24/7 via the portal, offering greater flexibility and effectively extending normal office hours. In addition, offering the option of card payments can help reduce delinquencies because residents can better budget their expenses according to their monthly income, and also have the option to “set it and forget it” with recurring payments.
“With all the positive experiences we’ve had with Tenant Connect, it was the obvious choice to integrate RentPayment’s functionality into our residential portal as well,” explained David Post, CEO of MRI Software. “We are excited to offer our multifamily clients all the payment functionality and convenience that our commercial customers currently enjoy through our MRI Resident Connect solution.”
“We are thrilled to expand our successful partnership with MRI,” said Tom Villante, Chairman at YapStone. “By working with us on payments, MRI is able to focus on creating a best-of-breed resident portal experience, while ensuring customers receive the most secure, most innovative payment solution in the market. We look forward to continuing to grow our relationship with MRI and its customers.”
