Being a not for profit facility it was very important to find a company willing to work within our budget and a system that was user friendly. MRI was able to do both. -Mindy Ryan of Friendship Haven
Cleveland, Ohio (PRWEB) February 25, 2014
Friendship Haven, an Indiana-based affordable housing provider, was in need of a modern property management solution that could assist with their property portfolio. After reviewing competitive offerings and seeing MRI Software’s industry-leading Bostonpost Affordable Housing software in action, Friendship Haven opted to partner with the award-winning company.
“Being a not for profit facility it was very important to find a company willing to work within our budget and a system that was user friendly. MRI was able to do both,” explained Mindy Ryan of Friendship Haven. “I was very thankful MRI did not require the substantial upfront costs that their competitors do and their system is very user friendly. MRI’s reps worked with us on what we needed and didn’t need. They have worked with us every step of the way to make the transition as easy as possible and for that, I am truly grateful.”
Built from the ground up specifically for the affordable housing market, Bostonpost is a web-based software application for property management companies working with subsidy programs such as USDA, HUD, HOME, and Public Housing. The system handles compliance for any combination of affordable housing funding programs, significantly decreasing the administrative workload on property managers, and can even be used to manage conventional multifamily properties. Additionally, Bostonpost includes comprehensive invoice processing and maintenance tracking to ensure the financial accuracy of Friendship Haven’s data. In fact, in one easy-to-navigate application, the company will be able to automate, monitor, and streamline property management operations across the board.
“Bostonpost will not only ensure affordable housing compliance, but will also improve Friendship Haven’s facilities and maintenance processes,” said David Post, CEO at MRI Software. “Comprehensive maintenance and inspections tools are included in the Bostonpost platform, making it easy for Friendship Haven’s staff to ensure the property is kept in its best shape.”
Bostonpost additionally features a fully automated resident certification process, complete with a built in pass/fail reporting system that validates data as it is entered. Moreover, the solution is able to strictly pre-select eligible applicants based on the funding programs in place, and the property manager can set or change restrictions easily. With these features in mind, it is obvious that Bostonpost was designed from the start to handle the complex mix of funding programs that is common within today’s property management industry.
