CLEVELAND, OH - MRI Software LLC, a leading developer of innovative real estate management and investment software solutions for the global real estate industry, announced that it has acquired Realty DataTrust Corporation, the holding company for VaultWare. Through this acquisition, MRI expands its portfolio of market-leading offerings in property management and accounting by adding a best-of-breed solution in online leasing.
VaultWare is the leading solution for consumer-focused apartment marketing and leasing for the multifamily market. The software helps property managers reach and communicate with apartment hunters online, pre-qualify prospects, and convert applicants into tenants. Additionally, applicants can check availability of apartment units and reserve specific units online, which streamlines the apartment search and leasing process. VaultWare’s versatile mobile solutions not only support mobile device compatible websites, but also enable property leasing staff to access inventory, property photos, videos, and site plans from an Apple iPad while giving tours of a property. In addition, VaultWare offers vacancy and rental rate data to apartment owners, marketing executives, and apartment brokers for business decisions. In the past year, approximately 15 million unique apartment availability inquiries were made using the VaultWare solution.
“I am thrilled to welcome VaultWare and its valued customers to the MRI Software family,” said David Post, Chief Executive Officer of MRI Software. “This acquisition will extend and strengthen our multifamily product line and will allow MRI to provide the strongest tenant lifecycle management solution on the market.”
The new, combined entity will provide both MRI and VaultWare customers with many advantages. The acquisition will provide MRI’s customers with a complete, fully automated lease management solution that will be tightly integrated into MRI’s property management and accounting systems. VaultWare and its clients will benefit from MRI’s world-class client support and professional services capabilities, award-winning SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) environment, and the additional product investments possible with a larger organization.
