PayLease and MRI Software Join Forces to Enhance the Resident Experience

PayLease today announced an expanded partnership with MRI Software to bring cutting-edge smart home offerings to their clients. This one-of-a-kind, preferred partnership enables MRI property management clients in North America to further streamline their operations with the help of PayLease Smart, a complete smart home solution for multifamily owners who want to differentiate their communities by meeting the increased market demand for smart amenities, improving operational efficiency and increasing resident engagement.

With PayLease Smart, MRI clients will have access to an end-to-end solution that includes the selection, installation and simplified management of smart devices from front door locks and thermostats to lighting, and more. Management staff control and audit property access, streamline manual workflows, and reduce vacant unit energy costs. Residents manage all of their smart devices through a single, comprehensive mobile app branded for their property.

“We are excited to expand our successful MRI partnership by offering PayLease Smart,  a complete smart apartment solution that connects residents to their homes and managers to their properties,” said Stephen Baker, Chief Product Officer at PayLease, “Communities that use MRI can benefit from this solution to streamline their workflows and cut costs, such as eliminating the need to re-key after unit turnover and reducing vacant unit expenses through scheduled temperature and lighting control. At the same time, residents enjoy the simplicity of connecting to their homes through one modern, intuitive app that improves resident satisfaction and community engagement.”

The collaboration of MRI and PayLease expands upon the long-standing partnership between the two companies and offers integrated Online Payments, Resident Billing and Utility Expense Management products to mutual clients. It also further cements both companies’ unwavering commitment to offer innovative technology, bolstered by an unparalleled, intuitive user experience, to their property management clients and residents.

“Our preferred partnership with PayLease is a great example of how an open and connected technology platform gives property managers the tools they need to stay ahead of the curve,” said John Ensign, President and Chief Legal Officer at MRI Software. “Today’s renters expect their communities to offer digital amenities, and PayLease Smart empowers MRI clients to meet this demand.”
