MRI Software has bought Housing Partners to augment its capabilities in the housing sector. Housing Partners’ Housing Jigsaw, Streetwise, TAIM and HomeSwapper products will now be part of MRI’s software portfolio.
The acquisition of Housing Partners follows on closely from MRI’s acquisitions of Castleton Technology and Orchard Information Systems earlier this year.
Patrick Ghilani, chief executive officer, MRI Software, said, “We are proud to welcome Housing Partners into the MRI family, adding an exciting and innovative range of digital solutions to our interoperable MRI Living portfolio. This acquisition expands our ability to enable the delivery of front-line services, helping housing providers bring increased flexibility, mobility, safety and security to their communities.”
Jonathan Prew, chief executive officer, Housing Partners, said, “Becoming part of MRI Software brings the potential for far greater scalability. MRI’s global experience and technology will allow us to bring the benefits of software to many more people. It will also support our clients in their desire to speed up digital transformation, the need for which has been heightened by the pandemic as the housing sector strives to deliver services remotely.”
