MRI Software | December 29, 2022
Marlette Holdings, Inc., one of the leading financial technology companies that operate the Best Egg platform, recently announced a partnership with MRI Software, a global leader in real estate solutions.
The Best Egg Flexible Rent platform allows tenants to customize their monthly rental payments by dividing the total amount into several smaller, more manageable installments that can be paid at any time during the month.
Due to the integration of this technology within MRI's RentPayment service, residents can now choose Flexible Rent as a payment option without leaving the MRI portal. In addition, millions of renters are managed nationwide by the open and linked software created by MRI, which is used by thousands of multifamily property managers.
Best Egg is committed to giving its clients the resources they need to manage their daily finances while fostering financial confidence. Therefore, the company is happy to collaborate with MRI to give payment flexibility to the renters who use its software. The company's new Flexible Rent platform is a natural extension of that aim. Flexible Rent gives tenants more control over how and when they pay bills and guarantees timely and full rent payments to property managers.
As part of the Partner Connect program, MRI Software is pleased to welcome the Best Egg Flexible Rent platform since it believes the combined technology will provide tenants greater freedom to manage their rent responsibilities while lessening the administrative burden on property managers. Flexible Rent will be offered to multifamily property managers and tenants via MRI RentPayment beginning in the first quarter of 2023 and will be rolled out to additional properties over time.
