CHARLOTTE, N.C., Aug. 27, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AvidXchange is pleased to announce a new strategic partnership with MRI Software, which designates AvidXchange as an MRI Preferred Partner and recommended solution for payment automation. MRI Software provides industry-leading property management software to the global property management and investment industries, and AvidXchange specializes in AP and payment automation solutions. The long-term partnership represents an exciting new chapter in the relationship that the companies have had for more than a decade jointly serving over 150 enterprise clients nationwide. With many of MRI's customers already utilizing the AvidInvoice intelligent invoice management and approval workflow solution, the AvidPay automated bill payment solution is the perfect complement to facilitate a completely paperless AP and payment process—from invoice receipt through vendor payment.
The AvidPay automated bill payment solution eliminates 100% of the paper checks and related manual tasks such as printing, signing, stuffing, and mailing. It reduces an enterprise's payment processing costs by up to 60% or more, and is available and used by joint AvidXchange and MRI clients today. In addition to AvidPay and AvidInvoice, this new partnership features several other jointly supported integrations: the AvidBuy electronic purchase orders solutions, the AvidContract electronic contract management solution, and the AvidSync seamless integration solution. Both companies plan to work closely together in supporting and scaling their respective software integrations, including advanced testing and joint support to facilitate an optimized client experience. MRI Software and AvidXchange are also slated to be sponsors of one another's upcoming user conferences, where clients will have the opportunity to interact with senior representatives from both businesses and learn in more detail how the partnership will benefit their overall software experience.
"Our new expanded partnership is a great milestone in the relationship we've fostered with MRI for more than a decade to facilitate a superior customer experience for our current, and future, shared clients," commented Michael Praeger, CEO and Co-Founder of AvidXchange. "With the AvidPay automated bill payment solution seamlessly integrated with MRI's real estate enterprise software, MRI customers will now have a great automated bill payment option to select as an alternative to printing paper checks. MRI customers will be able to entirely eliminate their dependency on printing paper checks, while leveraging all of the different electronic payment options vendors are now utilizing to receive payments," added Praeger.
"MRI is happy to add another extremely capable solution to our set of partner vendors, and we know AvidXchange is a strong partner for collaboration," said David Post, CEO of MRI Software. "Their company has a great solution and we know working together will help streamline our joint customers' property management processes."
