y management software solution

CLEVELAND--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 22, 2003--MRI Real Estate Solutions, an Intuit® company (NASDAQ:INTU - News), today announced that Archstone-Smith (NYSE:ASN - News) has selected MRI Residential Management software as its property management solution. MRI's web-based solution allows Archstone-Smith to streamline its on-site operations and enhance its customer service offering across its national portfolio of close to 80,000 apartments.

"Archstone-Smith strives to lead the apartment industry in innovation -- and aims to set the bar for excellence in terms of offering a superior customer experience," said Dan Amedro, chief information officer of Archstone-Smith. "That means embracing leading-edge technology to improve operational efficiencies and ultimately enhance enduring customer relationships. MRI's web-based solution is powered by workflow technology that streamlines on-site operations so our associates can spend more time doing what they do best -- delivering great customer service."

"We're very excited to work with Archstone-Smith to streamline and simplify how their associates do business," said Bob Lasser, vice president and general manager of MRI. "Our strategy is simple: to provide clients with solutions that are right for their business."

Archstone-Smith assembled a team of 16 associates to conduct an exhaustive search for a new property management software vendor. "MRI was the clear and unanimous choice," said Amedro. "MRI's role-centric solution is customized to each associate, who can quickly access the features and data in line with their specific job responsibilities from their own personal home page. Such workflow technologies ensure the leasing process runs smoothly, with less training requirements, which not only helps us fill apartments faster, it ensures a great experience for new residents."

Moreover, MRI Residential Management software allows Archstone-Smith to better track customer data. "With MRI, we can accurately track resident histories to better understand our customers and how to best accommodate their needs," said Amedro. "Plus, the system allows us to offer resident-only web sites through which our customers can view their account, renew their lease, pay rent and submit service requests online. In short, MRI Residential Management makes it significantly easier for our customers to do business with us."

Archstone-Smith began pilot testing of MRI in late 2002, and expects national implementation of the software by year-end 2003.
