gement Firm and Premier Real Estate Business Software Company in Asia Pacific --

SINGAPORE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 2, 2004-- MRI Real Estate Solutions, a business unit of Intuit Inc. (Nasdaq:INTU - News), today announced that Jones Lang LaSalle has selected MRI Commercial 2.1.2 for its Hong Kong operations. As the foundation business management solution for Jones Lang LaSalle's operations in Singapore, Tokyo and Korea, this agreement underscores the value MRI provides to the world's leading real estate management firm by streamlining its business operations, increasing operational efficiencies and enhancing customer service.

Representative of Intuit's approach to provide industry-specific solutions to its customers, MRI offers technologies and services for handling the critical business and financial operations of real estate property management. Distinct from other solutions marketed to the industry, MRI's tools are designed specifically for real estate and property management companies, and include best practices and features important to a company's day-to-day operations. Jones Lang LaSalle Hong Kong will use MRI Commercial 2.1.2 for tenancy management, accounts receivable, accounts payable, general ledger and executive management reporting.

"Jones Lang LaSalle was looking for an enterprise technology provider that understood our business environment," said James Wong, international director, head of management services, Asia. "MRI stood out from other solutions providers because its offering combines industry-specific features and services with a global presence to support our business. Also, MRI has broad experience with other Jones Lang LaSalle offices in Asia."

"MRI is committed to providing clients with world-class quality products and services," said Stephen Wilson, managing director of MRI Asia. "Extending our relationship with Jones Lang LaSalle is an exciting opportunity for us to demonstrate the power and flexibility of our solutions to meet the ever-changing business needs of our real estate and property management clients."

MRI Improves Customer Service for Global Real Estate Management
Firm

Prior to this agreement, Jones Lang LaSalle Hong Kong relied on a patchwork of systems and software solutions to handle operational functions. MRI offers a single, integrated system that provides Jones Lang LaSalle associates real-time access to their business data and is accessible from almost anywhere at anytime using the latest software technology available. MRI's advanced reporting and analytical tools, combined with real-time data access, enable Jones Lang LaSalle to improve forecasting and budgeting as well as enhance customer service. Also, the flexible design of the MRI solution will have positive implications for customer service because it helps eliminate the trade-offs multinational companies like Jones Lang LaSalle often have to make between local business needs and corporate policies. MRI can be customized to account for the regional business requirements but still comply with the company's international standards and best practices. Additionally, Jones Lang LaSalle will benefit from the dedicated team of real estate experts, with over 30 years experience, who are focused on providing tailored solutions for clients in Asia.
