The users conference marked the APAC launch of MRI Living and MRI @Work, which 
encompass the company's comprehensive solutions for residential and commercial 
property management. The event took place one year after MRI acquired Rockend ( 
), the market-leading provider of residential property and strata management 
solutions in the Australia-New Zealand PropTech sector, expanding its overall 
offering and residential footprint in ANZ. Since the acquisition, the number of 
properties managed using the company's cloud-based residential software has 
risen by 34%, representing increased use of the application by new users and 
existing clients that have grown their portfolios. MRI further bolstered its 
suite of residential solutions for the region last month when it acquired 
Castleton Technology ( 
), a leading provider of technology solutions for community and social housing 
providers in Australia.

Pacific, commented: "This has been an exciting year for everyone at MRI in

conference underlined the tremendous momentum the business is generating in the 
region and provided an opportunity for us to share insights and collaborate
