“Kite Realty Group is an exciting addition to our growing CRE client list and showcases our work with MRI, a key channel partner”, said Craig O’Neill, CEO of VersaPay. “Working with MRI’s clients speaks volumes to the strength of our channel partner strategy as we become the accepted AR automation standard in commercial real estate.”
