For Direct Connect, the relationship with Rockend (now known as MRI Software) has been long standing and loyal. Direct Connect have been exclusively partnered with Rest Professional for over 10 years as it supported property managers across the country to provide an easy experience for users and know their mover’s connections would be taken care of too.

Therefore the seamless integration with cloud based property management application Property Tree was always going to be the right decision going forward to benefit its users. Direct Connect’s State Manager, Belinda Seers says, “This is a milestone moment in a long standing relationship within the Proptech space. Direct Connect embraces MRI as a key strategic partner which goes beyond utility referrals, given both of our strong brands in property management, organisation’s depth and big growth ambitions for the future. Although the Rest Professional integration has remained in place, this feels like we are back together and we could not be more happy to be celebrating this achievement.”


In the latest release, users will be able to submit their connections through to Direct Connect, by simply activating their “utility integration” and selecting Direct Connect. This new feature will provide existing Property Tree users an easy way to ensure their mover’s will have the lights on when they need it. 

Going forward, Direct Connect and MRI see this new integration as a way to continue to support its valued partners with technology-led service to the property management industry. The early adopters of the program have already seen benefits, Direct Connect’s Business Development Manager, James Lovell says, “Our early adopters have been loving the feature, the integration allows for new tenants to be referred to Direct Connect seamlessly as part of being entered into PropertyTree. We’ve enjoyed success aligning with our friends at MRI, our two businesses have worked together to ensure we get this right as we look to replicate the success of the Direct Connect Rest Professional referral button”

Stephen Wilson MRI’s (Managing Director of Business Development, APAC) says: “We are also excited about the expanding relationship with Direct Connect, a valued partner. We can now offer our desktop and cloud-based solution property management customers the opportunity to nurture a great relationship with their tenants by helping make their moving-in a lot easier. 

The Direct Connect team have collaborated as one with MRI and, this partnership will drive innovative technology enabling growth opportunities for our respective businesses.”

Following the success of the early adopter program, all Property Tree customers can now activate Direct Connect in their Property Tree account. If you need any help setting up the Direct Connect integration or you are interested in becoming a partner please call 1300 558 169.
