What projects are you most excited about?

I'm most excited about our Budget Revision Project! We were tasked with the challenge of moving a tedious process into a more user and mobile friendly system. This will allow the field teams to submit budget revisions from MSR Properties and have one system to manage the majority of their work. This excitement is why I love being a part of the team
