A Strata Connect icon will now appear on each Creditor contact card. Clicking this icon will launch the Creditor’s profile in Strata Connect.

Launch MRI Strata Connect from the Quick Work Order Icon

When MRI Strata Connect is configured as your maintenance option, selecting the Quick Work Order button or using the Ctrl-W shortcut will launch RI Strata Connect with the ‘Create Job’ page loaded for you.

Creditor Compliance 

MRI Strata Connect provides a Creditor Compliance feature to keep track of Creditor Insurance and Licensing. To utilize this feature, follow these steps:

  1. Navigate to Configure > Agency > Options #3
  2. Select the ‘Edit’ button
  3. Select ‘Managed by MRI Strata Connect’
  4. Click ‘Save’

Creditor licensing and insurance statuses will flow through to Strata Master. 

You can view your preferences for action required for each Creditor Compliance Status, by navigating to Configure > Creditor Compliance Status. 

These pre-defined default selections are adjustable by clicking ‘edit mode’ and adjusting your preferences for each status as desired. This will allow you to control whether Work Orders/Quotes and Creditor Invoices are able to be created for these creditors.

In order to view the status of any Creditor insurances or licenses, navigate to Manage > Creditors > Search for a Creditor > Creditor Compliance tab. 

You will be able to manually override the compliance status in this screen, however upon updating a Creditor’s insurance/licensing details in MRI Strata Connect, this information will once again synchronize with Strata Master, and override your manual selection.
