Asian Tigers Group provides international moving services and relocation solutions for more than 16,000 families each year, with offices in 14 different territories. In the latest instalment of their regular column in Expat Living magazine, they touch on the use of communication technology to make moving house a smooth process. So if you’re looking for relocation services in Hong Kong or abroad, read on!
How do you use tech for relocating or moving house?
Advancements in communication technology have allowed employees to collaborate virtually across borders rather than in person. However, they haven’t completely negated the need to relocate employees internationally. Indeed, having a physical presence in another country is crucial to understanding local markets and cultural nuances, and also offers employees a chance to expand their horizons and gain international experience.
When it comes to physically moving a person or moving house, the Asian Tigers team employs communication technology in a range of ways to improve efficiency for all parties concerned. This includes helping relocate families and individuals around the world.
- Virtual tours of properties. You can start searching for your new home before you arrive using virtual reality technology.
- Virtual surveys of goods to be shipped. Overcome scheduling hurdles by having a surveyor from Asian Tigers view your furniture and goods and provide a quote.
- Streamlining communication and digitalising documentation. Getting quotes, ordering packing materials, making schedules and getting notifications are all made easier with tech.
What’s more, location-based services like finding nearby schools, amenities and healthcare service providers can all be solved with mobile technology, which helps to aid the relocation adjustment process.
At the Asian Tigers end, communication technology allows our customers to supply feedback to us. This valuable information empowers our continuous improvement programmes. And our marketing efforts are also enhanced by technology – social media, mobile apps and location-based marketing programmes increase brand visibility and help us reach a wider audience.
Tech is constantly evolving. We’ll continue embracing it and adapting it to our day-to-day activities, both in moves and other services.
