ReloQuest, a new software company, will help those seeking temporary housing to find the best matches, faster and at a lower cost than with existing solutions.
The Fort Lauderdale-based firm’s cloud-based service will simplify hundreds of thousands of moves a year via a transparent, unbiased and independent program. ReloQuest expects to transform the relocation industry and dramatically alter the competitive landscape for corporate housing suppliers working with relocation companies, human resources professionals, insurance, travel departments and/or general corporate clients.
Ryan Agee, Vice President of Global Supplier Partnerships at Altair Global, has been among those who have provided feedback to help shape ReloQuest’s framework. He calls the technology “a game-changer in the sourcing of corporate housing.”
“The platform is thoughtfully designed as a multi-functional resource,” Agee says. “It offers transparency, responsiveness and ease of use to relocation management companies, corporate housing providers and corporate clients alike. We look forward to maximizing our use of its capabilities.”
Whether helping an employee in the midst of a transfer or temporary assignment or working with someone else seeking a longer-term relocation, the tools for sourcing and evaluating various housing options are mired in 1990s-era technology, says ReloQuest President and Founder Darin Karp.
“This will really change the way everyone does business throughout the entire industry,” says Karp. “What Hotels.com, Expedia.com, Homeaway.com and AirBnB.com have done for travel and vacationers—that’s the impact that we see this innovation having on the relocation industry.”
