This tool makes job relocation less of a drag for everyone

(TECH NEWS) Job relocation can be difficult. This software benefits both employers and employees by giving insight to different cities.

The idea of having to relocate for a job can be an exciting, yet daunting thought. It becomes reminiscent of when you first went away to school and had to meet new people and learn your new surroundings.

Job relocation is an adjustment on both the employee and employer sides. Finding means for creating the smoothest possible transition for your employee can be a tricky business.

City to city

UrbanBound understands this process can be taxing, and has developed software to make relocation as simple as possible. The motivation behind the software is to take a stressful, life-changing process and make it easier.

Say, for example, you are working in New York City and your boss needs you to move to Chicago. Being unfamiliar with this new city, it can be overwhelming to figure out where to live, how to move your possessions, etc.

City guides

UrbanBound has created “City Guides” that detail different aspects of the area you will be moving to. Going along with our Chicago example, there will be a breakdown of the various neighborhoods around the city, as well as in the suburbs.

In addition, there will be a breakdown of what there is to do post work in terms of food and drink, entertainment, and nightlife in the area of your choosing. If you’re looking for a specific vibe for where you want to live, that is stipulated as well.

Tips and tricks

Within these guides, tips and tricks for transportation are given, which gives the employee an idea of how to get around their new city. The platform helps the employee to find and book movers, find a place to live, and research the city.

Graphs and infographics are also available to make the employee feel more prepared for their move. From the software standpoint, components of human resources (ePolicy, HRMS integration, and predictive analysis,) finance (lump sum, expense reimbursement, tax reporting,) employees (transferee support, collaboration,) and suppliers (direct billing suppliers, supplier integration) are offered.

Solution to the problem

UrbanBound’s software offers solutions to challenges including: onboarding resources, direct bill, lump sum disbursement, hyperlocal content, co-worker insights, and employer reporting. Finally, employers are able to create a policy for their employee, making for the smoothest possible transition.
