Corporate relocations are no casual one. While experience is imported in every sort of relocation irrespective of its nature, just in a case of any hassles created during corporate relocations, the escalations not only hurt the productivity of the employees but also impact the work hours of HRs and Admins.
If you are someone who manages relocations for your company, this one is for you. Read further to optimise the way relocations happen in your organisation:
Savings and Cost reduction:
I still remember an auditor of a global MNC asking it’s stakeholders a question that no one on the team was ready for. “If your L1 quotation the most optimal one?” When it comes to relocation, there can be no surety that the lowest quotation that you are getting is actually the lowest in the market.
A quick fix for this issue is easy. Prices coming out of these quotations should be vetted by a pricing analyst before they can be pushed for the approvals. Although this requires a person just doing this work and nothing else, this still works the best.
This is a cost which is not to mover or the employee but to the company. It involves a perspective and here is how that looks like; just in a case there is an escalation, it’s employee whose time and energy is wasted to bring things at the place, it’s the HR/Admin who will have to intervene in order manage escalations and it’s the vendor who will have to work not just to sort thing out but might also end up asking time and attention of your employer. The total cost of all the involved activities culminates in direct and indirect wastage of resources in a fashion that is much beyond to what is required.
The best way to sort this out is to find a mover that offers least damages, probably 15 – 20 in 100. While HappyLocate toches a figure as low as 5/100 relocation based damages, this figure is far from normal in the current market scenario.
Organisations have policies that are made after putting a lot of rigorous thoughts to the requirements, necessities and vision of a company. While as a company this can be a special document for you, an average packer and mover works with 10s of companies and it is just not possible for ’em to make themselves flexible for requirements of each and every company.
As of now, for this particular issue at least, it’s just HappyLocate that shares the capability of learning hundreds of thousands of policies and acts in an exclusive way for every single company.
Options & Operational excellence:
Like mentioned earlier, there is no way you can be sure that your L1 is the best quote unless you have a Price Analyst. However, this is just a half fact told. The complete fact is that a price analyst, even after years of experiences of analysing routes and inventories can only vouch for a quotation only and only if an exhaustive comparison has been done.
The best way to get multiple quotations is to empanel 10+ vendors least so that you have at least one close to the optimal vendor of a particular metro city route. A lot of corporates also prefer to work with companies like ours who have at least 25+ movers, dedicated price analysts and dedicated move manager to manage a relocation end to end.
