SITU, one of the UK’s leading providers of global serviced apartments and corporate accommodation, has been shortlisted for “Best Serviced Apartment Provider” at the prestigious, internationally recognised Relocate Awards.
Launched by Relocate Magazine in 2007, the Relocate Awards recognise excellence in the relocation and mobility sector, and celebrate the contribution that supplier businesses and HR professionals make in relocating staff to new locations, domestically and internationally.
Award nominees were shortlisted following a rigorous and thorough judging process by a panel of industry experts, based on a detailed application, complemented by testimonials from recent clients.
Phil Stapleton, Founder and Managing Director of SITU, said: “Being shortlisted for the Oscars of the relocation sector is a huge honour for us. It reflects the levels that our staff go to, to ensure that our clients have the right accommodation in the right location, tailored to their particular requirements.
“We’re different from the majority of corporate accommodation providers in the sector. We don’t just limit ourselves to our global portfolio of serviced apartments in over 500 locations worldwide. Instead, we always look for the right solution, and if that doesn’t exist, we find a way of creating it.
“This flexible and results-driven approach means that our team often put together bespoke solutions, breaking the mould of off-the shelf, like it or not accommodation that other providers have to offer. It’s more onerous, but it is this willingness, determination and desire to ensure that our clients’ needs are met, whatever the challenge, that ensures customer satisfaction.”
Stapleton added: “SITU has been growing rapidly, and each year we aim to provide new services and solutions to our client-base the world over. Having been highly commended at the 2016 ASAP awards for Serviced Apartment SME Business of the Year, we hope to go a step further this year at the Relocate Awards.”
The Relocate Awards are due to be presented on May 10 at the Underglobe, beneath Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, on London’s South Bank.
SITU prides itself on understanding and delivering to the individual needs of clients, their staff, senior executives and their families. It believes that this approach is the best way to achieve lasting relocation success, avoiding the costly implications of failed staff relocation.
Supported by its cloud-based systems that reflect the unique requirements of the industry, SITU is able to offer customers quoting engines, brandable customer reports, CRM functionality and financial systems.
Among SITU’s most recent initiatives is technology that ensures website enquiries are responded to in less than 20 seconds, and the roll-out of property live availability and real time prices that are accessed through SITU’s supplier portal and API for all the major property management and channel managers.
