Innovation becomes increasingly essential in a world that continues to expand its complexity. Businesses must improvise, be more alert, and seek alternative solutions proactively.
“That is what we feel Nomad Temporary Housing has done with its new sourcing platform that uses technology to decrease the response time with a simplified, consistent, and planned approach to aggregate temporary housing information for customers,” said Al Blumenberg, NEI SVP, Global Client Development and Service Partner Relations. “NEI Global Relocation created its Innovation Award to recognize service partners who are making significant strides within their businesses and take a segment of the relocation industry to a new level.”
Gavan and Heather James were at the NEI Global Partner Alliance Summit to accept the award on behalf of Nomad. Two additional companies were shortlisted as finalists in the competition: Movers Specialty Services, Inc. (MSS) and REA – Partners in Transition. All three finalists participated in a panel discussion at the Summit, The Future is Here, to share the details of their entries, identify what they had learned throughout the process, and contribute some advice to the attendees, based on their experiences.
“Innovators recognize where the industry is, and more importantly, where it’s going,” said NEI President and CEO, Randy Wilson. “They identify a need and forge full speed ahead to embrace the change that is coming. That commitment deserves to be recognized and inspires others to move forward in our quickly changing world.”
The Summit drew service partners from over 17 countries and offered attendees the opportunity to network with NEI employees and each other. Next year’s Summit will begin on October 21 with the GPA Board of Directors Meeting and continue for all attendees October 22-23, 2020 at the Hilton Omaha.
