NEW YORK, June 16, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Furnished Quarters, the largest provider of temporary furnished apartments in New York City and Boston, today at the Forum for Expatriate Management NY Roadshow, is launching a groundbreaking corporate housing total program management tool, MyFQ. This mobile-enabled website is the first of its kind in the industry to provide a wide range of comprehensive services and customized reporting for corporate housing program administrators, as well as guests.
"The MyFQ site is truly revolutionary in the corporate housing industry," said a Manager of Global Mobility for a Fortune 500 financial services firm. "It's leaps and bounds above the competitive offerings available to manage corporate housing programs. Most other tools do not offer the scope, flexibility, ease of use, and access to customized reporting on demand that Furnished Quarters provides with MyFQ."
Through the site, program managers can now instantly access real-time data that could previously only be obtained from a Furnished Quarters' employee. This includes 24/7 access to guest lists, invoices, reservation details, apartment rates and photos, and the status of service requests and housecleaning services. Administrators can download this information into custom reports accessible through their desktop or mobile device. The tool also provides the ability to send messages directly to all or a selected group of guests, providing a solution for business continuity and disaster recovery.
In addition to serving corporate housing program managers, MyFQ also serves guests staying in Furnished Quarters' apartments. Through the site, guests now have mobile access to apartment details, neighborhood information, and local discounts prior to and during their stay. Guests can also pay for their reservation online, instantly submit service requests via the site, and even troubleshoot basic issues like how to access Wifi.
"Furnished Quarters conducted extensive research over the last year with a wide range of corporate housing clients to create this useful tool," said Robin Spindel, Vice President of Marketing at Furnished Quarters. "We took the time to drill down and really understand the details that make a difference to our clients, and designed MyFQ specifically to make it much easier, faster, and more cost-effective for them to manage their corporate housing programs."
