 (April 7, 2015) — Avail Move Management, Inc. a subsidiary of Atlas World Group, Inc., launches a pioneering tool for the relocation industry, movr™. This web-based tool assists relocation professionals and their relocating employees from one universal platform throughout their move.

To some, it's not just moving, it's relocating. That's more than putting belongings into boxes and calling a traditional mover. For other relocations, transferees are given a specific amount of funds to cover a move, known as a lump sum. Avail Move Management, Inc. works directly with clients and their employees to ensure successful transitions. By using movr, employers are able to gain a better understanding of lump sum spending by identifying the true costs associated with relocation, allowing them to further refine relocation policies.

movr offers technology, resources and savings that enable an employee to plan every aspect of their relocation. This means, for example, that movr can help a customer buy or rent residential space, book necessary travel, transfer a vehicle, move household goods, connect or disconnect utilities, discover an internet and TV provider and more. Essentially, the employee has the option to select from a list of services that pose as beneficial to them, and movr gathers and delivers information on companies who offer the services, provides pricing comparisons and a variety of discounts through vetted partners.

"We're in the market to make the relocation process as seamless as possible," said Mary Beth Johnson, vice president of Avail Move Management, Inc. "movr is a tool that will eliminate the common stressors associated with relocating one's life and belongings and help make their new residence feel like home faster."

Other benefits of using movr include a hands-off approach for the employer, the feel of a full-service program for employees, budgeting and calculating options and more.

"At any point in one's personal or professional life, it can be challenging to go new places," said Jessica Nichols, manager of business development for Avail Move Management, Inc. "Our goal is provide easy-to-use services, discounts and partners that make our customers' relocations memorable for the right reasons."

Additionally, general consumers who book a move with Atlas Van Lines, another subsidiary of Atlas World Group, Inc., will receive a registration number that allows them access to movr, allowing them to take advantage of the partner discounts and calculating options.

The tool is available on desktop, mobile devices, tablets and more. To learn more, watch this short video titled "What is movr?". For more information on movr, visit mymovr.com.
