AltoVita Unveils New Features to Remove the Pain Points Associated with Business Travel and Relocation

  • AltoVita revealed new features at world-first Corporate Housing Innovation Summit which took place virtually across five continents

  • Announcements include easy-to-use data analytics tool and advanced search features empowering organisations to ‘work from anywhere’ amid business travel recovery

London, UK; 19th July 2021: In the final phase of its Corporate Housing Innovation Summit, where 400 people from around the world gathered to future-proof the corporate housing sector, AltoVita, the cloud-based global accommodation platform that delivers private and serviced apartments, villas and homes worldwide, announced new features on its platform to improve the client and employee  experience and remove the pain points associated with corporate relocation. 

Through detailed discussions with industry participants, AltoVita noted that the industry was lacking key functionalities and consequently developed a new easy-to-use data analytics tool to help clients contrast and compare average and seasonal market prices. The tool will allow corporates to benchmark, budget, and manage client expectations more easily – a first for the industry from an accommodation booking platform.

In order to improve employee experience amid the work from anywhere trend, AltoVita’s improved filters help clients easily search for properties that allow pets, have entertainment facilities, and work-from-home-ready essentials, among others. The company is empowering businesses and their employees to relocate fuss-free, by not only automating the entire process, but by generating a cost saving of up to 80% for clients and reducing the sourcing timeline from 24-72 hours to just a few minutes.

Vivi Cahyadi Himmel, CEO and Co-Founder at AltoVita, commented: “We’re immensely proud to be pioneering digitalisation within the corporate housing sector with our world-first Innovation Summit. It provided a fantastic opportunity to utilise design thinking methodology to discuss real-life experiences around the challenges of relocation. AltoVita was born out of these issues and we’re excited to be continuing to develop our product based on tangible industry feedback.”

To improve customer experience further, AltoVita has also developed a revolutionary public application programming interface (API), which will allow relocation partners to connect to AltoVita’s management stems, giving them access to a global network of one million vetted and verified properties across 165 countries and 800+ cities. Clients can then seamlessly initiate housing requests, extend bookings, and cancel reservations. This is the very first open API developed to support the corporate housing sector.

By integrating with Google, AltoVita will also allow relocating employees and digital nomads to select housing near their desired shops and local amenities. Its clients can now overlay key features on top of a map view, including Food & Drink, Shopping, Public Transport, Medical, and Schools.
