Relocation Industry Expert Scott McCain Quoted in HRO Today Technology Article
Paragon’s industry expertise is a reflection of the company’s long history providing relocation services and its beginning as a consulting firm. In keeping with this tradition, HRO Today Magazine recently quoted Scott McCain, President of Paragon Relocation in an article technology and the relocation industry. Scott states that solutions such as virtual reality, artificial intelligence, augmented reality, and the integration of these into the relocation process can ultimately serve all interests and provide convenience and cost savings.
“More and more transferees want to readily view options and execute decisions with their smartphone, as work activities continue to integrate with the rest of our lives. Employers want transferees to execute smart decisions to optimize productivity and cost. The best technology provides the functionality desired by transferees but within a vetted technology ecosystem that protects the interests of the employer at the same time,” he says.
In a world where technology is becoming more and more of a necessity in transferees’ daily lives, and relocations are often quite costly, it is important for the relocation industry as a whole to embrace the cost savings that technology can provide. While technology does not necessary replace in-person correspondences and visits, as Scott said, it can certainly make things easier and less costly.
