Cleveland, OH (PRESS RELEASE – June 6, 2009) — The current economy has made it clear to relocation executives that corporate housing is the most economical solution for their employees’ temporary housing needs. Two years ago, a site that was created as a simple tool for corporate housing providers to minimize vacancy has become an essential resource for business travelers. The Corporate Housing Network’s (TCHNetwork.com’s) strategic ability to match and connect those seeking temporary housing with quality providers has even captured the attention of The New York Times in an article just this past April.

The benefits of utilizing The Corporate Housing Network are two-fold. First, seekers can perform a very targeted Search for their employees’, their clients’, or their family’s temporary housing needs on this site; there is never a charge to search or book housing. Secondly, “What strategically differentiates The Corporate Housing Network from any other site out there is the ability to have multiple companies and owners Bid for your business – in minutes,” says Erin Bozan, President and Co-Founder of TCHNetwork.com. “This also ensures our users that they are receiving our housing providers’ very best offers.”
A “Bid”, otherwise known to members and users as a “Request” for housing, has become a very effective tool for all parties involved. “It is not uncommon for someone searching for temporary housing to have very specific variables — from requiring to be near public transportation to mandating that their corporate apartment, condo, or home be within a particular school district,” says Kat Schneider Fotheringham, CEO and Co-Founder.
If after performing a Search for corporate housing an exact result does not surface, the person seeking housing will then post a Request for Housing; when they do, this site’s proprietary system effectively sends out these requirements to multiple providers. Only providers who have an exact match will then “Bid” on the business.
“Our system places the person seeking housing in the driver’s seat. Visitors to our site are pleased to be presented with multiple options that include the amenities they need, at the budget they require,” adds Bozan.
Providers like the ‘Request’ function on The Corporate Housing Network as well. “The most frustrating, and cost prohibitive, aspect of dealing with leads in this industry is that a team can spend hours researching the ‘perfect solution’ for a client, only to learn later that their budget is not a match for our services,” commented Kathy Policaro, Director of Business Development and Corporate Accounts for Churchill Corporate Services.
“The infrastructure of TCHNetwork.com, coupled with the Search Housing and Request features, allows providers to only spend time on prospects who are a match for their particular product,” adds Policaro.
