Streamline Vendor Management with the Right Corporate Housing Match for Your Company

May 9, 2020

The modern business is becoming more global every day. Employees remote in, satellite offices are fully equipped to teleconference around the world, and corporate travel abroad has become a necessity. Gone are the days of a strict 9 to 5. Flexible work and the increasing demand for networking has lead to broader client engagement.

If meeting the needs of a growing team is putting a strain on your office manager’s last nerve, it’s time to take a closer look at the benefits of enlisting the help of a corporate housing partner.

Streamlined Efficiency

Single sourcing is the most effective way to meet your company’s needs with the least amount of stress. This dynamic is especially important when it comes to arranging business lodging in Toronto. Managing multiple bookings, various hotels, and miscellaneous extended stay providers is not only a confusing endeavor, but one that leaves plenty of room for error. 

Vendor management is made easy when working through a single, reliable agency. There’s no need to issue, track, and manage multiple invoices. This supports budgetary transparency and simplifies the process from beginning to end.

More Than a Reservation Number

Finding the perfect corporate housing match for your company is kind of like meeting your travel ready soulmate. Your team is more than a reservation number; they’re individuals with a unique set of needs to make their next work trip the best ever. 

Working with a single entity offers consistency through all of the unpredictable elements of traveling abroad. You’ll have the advantage of a reliable point of contact that knows your company. Once you’ve established a rapport, excellence is guaranteed. Your corporate housing manager acts as a pocket travel agent by reserving ahead, ensuring your preferred accommodations are available, and supporting your jet lagged business superheroes from the moment they land. The benefit of a personal touch is simply unmatched by hotel chains and private housing.

Travel with Confidence

No more booking and hoping for the best! Too often businesses receive inconsistent and sub par service when securing corporate housing abroad. Private rentals run by individuals may not be up to code in terms of safety, cleanliness, and general expectations, while hotel living can be tiring for foreign workers.

Working through a corporate housing entity means you’re entrusting critical projects and key members of the team to someone who means business. From full service concierges to state of the art security, extended stay rentals in Toronto have never been easier. A set standard of quality offers a degree of compliance that companies can feel secure in. There’s no small print or hidden fees. Managers have the advantage of reviewing and agreeing to a single contractual obligation that meets all regional and international standards for housing regulation. 

Enjoy the peace of mind reliable, compliant housing offers. Not only will your resident HR gurus be happy, but your team can rest easy knowing their stay is going to be a great one.

Familiarity in the Face of High Stakes Deadlines

Like putting on your favourite sweater, returning to your home away from home provides a sense of comfort and familiarity. The stress of travel can greatly impact your team’s sleep schedules and immune systems. When high stakes projects and busy schedules are on the line, there’s no greater asset in a company’s arsenal than the value of a good night’s sleep and a relaxing stay. This is especially important for businesses with frequent travel obligations where employees want to feel settled in their temporary housing and ready to take on the day.

Business Continuity

Our first step was to invoke our Business Continuity Plan. We are entirely digital and do not rely on any manual processes. We are also completely cloud-based and diversified through our use of Amazon AWS, Google Cloud, and Microsoft Azure. Our office team is mobile-ready and has access to all critical infrastructure, including our cloud-based phone and booking systems. Rest assured - we are prepared to continue serving you.

Toronto Public Health announced enhanced measures to protect the public on March 13, 2020, and are currently in effect until April 5, 2020. Anyone who has travelled from anywhere outside Canada, including the United States, is asked to self-isolate and avoid contact with others for 14 days.

For All Stays

Weekly Touch Up Service

For your safety and ours, weekly touch up service is cancelled until April 30, 2020. We encourage guests to utilize the ensuite washer and dryer to launder their linens and towels. For guests wishing to receive fresh linens, please send a request through Guest Services, and we will arrange to pick up your used linens (left in a bag at the front door inside the suite) and drop off fresh linen for you to use.

Our Commitment to High Cleaning Standards

We have always utilized commercial hospitality-grade cleaning procedures and supplies. We use specialized chemicals for different surfaces to ensure optimal disinfection. We also use new gloves and separate microfibre cleaning cloths for each suite to prevent cross-contamination. Any linens or cleaning cloths supplies by us have been professionally sanitized at a large commercial laundry facility.

Suite Visits by Guest Services & Maintenance

Until April 30, 2020, we will not conduct any suite tours for prospective guests, nor will any of our Maintenance or Guest Services team members visit occupied suites for any issues other than those relating to essential services.

We recognize that these are challenging times. Like many before it, this too will pass, and together we will get through it. Know that we are working around the clock to ensure you have a safe and enjoyable stay. We remain at your service 24/7 should you have any questions or concerns.
