Is your Moving and Storage company providing you with Innovation?
In a first for the removals and storage industry Blue Lion has been awarded the coveted Jones Lang LaSalle National 2016 Vendor Innovation Award (VIAP).
VIAP submissions in the categories of Technology, Client Experience, Productivity, Risk Management and Environmental Sustainability were assessed by a panel of senior Jones Lang LaSalle staff. This annual program acknowledges vendors that value add and work in partnership with Jones Lang LaSalle whilst, positively impacting Jones Lang LaSalle clients through innovative initiatives, and excel in their field of expertise.
Blue Lion has successfully partnered with Jones Lang LaSalle since 2007 and jointly provides relocation services for numerous national clients including ANZ Bank, Telstra, IAG, and a number of key Government accounts.
Also, a finalist in 2015, Blue Lion won the 2016 award for the development of a proprietary client software allowing the creation of an online virtual storeroom. Live asset tracking has created service efficiencies as well as significant cost efficiencies through the centralisation of asset management.
Blue Lion is a privately owned, Australian company which allows us the freedom to be adaptive, dynamic and responsive. Since its modest beginnings in 2004, Blue Lion has become the removalist of choice for a well-established portfolio of clients including BHP Billiton, AMP, Medibank, Rio Tinto, Mercedes Benz, Qantas, Macquarie Group, Westpac, Ernst and Young, as well as numerous national and state based Government Departments, major hospitals and universities.
With a national footprint and a brand new purpose built corporate headquarters near completion, 2017 is predicted to be a significant year for Blue Lion. Referrals and recommendations are the keystone to our sustained growth and more organisations and large government departments trust Blue Lion with their staff relocations, storage needs and other property related services than any other moving company in Australia.
Throughout its history, Blue Lion has stayed true to its vision that we only succeed when we meet and exceed the expectations of our clients. With our passion for excellence we endeavour to set and deliver the highest possible standards of service. We encourage innovation and integrity, accept accountability and enjoy the challenge. We share a sense of urgency, nimbleness and endeavour to have fun along the way.
Blue Lion’s objective is to do more than just provide a relocation service to our clients. Our philosophy is to build strong working partnerships and we aim to develop a deep understanding of our client’s business and provide them with the work place tools to help them achieve their property goals.
Blue Lion Managing Director, Jason Baird is proud of what the company has achieved to date and excited for what’s on the horizon. According to Jason, “The past 13 years of business would not have been possible without our passionate employees. We hire people who align with our values of integrity, accountability, team work and passion. Our high staff retention rate and strong employee engagement are key factors in our success and continued expansion. Blue Lion will continue to be innovative; we’ll continue to listen to our clients and respond quickly to what they need”.
General Manager, George Kitsakis says,” We work very hard to make it easy for people to become clients with the knowledge that once we have an organisation on-board the Blue Lion trademark focus on quality, responsiveness and workplace needs ensures that they become customers for life”.
