Aires wins gold at the Stevies

Aires has announced that its SpringBoard, self-service, lump-sum management tool has won the Gold Stevie American Business Award in the ‘New Product or Service of the Year – Software – Cloud Application/Service’ category. Winners were determined by the average scores of more than 190 professionals worldwide in a two-month judging process. Aires’ SpringBoard tool was selected for its advanced functionality, ease of use, and ability to fill gaps in current market offerings.

“When developing the tool, we worked to fully understand the patterns, motives, and decisions of our lump-sum transferees to improve their experience. This approach resulted in the refined and intuitive user experience that Aires’ clients expect,” said Aires’ Vice President of Operations, Joleen Lauffer.

One judge in the process highlighted several key benefits of the tool, stating, “Identifying gaps in competitive solutions is called value-based marketing, which not enough companies appear to do with any due diligence. Bravo for doing so. I also like that you can track actual spend against budget and have tax data available at the end of it all. Excellent. Well done!”

Introduced in 2016, SpringBoard offers a number of features and benefits, including:

•             Dynamic services selection with automatically generated service provider options;

•             Personalised task list;

•             Interactive budgeting process to set service budgets and track actual costs vs. budgeted amounts;

•             Taxability tips and automated year-end tax packet;

•             Available for U.S. domestic and international relocations;

•             Multiple-currency for international moves;

•             Access to an Aires Mobility Specialist with 24/7 availability;

•             Access to Aires’ global network of partners.

More than 3,600 nominations from organisations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories. The American Business Awards are the nation’s premier business awards program. All organisations operating in the USA are eligible to submit nominations – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small.

“Each year the judges find the quality and variety of the nominations to be greater than the year before,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards. The 2017 competition was intense and every organisation that has won should be proud.”
