The UK's Leading Environmentally Friendly Removals Company Continues Their Pioneering Environmental Work With the Forthcoming Launch of ECOLOGICBy Eco Movers, PRNE
Monday, November 1, 2010
LONDON, November 2, 2010 - You wouldn't expect a small moving company to be the creator
of revolutionary green technology which both increases customer service
levels and reduces carbon emissions, but that is exactly what Cadogan Tate's
South London (www.ecomovers.co.uk/) based Eco Movers division has
done. Already well known for pioneering the use of fully electric removals
vehicles powered by renewable energy, after 12 months in development Eco
Movers is launching its ground-breaking online customer service system,
ECOLOGIC this month. This will revolutionize the way customers book their
removal while minimising the pollution it creates.
ECOLOGIC is a unique web-based service which combines the best
route-planning, GPS satellite tracking and mobile phone technologies linking
them directly to the company's online estimating, flexible pricing,
reservation and payment systems. Instead of having to make the time to
telephone a traditional mover during weekday business hours, then take time
off work to wait in for an estimator to call round and then wait yet longer
for their quote to arrive, Eco Movers' customers can use this new service
online 24/7 to suit their busy lifestyles. With a single visit to the
company's website you can now get a quotation, book your move, order packing
materials for next day delivery and pay online. Not only that, but you can
even negotiate the price. Moving costs vary with booking levels and peak
demand periods and if you want to save money you can easily and conveniently
run your cursor over the calendar, find the cheapest time slot on offer and
book it with a single click in one of the many areas in and around South West
London (www.ecomovers.co.uk/) including Wimbledon (
www.ecomovers.co.uk/) and Wandsworth. (www.ecomovers.co.uk/)
Eco Movers is ISO 14001 (the international environmental
responsibility standard) accredited and has the ambitious goal of going
completely paperless by moving all its business systems online. ECOLOGIC
links the company, its road crews, vans and customers by internet, wireless
and handheld computer (PDA) making Eco Movers the first company in the
removals industry to achieve almost total elimination of paper both on the
road and in the office.
Zach Wright, digital development manager for Eco Movers says
that "whilst our office team has always recycled all office paper ECOLOGIC
has now almost completely removed the need to use paper as customers book
moves and communicate online (although we do promise hand-on-heart not to use
their details for marketing or any other purpose)."
ECOLOGIC PDA technology also acts as a Satnav and GPS location
system. It can automatically notify customers by text or email when the
removal van is ten minutes away from their home and once it leaves with their
consignment on board they can track it online from collection to delivery.
The same technology also allows the management software in ECOLOGIC to
maximise effective route planning and vehicle use which ensures that fewer
vehicles travel shorter distances to deliver the same number of consignments,
reducing miles travelled and carbon emissions and customers can actually see
on the website how much they have reduced their carbon footprint by using Eco
Movers instead of a conventional moving company.
So for those customers looking for an efficient environmentally
friendly removal, ECOLOGIC definitely makes carbon sense.
