What is Updater?
Our Founder started the company after a move from one apartment to another in New York City. He made a list of all the things he needed to do, people he needed to call, emails he needed to send, and realized it was a very long list. From this list, a company was born: Updater. It was founded on the notion that moving doesn’t have to be complicated – it could be, dare we say, pleasant.
Today, Updater is the nation’s leading provider of relocation technology, and our software powers over 25% of all US moves annually.
