March at Updater: Puppies, Press, and a Happy Hour

This month brought a few of our favorite things: coverage in a major press outlet, new partners in the real estate space, and (of course) puppies! Here’s what we’ve been up to all month long plus a few tidbits we’re eager to share.

Updater was highlighted in The Wall Street Journal! 
March marked a few momentous occasions for Updater. Mid-month, The Wall Street Journal published an incredible piece highlighting Updater’s new partnership with NYC-based brokerage Citi Habitats and expanding on how Updater helps Citi Habitats agents provide their clients with their best move ever.

Employees were featured — 4 to be exact
March was not only an impressive month for coverage of Updater, but also for highlights featuring Updater employees. In no particular order, here are just a few of the accolades our team racked up. 

Chad Horenfeldt, Updater’s VP of Client Success, was named to MindTouch’s list of Top 25 Customer Success Influencers of 2018. As a part of their Top Customer Success Influencers award series, MindTouch’s list of the Top 25 Customer Success Influencers of 2018 identifies members of the customer success community based on their influence in their field, community engagement, conference participation, and internet presence. Way to go, Chad!

Blue Thomas, Updater’s Director of Services Engineering, was featured on The Clubhouse Blog chatting about services engineering and how to effectively manage a fast-growing team. They also turned him into a pretty sweet cartoon…

Updater’s Senior Marketing Manager, Amanda Fischer, was featured in Martech Advisor to discuss the integral role marketing technology plays on the Updater Marketing Team.

Last, but not least, Updater’s Director of Marketing, Jenna Weinerman, cameoed in not one but two articles. Jenna was quoted in Kununu on the key to successful employer branding and again in The New York Post regarding how mindfulness is the key to success.

As a bonus, our CEO and Founder, David Greenberg, was featured in Forbes outlining his method for creating a cohesive company culture. Way to go, team!

We produced an amazing video for the AMSA Supplier Award
Updater is on a video roll! Last month, we highlighted our beautifully-executed recruiting videos. This month, the Updater marketing team produced an exceptional video that will be shown at the American Moving and Storage Association’s Annual Education Conference & Expo’s Evening of the Stars event. That’s right – Updater was recently named the 2017 Summit Award Winner. The Summit Award recognizes the moving and storage industry’s supplier of the year, reflecting AMSA’s and the industry’s recognition of outstanding performance among suppliers. It’s an incredible honor, and we are both humbled and thrilled to receive this recognition. 

A big shout out to Brianna, our video intern, for her hard work producing our AMSA Summit Award video. We couldn’t have done it without you. Check back next month for the full video! 

We hosted a happy hour for Citi Habitats
To kick off our recently-coined partnership with NYC real estate experts, Citi Habitats, we hosted a happy hour at Updater HQ and invited the agents of Citi Habitats to kick back, relax, enjoy a few drinks, and learn a bit more about Updater. With Citi Habitats based right in our backyard, it was a great opportunity to mix, mingle, and to get to know some of our newest clients. 

We celebrated National Puppy Day!
If you’re not familiar with National Puppy Day, you should be! Around the Updater office, it’s easily the most anticipated holiday of the year. And how can it not be? Check out these furry little mugs.

We hit the road quite a bit
The Updater Real Estate team spent some time on the road this March, traveling to the Cartus Broker Network International Conference, in Boca Raton, FL, and the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Convention in San Antonio, TX. We mingled with current and prospective clients, hosted roundtable discussions, and even went to a rodeo and country music concert (featuring Little Big Town)!

With warm weather right around the corner, the Updater Team has switched into high gear. Make sure to check back next month for our April recap. Until then, keep in touch via our social channels — LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram. And, of course, keep moving!
