In 2009, serial entrepreneurs Michael Krasman and Jeff Ellman saw an opportunity. Through their experience starting a recruiting firm and a real estate company, they witnessed the pains of relocation firsthand—both on the employer and the employee side. Additionally, having founded Hireology, a hiring and talent management software, they knew how technology could play an important role in easing some of HR’s biggest headaches.
Knowing that the relocation management industry had been stagnant for over 50 years—with little to no innovation—Michael and Jeff started UrbanBound—the first relocation management software to revolutionize the way people relocate. Today, UrbanBound helps both employers and employees manage and track all aspects associated with moving for a job.
UrbanBound refuses to be limited by what is possible in the present. With a bold vision for the future of relocation technology, we are constantly enhancing the employee experience. Our relentless dedication to improving relocation strives to help everyone—from pre-decision candidates to interns to high-level executives. At UrbanBound, we continue to make moving exciting by leveraging technology and removing the inevitable stressors of relocating for a new job.
