[2017 Holiday Video] It's the Most UrbanBound Time of the Year!

UrbanBound Holiday Video 2017Now what would this season be without UrbanBound's annual wish to you and your team, through song and dance, for a happy holiday?

Luckily we already answered the question for you, and the answer is: Nothing. This season would be nothing without UrbanBound's annual holiday video.

While the tradition of the UrbanBound clan bopping around to holiday songs carries on throughout the years, some things haven't changed.

For one, the team has yet to perfect our angelic harmonies and near-professional dance choreography...but thankfully our spirit and enthusiasm makes up for what we lack in those other non-important things. (And in case you were wondering, we are looking for new additions to the UB Choir. More on that here.)

While the close of another year marks the end of our 2017 chapter, we don't want to turn the page before thanking everyone who was a part of making this year such an important part of UrbanBound's history.

We are incredibly grateful for our strong partnerships and network of customers, suppliers, colleagues, and friends.

 

Yep, in case you didn't get the memo, we're coming to town (and no, it's not for dance and vocal lessons). Get ready for a year full of new features, continued, education, relocation trends, and much more. 

We thank you all for being part of what made 2017 such a success, and we look forward to what lies ahead in 2018!

Happy holidays from our family to yours—we wish you the happiest new year.

[Video] A Year of UrbanBound in 2016

UrbanBound employeesPassion and excitement are two things certainly not lost on the UrbanBound team. And year after year, we continue to infuse that energy into our product—from engineers who build our software's framework, all the way to the people marketing and selling it around the world.

Our company was built on the concept that the collaborative work of many will overpower the work of just one—and it wins every single time. Co-founder and CEO Michael Krasman explains,

"Building a team is a crucial step of the process because simply put: it’s impossible to build a company by yourself. Keep in mind, the first wave of employees you attract to work at your startup will make or break your company, and the passion that you have for the problem you’re trying to solve needs to be contagious. Make sure to bring people on board that are as passionate as you are."

Luckily for you, we recorded most of that passion in 2016. Check out our past year at UrbanBound HQ:

 

We are so grateful to everyone who was a part of the past 12 months, and we look forward to working with even more of you, in even bigger ways, over the next 12. We continue to learn and grow together, both as a team and with the rest of you in the software and relocation space, and we're excited to see what the future has in store.

In the words of our Co-founder Jeff Ellman,

"To both effectively scale a business and solve a problem within an industry, you need to foster a team of thoughtful, creative and motivated individuals to help make your vision a reality and create brilliant solutions for your customers. That is what really makes a great company and creates a sustainable competitive advantage."

We wouldn't have any of it without the support from our clients, partners, and friends. Thanks for a great year.

[2016 Holiday Video] UrbanBound is Coming to Town!

urbanbound holiday videoNow what would this season be without UrbanBound's annual wish to you and your team, through song and dance, for a happy holiday?

Luckily we already answered the question for you, and the answer is: Nothing. This season would be nothing without UrbanBound's annual holiday video.

While the tradition of the UrbanBound clan bopping around to holiday songs carries on throughout the years, (check out our progress from 2013, 2014, and 2015), some things haven't changed.

For one, the team has yet to perfect our angelic harmonies and near-professional dance choreography...but thankfully our spirit and enthusiasm makes up for what we lack in those other non-important things. (And in case you were wondering, we are looking for new additions to the UB Choir. More on that here.)

While the close of another year marks the end of our 2016 chapter, we don't want to turn the page before thanking everyone who was a part of making this year such an important part of UrbanBound's history.

From raising a round of Series B funding, to launching a host of new software features, all the way to being nominated for (and even winning) a handful of awards, we're humbled by it all. We are incredibly grateful for our strong partnerships and network of customers, suppliers, colleagues, and friends.

We think our Co-founder & CEO Michael Krasman gives a good idea of what shapes UrbanBound as the years pass:

"Ultimately, I believe it comes down to the people; the employees I work with day in and day out and the clients that we support. Working alongside a team of creative and forward-thinking individuals is a daily reminder of the reason I became an entrepreneur. Hearing their ideas, seeing them grow in their careers, and being a part of that journey is a high point for me as an entrepreneur.

We have a great company, a great culture, and it's rewarding just to be able to walk into the office every single day and know I'm working with the best team in Chicago."

Each and every one of you have contributed to our achievements in 2016, and we want to show you just how grateful we are. And how else does UrbanBound do that, but through song?

 

Yep, in case you didn't get the memo, we're coming to town (and no, it's not for dance and vocal lessons). Get ready for a year full of new features, continued, education, relocation trends, and much more. 

We thank you all for being part of what made 2016 such a success, and we look forward to what lies ahead in 2017!

Happy holidays from our family to yours—we wish you the happiest new year.
