New partnership with GET LOCAL
VISIONAPARTMENTS is teaming up with Zurich-based start-up GET LOCAL to launch an enhanced cooperation: This will enable all tenants in Zurich to enjoy sophisticated online concierge services with numerous unique offers in restaurants and bars, nightlife, events, excursions, wellness, shopping and transportation. In Zurichs’ professional business apartment sector, GET LOCAL will offer its concierge service exclusively to VISIONAPARTMENTS clients. The two companies will always be preferred partners in all other cities.
“We are looking forward to working with VISIONAPARTMENTS”, declares Stefan Neukom, founder and CEO of GET LOCAL. “With its over 600 residential units, VISIONAPARTMENTS is actually the city’s largest host. This opens us up an interesting volume market of well-off international business travellers throughout the entire year. The longer stays make our services very attractive to tenants.”
“With GET LOCAL, we are supporting a Zurich-based start-up with a great business idea and potential”, says Anja Graf, CEO of VISIONAPARTMENTS. “We are delighted that this will make our tenants’ stays even more diverse and exciting. This partnership will help our guests to really feel at home from their very first day.”
Zurich-based start-up GET LOCAL has developed a unique overall concierge concept, selling select and exclusive activities, services and experience packages to international visitors to Zurich via a tailored online platform. The network of local premium cooperation partners already features over 60 members from all sectors. “These are anything but standard services, they are very special experiences, which we develop personally with each of our cooperation partners”, adds Stefan Neukom. All 140 packages can be booked simply and conveniently around the clock via the platform. There is a contact centre in the background to provide support if necessary.
Like VISIONAPARTMENTS, GET LOCAL continues to grow after a successful launch in Zurich. The company is set to expand to Basel, Berlin, Geneva and Vienna among others next – all cities where VISIONAPARTMENTS already operates or plans to open new buildings. The two companies also plan to cooperate closely as preferred partners in these destinations too.
