The global mobility landscape continues to evolve exponentially. However, companies are also faced with increasing cost-cutting measures and many have had to revise their mobility policies and restructure their international assignment packages. More and more companies are moving away from standard 3-year based assignments and creating more short-term assignments, frequent or extended business travel and rotational assignments to reduce costs. Pathfinder recognises the need for an agile supply chain and prides itself on being able to offer human-centric, simplified cost-efficient services without compromising on our quality and the level of support provided to both employer and employee.
Imagine being able to view properties, shortlist and even select your new home from the comfort of your living room ahead of your international assignment start-date, rather than spending hours in traffic, travelling from one end of the city to another. Thanks to virtual real estate tours, offered by selected Pathfinder-appointed realtors, we are now able to offer you the experience of a property ‘walk-through’ even before you arrive in your host country. This shift from the analogue method of property viewing is an effective time-saver, and for companies, this translates into cost savings on their employees’ relocation programme.

Digital transformation and automation have been the biggest disruptors in the industry, changing how global mobility assignments are managed. We at Pathfinder are committed to adapting to this rapid change in dynamics whilst ensuring we keep costs affordable for our customers. For example, our online Pathfinder Concierge database is a guide on day-to-day to living in Malaysia. It provides valuable and reliable information on moving to Malaysia, the healthcare system, finding a home, cost of living and international education options.
We all know how tedious and complex the immigration process can be. By keeping abreast with heightened immigration laws and utilising online tools and technology platforms, Pathfinder is able to seamlessly navigate through the complexities of the work permit application process, resulting in improved turnaround time for work permit approval.
Expats of today are much more informed about mobility matters, and many of them have multiple mobility experiences to their credentials. A common trend in global mobility practices has also seen companies offering mobility employees a limited or lump sum package to self-manage their relocation.
As a leading Destination Service Provider in Malaysia for the past 18 years, and the first and only relocation company in Malaysia to hold the European Relocation Association’s Global Quality Seal (EGQS), Pathfinder appreciates this paradigm shift in global mobility and the need to continuously innovate our line of services to include more tailor-made and a-la-carte services without compromising on the uniqueness of our human-centric service delivery - http://www.pathfinder-relocation.com/
