State Farm is helping to take the stress out of moving with its new application for the Apple iPad. Called MoveTools™, this free application is a relocation planning and household inventory assistant.
MoveTools™ gives people a fresh approach to planning a move; all the resources needed in one place. With MoveTools™, users can customize a weekly moving checklist to help plan their move and then create an inventory of their possessions. Users can then create and print “smart labels” with digital QR Codes, which can be read by smartphones with barcode reading applications. A quick scan of the label on a box will display a list of what’s packed inside.
“MoveTools™ blends innovation with utility in something that’s useful to people during one of the biggest moments in their lives,” said Patty Gaumond, director of Enterprise Internet Solutions at State Farm®. “Leveraging new technology is just one of the ways we’re being there for our customers.”
This is the first application from an insurer designed to assist people with relocation – another first from State Farm. In August 2010, State Farm released the insurance industry’s first Android widget, called On the Move, aimed at combating the issue of distracted driving.
