The University of Surrey is at the centre of a future thinking project, which is exciting the scientific community.
The field of quantum mechanics may seem a little removed from our need to pop to Waitrose, or make the station on time but there is a connection. Good facilities come from living in an area which is moving forwards.
Surrey being seen as a place of innovation attracts like minded people, investment and skills. A nearby research park and digital entrepreneur unit add to the ethos, as do regularly received technology awards.
They can be related to science, although Surrey also holds leading medical research centres, automotive development specialists and far more. A mixed platform, sharing a focus for transforming ideas into commercial reality.
From designing McLaren’s latest formula one car, to overseeing Sony’s European headquarters, the need for technological support is evident. They are collaborators in innovation, working with research centres to be ahead of the competition.
This drive is led by university and corporate leaders, along with investors and public officials who grasp the benefits of backing change. If there were a national list, a fair number would live, or work in Surrey.
A county which recently tried another first, when Surrey University submitted patent applications in the name of the AI system which created them. The Court of Appeal ultimately ruled against but this may change in the future.
In the interim, local companies large and small will continue to use the ideas that are available to take forward and boost the local economy.
Across All Sectors
From consumer purchases, to crossing the road, the chances are that technological innovation is involved. The same can apply to buying a property, choosing the right paint, or moving in on time.
We understand that removals can be seen as a large truck and a few guys humping furniture. They are not too likely to be replaced by robots in the near future but behind the scenes, much has changed.
At Farrer & Fenwick we recently renewed our IT system, to work well with the latest removals management software. This helps with many aspects of our business and more importantly, helps our customers.
When we started the company, we vowed that the ethos would be to minimise stress for movers, whilst offering a competitive, comprehensive service. At that time, dedicated IT technology was embryonic but in the present, is invaluable.
Planning is enhanced, costs reduced, customer awareness can be at the centre of all we do. Over the years, working in Surrey has made a difference, with support and skilled people easily accessible.
The Next Decade
We look forward to Surrey University letting us know if time is running backwards as well as forwards, although our removals schedules will still match your time.
How removals in Surrey are managed will continue to change, in a region that encourages being up to date. One constant will be the focus on service, an awareness that our business is personal and requires close support.
If you phone us, you will always talk to a person, not a robotic system, on site support will be all you hoped for. Moving home is a personal experience, which deserves individual attention.
Away from these important aspects of our service, we will make sure you do benefit from the efficiency that technology can bring.
