Do you know anyone who likes to move? – Neither do we. Nevertheless, every year around 10% of the population in Germany packs their bags and sets off for new shores – if you count the relocation of companies, that’s over 20,000 moves every day!
Fortunately, times have changed since the days of the Iron Chancellor Bismarck. Moving boxes may be as heavy as ever – but dealing with address changes is now easier than ever.
TOLERANT Software GmbH & Co. KG is the new IT partner of Deutsche Post Adress GmbH & Co. KG, the market leader for address updating and research in Germany. The Stuttgart-based software house has developed a solution for updating customer data with the Deutsche Post Adress relocation database.
Every year, around 4.8 million households in Germany move. With an average household size of 1.75 persons, this corresponds to more than 8.4 million people with a new address. And the trend is increasing; because with the course of globalisation, the labour market demands more flexibility and mobility from all of us. In line with this social change, current studies predict a steady increase in relocations in Germany.
