Our Philosophy – Don Kachur, President
I would like to make MovesOnline an “open source business network” – a group of movers from around the world who use our inventory generator on their websites and who will contribute to making it a more productive and efficient service for customers.
In the software business, open source means any programmer can contribute code to make the software better ( think i-phone app). In our open source business network, any business person can contribute suggestions for site improvements or sales ideas. Any suggestions to improve the site will be welcomed and we will do our best to implement any enhancements that will benefit all members.
I hope you will add MovesOnline to your regular sources of business. It will become one of the unique connections that you will share with other movers around the world who are trying to become more efficient and respected.
Go ahead. Try it.
