The Boulevard™ label as a Concierge
Do you ever wake up and feel like there should be someone to do your research and manage your project requirements at hand? To plan, specify and source your entire interior requirement, instead of you sitting in front of the computer screen for hours looking for suitable products and service providers? Your diary is filled with important meetings or business travel and the project at hand needs also to be fitted into your schedule. Would you want an expert to be your personal assistant or your project manager?
Well, there are few companies which provide such services. Their employees will do anything for you as long as it’s legal, moral and ethical.
Welcome to the era where concierge services have become a business model followed by Boulevard Decor™ for years.
What Is A Concierge?
Some say that the word ‘concierge’ is derived from a Latin word ‘conservus’ which translates to ‘fellow slave’, while some say that it has evolved from the French ‘comte des cierges’, which means ‘the keeper of the candles’, which was essentially the main duty of concierges during the Middle Ages. Nonetheless, the meaning and the duties of the concierges have changed over time. They now perform almost every task for top-level managers, VIP customers of banks and hotels, superstars, or anyone who have enough money to outsource their work to them.
So, what is a concierge?
“A concierge is an individual or a company which is specialised in personal assistance or any other assistance services like household management, lifestyle management, transportation, travel and vacation planning, etc. and provides such personalized services to its clients (usually high-net-worth clients) at a variable price.”
Boulevard Decor™ saves the time of the client by performing their specialized tasks.
Concierge services are a fairly recent addition to the luxury industry; all thanks to the constantly changing business environment, the technological advancement, and the long working hours of the working professionals. Such limitations have resulted in lack of time in the life of people. Clients now wish for either more time or someone who can do the work for them while they free their time for the things that matter.
Lifestyle Management / Project Concierge
Lifestyle management is a specialized service where the client outsources his personal tasks like daily errands management, pet sitting, house sitting, reservations, special events management, shopping etc. to a commercial firm or a professional.
Earlier, concierges used to be restricted to hotels or luxury apartment buildings and used to assist guests by making restaurant reservations, arranging spa service, recommending places to visit, booking transportation, etc. But now these individuals and companies have moved ahead and have specialized in a lot of tasks ranging from lining up tickets for concerts or special events, planning a holiday trip, doing the shopping errands, restaurant recommendation and reservations, etc.
The business models of different concierge services providers differ in the types of service provided and to whom it is provided. Some concierges provide personal travel planning service, etc., while Boulevard Decor™ provides all the services relating to an interior project by acting as interior designers or project managers.
At Boulevard Decor™ concierge we use our expertise to save the time and provide exceptionally personalized luxurious service to their esteemed clients.
The Future of Concierge Services with Boulevard Collection International™
” The price of our time can’t be overestimated. If we could evaluate and realize its current value from the future perspectives, we wouldn’t have wasted it for things that are a kind of ‘need to’ instead of ‘want to’ and stopped compromising on whether to do them ourselves or get help to have them done.”
Mobile devices and internet have changed the way concierges work. Today, a person residing in New York can ask his personal assistant residing in India to plan his trip to Egypt. All this can be done seamlessly with just one text message. In familiar fashion, Boulevard Decor™ has over many years perfected its concierge offering to numerous local and cross-border clients (read more)
