New Travel Risk Management Service Addresses Mounting Liability Concerns
ANNAPOLIS, Md., July 30 /- iJET Intelligent Risk Systems, a leading provider of global intelligence, business resiliency technology and integrated emergency response services, today announced it has enhanced its Travel Risk Management service offerings, incorporating the new Worldcue Airline Monitor and adding other features to enable more effective corporate travel risk management programs.
iJET's Worldcue Airline Monitor is an extension of its Worldcue Travel Risk Management solution, which automatically relates global threats and incidents to travelers' itineraries to help them avoid potential difficulties. The Worldcue Airline Monitor allows companies to further minimize their travelers' exposure to risk by notifying travel managers of trips booked on airline carriers that do not meet minimum standards of operational safety. iJET's intelligence team and transportation experts monitor and analyze information on more than 300 airlines, including large commercial scheduled passenger airlines and a number of smaller and charter passenger carriers, to determine risk ratings.
"In light of recent developments, such as the European Union's air carrier 'blacklist' for airlines that don't meet certain safety requirements, the legal landscape for travel risk managers continues to change," said iJET CEO Bruce McIndoe. "Enterprises now have increased duty of care and duty to warn employees who may be booked to fly with questionable carriers. The Worldcue enhancements help address these new realities."
Companies with their own list of preferred - or not preferred - airline carriers can customize the iJET list in accordance with their travel policies. Automated notifications reflect the preferences of each company.
The Worldcue Travel Risk Management system integrates 24x7 world-class intelligence operations with award-winning technology and an emergency communication center, allowing organizations to quickly monitor and assess global threats to travelers, determine the impact and deploy the appropriate responses. Worldcue Travel Risk Management also notifies corporate travel managers when VIPs book travel, when an employee books a trip to a high-risk destination and when more than a certain number of employees are booked on one flight.
In addition to the Worldcue Airline Monitor feature, iJET has recently enhanced its Worldcue solution with:
- Google Maps - Clients now have the ability to immediately see traveler, expatriate and asset locations as well as active iJET alerts overlaid on Google Maps, providing travel and security managers with a global perspective on risk. - Two-Way Notification and SMS - This new feature enables urgent communications with traveling employees, expatriates and emergency response teams in any part of the world using multiple devices, by accessing Send Word Now's Alert Service via Worldcue. Joint clients can now monitor threats to their people and assets and initiate notifications by phone, email, pager, SMS, MMS, VoIP, Skype, instant messaging, satellite phones, and virtually any PDA or handheld computing device from a single portal platform - speeding their time to respond to emergency situations.
"We continue to assess our clients' needs in light of the changing risk landscape and offer solutions that address those needs," McIndoe said. "Our team is dedicated to staying at the forefront of business resiliency."
