Travel technology expert Sabre Corporation has unveiled SafePoint, a new mobile duty of care solution which provides companies and business travellers with a smarter, faster and more accurate approach to travel risk management.
Integrated into Sabre’s TripCase travel itinerary management app, SafePoint automatically monitors all of the corporation’s trips. The app allows travellers the chance to check-in with their corporation and provide GPS location while also having easy access to their emergency assistance hotline. For travel managers, risk management teams and security advisors, an intuitive dashboard enable them to view events impacting their travellers in a consumer grade user experience across desktop, tablet and mobile devices.
Sabre has selected iJET International as the exclusive provider of travel and security intelligence to SafePoint. In the event of an incident or disrupted travel, iJET’s best-in-class travel intelligence will feed into SafePoint, which will automatically notify impacted travellers via the TripCase mobile app, SMS, email and push notifications.
“Corporations today are challenged with providing a duty of care solution for their travelling employees in the time of a crisis, and many business travellers are unaware of their company’s available resources if something should happen while travelling,” says Clinton Anderson, senior vice president – corporate strategy and traveller experience for Sabre. “We know that travellers are more likely to stay connected in times of crisis with an app that helps them across the trip life cycle including travel risk management.” www.sabre.com
