The growing priority for employers to monitor world events and account for the safety and location of their employees who are traveling will now be stress-free to address, and manage more effectively, with the roll-out of SafePoint, a new mobile technology by Sabre Corporation (based in Southlake, Texas).
SafePoint mechanically monitors all of the corporation’s trips. For travellers using TripCase, SafePoint will monitor a traveler’s entire journey, not just PNR segments. This includes out of program bookings and other trip components.
TripCase allows the traveller 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 allows them to view events impacting their travelers in a consumer grade user experience across desktop, tablet and mobile devices.
“Corporations today are challenged with providing a duty of care solution for their traveling employees in the time of a crisis, and many business travelers are unaware of their company’s available resources if something should happen while traveling,” says Clinton Anderson, senior vice president – corporate strategy and traveler experience for Sabre.
“We know that travelers 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. With SafePoint, travelers don’t need to download another app as alerts, check-in and emergency help are integrated into TripCase.”
Sabre plans to make SafePoint available to customers worldwide later this year. This announcement continues to build on Sabre’s vision for an integrated and mobile-friendly solution for corporate travelers.
