Travel Risk Management Key Feature Guide
In 2023, we’re seeing a huge resurgence in travel, with business trips and travel budgets rapidly returning to levels not seen since before the pandemic took hold. And as corporate travel frequency grows, so too does the volume of potential risks and hazards safety, security, and travel teams must contend with.
Severe weather disasters are becoming increasingly common, active shooter events are on the rise, and protests over human rights, living standards, and political issues are occurring more regularly and in more locations—all representing risk to organizations and their people. For travelers—and those responsible for keeping them safe—these incidents are often compounded by unfamiliar environments, communication delays, and confusion resulting from not knowing how or where to get reliable information.
Travel safety leaders need a way to keep track of their employees’ travel locations, monitor nearby threats, and communicate with their travelers in the event of an emergency. With AlertMedia Travel Risk Management, employers of all sizes can prepare travelers ahead of trips, stay ahead of emerging threats occurring near their traveling workforce, and notify at-risk employees to ensure they are out of harm’s way.
Why Some Travel Safety Solutions Fail to Take Off
Protecting business travelers is hard work. You need to be able to synchronize their location, intel on nearby threats, and effective communication channels. However, most travel safety solutions on the market today can support only one or two of these critical elements, resulting in a disjointed and frustrating experience for security leaders and travelers alike.
Why AlertMedia’s Travel Risk Management Is the Perfect Safety Copilot
Our unified Travel Risk Management solution makes it easy for teams of any size to keep their travelers safe, informed, and connected during their trips. Here’s how:
Prepare your travelers in advance of trips
New places often come with unfamiliar, unwritten rules and customs. AlertMedia Travel Briefs prepare your travelers ahead of time with crucial information that helps them feel secure when traveling to new locations.
Track threats automatically
No matter where your people find themselves in the world, you’ll be confident knowing that AlertMedia’s professional Global Intelligence Team is constantly combing through and verifying reports of active and emerging threats. You and your employees on the road can act on that information, knowing it’s reliable.
Communicate quickly and efficiently
“When you’re separated geographically and there’s so much communication that needs to occur, a tool like AlertMedia helps organizations communicate faster, better, and more clearly.”Gianetta Jones Vice President and Chief People Officer, Coca-Cola Bottling
AlertMedia’s emergency mass notification system makes it easy to facilitate communication between traveling employees and travel safety teams in seconds. Your travelers can respond to alerts or initiate conversations to ask for assistance, so they’re never more than a message away from help.
Keep your travelers safe from anywhere
No laptop? No problem. AlertMedia’s mobile app gives travel security teams and employees alike access to travel risk management features from anywhere, allowing you to provide travelers with on-demand access to safety resources from any device.
Key Features of Travel Risk Management
When an employee goes abroad, you lose control of their environment. It suddenly becomes more time-intensive and complex to understand their location, monitor for nearby risks, and reach them when you need to communicate time-sensitive information. Without the right tools, this quickly becomes a monumental task for a travel safety team of any size.
With AlertMedia Travel Risk Management, you have everything you need to ensure employee safety—no matter where they are—all from a unified solution.
Travel safety briefs
Expert-curated Travel Briefs provide key information related to current travel conditions, local safety concerns, cultural customs, weather, and more for any location. Built by our highly trained travel security analysts, these reports are up-to-date and ready to be sent to travelers ahead of their trips.
Traveler monitoring on the map
With AlertMedia’s real-time mapping features, you can see a user’s predicted location on a map according to their itinerary, so you always know where they plan to go and what disruptions and dangers they might encounter. No matter where they are, you can continue protecting them with confidence.
Localized threat alerts
With analyst-verified threat alerts, you never have to second-guess your information, and you can respond without delay. Receive automatic threat notifications for active and upcoming travel destinations and easily forward those alerts to impacted employees.
Two-way multichannel communication
Reach out to any employee through multiple channels, including voice calls, SMS texts, email, and more. Employees can then confirm receipt of the message or respond with their own message. If travelers need assistance, they can contact admins for help at any time through the mobile app.
Integrated travel data
Sync itineraries from your travel management systems, so you and your employees can stay up to date on travel plans and accommodations. Or directly tap into AlertMedia’s API to do it your way.
Simple, robust reporting and management
Spend your time keeping people safe rather than corralling data. AlertMedia lets you easily report on active and upcoming trips and edit itineraries directly in our app for any last-minute changes.
