The leading medical and travel security risk services company, International SOS, and the critical solutions provider, Everbridge, have announced a strategic partnership to deliver critical information to employees and mobile workforces in preparation for when events occur that may impact their health, safety, security or wellbeing.
The integration of International SOS’ TravelTracker and Everbridge’s critical communication engine, will allow client organisations will have access to an advanced set of capabilities to communicate near real-time alerts in times of crisis.
Furthermore, TravelTracker customers can also benefit from the reliability of the Everbridge critical communication engine, which claims to have delivered more than one billion messages to more than 200 countries in multiple languages and dialects last year.
CEO of Everbridge, Jaime Ellertson, commented on the partnership: “In today’s dynamic workplace where many employees are likely to be working remotely or travelling, it is no longer good enough to alert and get confirmations of safety from people about critical events based upon their ‘static’ office location.”
He continued: “By partnering with International SOS it enables companies to improve employee safety and duty of care for all employees based on where people are, inside or outside the building, and what is taking place near them.”
