Market leaders join forces to deliver robust solutions for global travel security risk management and critical communications. International SOS, a market-leading medical and travel security risk services company and Everbridge, a global provider of SaaS-based unified critical communications solutions, today announced a strategic partnership to deliver critical information to employees and mobile workforces when events occur that may impact their health, safety, security or wellbeing. By integrating International SOS’ TravelTracker and Everbridge’s critical communication engine, client organisations will have access to an advanced set of capabilities to communicate near real-time alerts in times of crisis. TravelTracker customers will benefit from the reliability of the Everbridge critical communication engine, which delivered more than one billion messages to more than 200 countries in multiple languages and dialects in 2015. With the recent wave of terror attacks in France, Belgium and Germany and the large-scale civil unrest in Turkey, it is essential that organisations have crisis communication tools in place to ensure the maximum protection of staff and infrastructure. Business operates on a global scale and in the event of a crisis secure, effective and reliable two-way communication with employees is crucial—especially as many workforces are mobile and operate across various different sites and locations. “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,” said Jaime Ellertson, CEO of Everbridge. “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.” “Providing timely, accurate, reliable information and advice during times of crisis is critical to reducing risks to an organisation and its people,” said Arnaud Vaissié, Chairman and CEO of International SOS. “The partnership with Everbridge is expected to bring with it innovations in the delivery of critical communications, expert advice and assistance.” -Ends- About International SOS: International SOS (internationalsos.com) is the world’s leading medical and travel security risk services company.
