CHICAGO, Sept. 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Hillard Heintze and Prescient announced a new strategic relationship. The joint agreement integrates Hillard Heintze's travel risk management competencies with Prescient's unique and proprietary big-data analytics and technology platforms to support the new Traveler solution and mobile application.
"This is an exciting development for us – and for many of our corporate clients," said Hillard Heintze CEO and co-founder Arnette Heintze. "Up to now, Hillard Heintze's travel-related client services to major enterprises and other employers with global workforces have been focused primarily on travel security advisory. As one of the fastest growing travel risk management technology companies in the world, Prescient and its powerful technology permit us to integrate this guidance with real-time alerts that allow employees traveling internationally to be much more aware of the risks and threats around them and make proactive decisions before an incident occurs."
The Traveler solution and mobile application is supported by a 24/7 global command-and-control center staffed by trained threat analysts and equipped with sophisticated threat assessment and analysis systems. The solution delivers live, continuous monitoring of employees' locations in correlation with threat intelligence and information captured from nearly 50,000 discrete sources. When events do occur, Hillard Heintze has the global operational ability to respond immediately anywhere in the world – with services that range from liaison with embassy and U.S. government assets or in-country security and law enforcement personnel to extraction and relocation or hostage and kidnapping response.
"Prescient's travel intelligence and alerting technologies are natural complements to Hillard Heintze's risk management support for global travelers," remarked David Walsh, Prescient's CEO. "With this new partnership, travelers will benefit from the humanized intelligence that our big data analytics platform affords, and will also be able to leverage end-to-end strategic advisory support in mitigating risks for traveling personnel, business operations and assets anywhere in the world."
