PREVOSE, Pa., Aug. 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- International SOS and Everbridge 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.
Through an integration between International SOS' TravelTracker and Everbridge's critical communication engine, client organizations 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 1 billion messages to over 200 countries in multiple languages and dialects in 2015.
"In today's dynamic workplace, where many staff are likely to be working across campuses, remotely or travelling, it is no longer good enough to alert and get confirmations from people about critical events based upon their 'static' office location," said Jaime Ellertson, CEO of Everbridge. "We are excited to partner with International SOS to enable companies to improve employee safety and duty of care for all employees based upon where people are, inside or outside of 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 organization 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."
