ATLANTA, June 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- TRX, Inc. ( (Other OTC: TRXI.PK), a world-leading provider of travel technology, process automation, consulting and data services, announces the launch of a traveler security and traveler tracking suite in the TRAVELTRAX travel reporting solution.

Leveraging the company's vast data consolidation capabilities, TRX captures pertinent traveler information required to identify past, current, and future locations of travelers and renders the information real-time through a set of dashboards, reports and user-defined queries.  Travelers can be instantly notified via integrated e-mail and SMS messaging services during travel disturbances, such as the recent volcanic ash crisis when many travel managers were scrambling to get up to the minute communications to stranded passengers. 

The 'Traveler Security and Traveler Tracking' suite is currently available to more than 10,000 corporations relying on TRAVELTRAX to provide travel and expense reporting and analytics services. Travel managers and corporate security specialists have enhanced on-demand visibility into traveler whereabouts and new direct communication options to alert travelers of pending travel and security challenges.

The 'Security and Traveler Tracking' suite consists of three easy to use interactive dashboards and reports, each providing insight and direct communication options with travelers:

Traveler Security

The 'Traveler Security' dashboard maps travelers within a global geographic context to help identify low, medium, and high risk areas. The dashboard features an interactive map providing drill down capabilities into country and itinerary details. Added links to external travel advisories and travel risk oriented sites greatly enhance the level of threat awareness and shorten response times to emerging threats.

Traveler Arrivals and Departures

The 'Traveler Arrivals and Departures' dashboard provides a comprehensive manifest of travelers across arrival and departure times within the time period specified by the user. Whether utilized for planning purposes or emergency situations, locating travelers is only a click away.

Traveler Locator

Utilizing real time data to locate travelers after trips have been booked and confirmed helps travel managers locate travelers for planning or travel risk identification purposes. The report delivers answers to the questions, "where are my travelers now and where are they heading next?"
