Everbridge Strategic Partnership
Market leaders join forces to deliver robust solutions for global travel security risk management and critical communications
Through an integration between 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 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 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.”
Everbridge is a global enterprise software company that provides applications which automate the delivery of critical information to help keep people safe and businesses running. During mission-critical business events or man-made or natural disasters, over 2,700 global customers rely on the Everbridge platform to quickly and reliably construct and deliver contextual notifications to millions of people at one time.
The company’s platform sent over 1 billion messages in 2015, and offers the ability to reach more than 200 countries and territories with secure delivery to over 100 different communication devices.
A broad set of applications enable businesses, universities, hospitals, agencies, states, cities and towns to address issues related to IT outages and cyberattacks, severe weather and man-made incidents, safety of travelling staff, and facilitate regulation-compliant messaging. Everbridge serves 8 of the 10 largest U.S. cities, 7 of the 10 largest U.S.-based investment banks, 24 of the 25 busiest North American airports, and 6 of the 10 largest global automakers.
