INTERNATIONAL SOS WINS INAUGURAL NATIONAL BUSINESS AWARD IN SINGAPORE FOR ITS TRAVEL RISK MANAGEMENT SOLUTION
The company’s Assistance App, TravelTracker and TravelReady
programmes form an end-to-end technological solution for preventing and managing travel risk
International SOS, the world’s leading medical and travel security services company, was named a winner at the inaugural National Business Awards. The award win category – Health Products and Services – reflects International SOS’ core competencies and emphasis on technology-based services and innovation which are a fundamental part of the preventive programme it offers to clients.
International SOS’ solutions, fully integrated with its 27 global Assistance Centres, help local and international companies prevent health and security incidents to travellers and assignees, provide emergency help and assist employers in ensuring compliance with their travel policies.
In response to an ever-changing and volatile world, International SOS has continually enhanced its travel risk management offerings to help employees make informed decisions on their health and safety, before and during their trip.
The company’s integrated Assistance App, TravelTracker and TravelReady software form an end-to-end technological solution for prevention and travel risk management. TravelTracker’s latest enhancements include the Forward Travel Itinerary feature (that allows automates the submission of travellers’ itineraries and eliminates manual data entry errors), multi-language capability, and advanced mapping and search technology software.
TravelTracker, the world’s leading travel tracking solution, helps organisations quickly respond to a critical event by identifying employees at risk of exposure and facilitating communications with them through integrated email and optional SMS. Employers also have 24/7 web-based access to a simple, aggregated view of their employees' travel during an incident. In 2015, International SOS processed over 2.8 million unique international travellers via TravelTracker.
Managing Director of International SOS Singapore, Juliana Gim, said:
“With globalisation, more and more employees are travelling and working across borders. World events over the last 15 years have made businesses more aware of the need to proactively manage the risks facing their global workforce and fulfil their Duty of Care responsibilities. To meet the duty of care that organisations have for their employees, International SOS continues to develop solutions to assist clients in preventing and mitigating their exposure to risks as quickly as possible. “
“International SOS was established in Singapore in 1985 and we have grown our operations substantially since the early days. Singapore, where our global headquarters is located, remains a critical and strategic location for thousands of our clients and is one of the lead operational centres within International SOS' network of 27 Assistance Centres around the world.”
Today, the Singapore incorporated company is the world’s leading medical and travel security risk services company, led by 1,400 doctors and 200 security specialists.
The National Business Awards was launched by the Singapore Business Review and recognises outstanding home-grown companies across over 80 industries at the core of Singapore's remarkable economic success which have made a mark, not only in Singapore, but also abroad.
