The Industry-leading TMC Enables all Clients to Provide Traveller Control and Security With New Integrated Tools
LONDON, PARIS, MUNICH and BRUSSELS, January 19, 2011 - Egencia(R), an Expedia, Inc. company, released new Travel Alerts and
Traveller Tracking tools enabling European clients to fully comply with duty
of care obligations.
"To meet our clients' full-service travel management needs, Egencia is
continuing its history of innovation by providing enhanced features and tools
for greater efficiency, stronger security and proactive service," said
Christophe Peymirat, Vice President Global Marketing, Egencia. "Travel
Management Companies have a duty of care to their clients. Egencia fully
equips Travel executives to manage crisis scenarios, providing the
information and tools necessary to support their travellers no matter the
location and circumstance."
The Traveller Tracking tool is integrated into Egencia's booking platform
and thus now is available to all businesses - small to large. By empowering
travel and procurement managers to easily and quickly locate employees on an
interactive world map, organisations can access individual trip data
(flights, hotels, etc.) for each traveller. This increases their emergency
preparedness and response time in the event of inclement weather, natural
disasters, terrorist attacks, or other crises. Egencia clients are well
equipped to anticipate and manage the security of their travellers regardless
of time or location.
Egencia also provides a dedicated Travel Alert resource centre that
monitors international incidents and potential threats with up-to-date,
accurate news that has the potential to affect corporate travellers
"It's our duty to help our clients conduct a thorough risk analysis, so
they can make informed decisions and ensure the safety of their travellers,"
