Recent statistics show business travel is on the rise, which has meant Vismo has seen a significant increase in enquiries over the past few months about protecting traveling employees. In recent weeks, the US has re-opened their borders to foreign visitors after 20 months, a significant move for the travel industry. As the world adapting and slowly returning to normal, many employees are keen to get back to business travel and see customers and sites face to face.
COVID-19 has increased risks for organisations and travellers, meaning there are additional risks to take into consideration and manage. Organisations need to understand the COVID risk at the destination and implement measures for employees to easily raise an alert if there is a problem or emergency.
Five ways to improve the safety of business travellers:
- Provide travellers with a Red Alert feature to quickly get help in an emergency
- Inform travelers of high-risk areas
- Provide a discreet location monitoring solution to ensure travellers can be located
- Implement a way to mass notify travellers in an emergency
- Ensure two-way communication is available to provide support when required
Vismo can help organisations better manage and mitigate business risk by keeping employees safe and informed. While doing so, staff gain peace of mind knowing they can easily raise an alert in an emergency and receive assistance.
For organisations to easily identify when employees have entered a high-risk or safe area, virtual geo-fences can be created on the Vismo Secure Portal. Employers are automatically alerted when a user enters or exits one of these areas via SMS and Email. This enables organisations to be more informed about potential risks and this can be passed onto the employee, through the two-way messaging on the Vismo App and the Vismo Secure Portal. Employees also have visibility of the geo-fences through the Vismo App to provide clear awareness of the risks at their destination.
Using Vismo, organisations can easily send mass notifications to employees through the Vismo Portal. This could be to all employees or those in a specific geo-graphic area. This enables employers to quickly provide crucial information in the event of an emergency. Organisations have control over the message content, delivery method and response options, providing full flexibility within an easy-to-use system.
Risks for those who travel have always existed but the ongoing need to manage COVID-19 has led many of our clients to ensure they are able to locate and protect all of their staff, now more than ever. Vismo helps organisations manage travel risks with the simple deployment of our Vismo Locate & Protect App & Portal. Users benefit from a Red Alert feature, Check-Ins and Mass Notifications and many more.
