According to a new study from Global Business Travel Association, carried out in partnership with AIG Travel, almost three-quarters of travel companies use a travel tracking technology.
73 percent of the 176 respondents said they have used travel tracking technology. How are they using that technology? 26 percent said they had GPS tracking for business travelers. 85 percent use the technology for travel advisories, while 62 percent have a travel assistance application—53 percent have both alerts and an app.
Robert Gallagher, COO of AIG Travel said, “It’s no surprise that travel professionals find medical and security services most important, when you consider the world we live in today. However, when it comes to duty of care, these services are not enough. Employees need thorough preparation through education, training and the routine sharing of relevant and real-time information, especially for those who travel to high-risk areas.”
