Sabre rethinks travel risk management with new SafePoint

SOUTHLAKE, TX — Sabre’s SafePoint, a new mobile duty of care solution that offers a “smarter, faster and more accurate way to help protect travellers”, will be available to customers worldwide later this year.

The new tool provides peace of mind for corporations by bringing risk management to the traveller and providing visibility into the traveller’s entire trip and giving travellers the ability to stay aware and easily get assistance.

Unveiled yesterday at the GBTA Convention 2016 in Denver, SafePoint automatically monitors all of the corporation’s trips. For travellers using TripCase, SafePoint will monitor a traveller’s entire itinerary, not just PNR segments. This includes out of program bookings and other trip components.

TripCase allows the traveller to check-in with their corporation and provide GPS location while also having easy access to their emergency assistance hotline. For travel managers, risk management teams and security advisors an intuitive dashboard allows them to view events impacting their travelers in a consumer grade user experience across desktop, tablet and mobile devices.

“Corporations today are challenged with providing a duty of care solution for their traveling employees in the time of a crisis, and many business travellers are unaware of their company’s available resources if something should happen while travelling,” said Clinton Anderson, Senior Vice President – Corporate Strategy and Traveller Experience for Sabre. “We know that travellers are more likely to stay connected in times of crisis with an app that helps them across the trip life cycle including travel risk management. With SafePoint, travellers don’t need to download another app as alerts, check-in and emergency assistance are integrated into TripCase.”

The safety tracking capabilities of SafePoint are integrated in TripCase as a single solution to access and manage all trip-based data, and travellers don’t need to download a separate app out of corporate policy.
