Aon strengthens travel risk management platform
Aon Risk Solutions, the risk management unit of Aon, has unveiled a technology-based enhancement to WorldAware Solutions, Aon’s travel risk management platform.
In partnership with Cornerstone Information Systems, a global technology company, the Aon WorldAware Global Gateway will offer a secure, accurate feed directly from a client’s travel provider to the Worldaware Travel Management System.
Ian Nunn, head of Aon Worldaware Solutions, said: “Business travellers face a multitude of potential risks when considering visits to new or complex overseas environments. Interestingly, of the eight largest emerging markets, five are located in what could be regarded as presenting the highest security risk to the business traveller.
“The principal sources of risk to the business traveller: that of accidental injury or illness through environmental elements such as endemic disease, and that of malevolent events, such as robbery or terrorist attack requires a comprehensive safe travel management program to reduce or deter risk to appropriate levels in accordance with client risk appetites.
“Today’s announcement enables Aon to feed the majority of travel provider data into our Travel Management System through the global gateway. This innovative technology is an industry ‘best practice’ solution that will make WorldAware Solutions one of the most robust safe travel platforms in the market. It will empower our clients with the ability to respond to an incident quickly, regardless of whether it threatens their daily workspace or an offsite location where an employee is visiting.”
