Everbridge introduces next generation of its travel risk management solution

Everbridge, a critical event management (CEM) specialist, has launched its next-generation Travel Risk Management (TRM) solution for new and existing customers. Everbridge specialises in global travel risk, operational resilience and occupational health management solutions, integrated within a critical event management platform, to help businesses and organisations quickly locate and communicate with traveling employees, remote workers, and those returning to the office, who may be in harm’s way.

Everbridge said the Riskmatics platform and 24/7 response centre support thousands of requests each year to provide medical, security and travel assistance and advice to those in need.

Everbridge’s next-generation Travel Risk Management solution now further extends the Everbridge CEM platform to offer business, healthcare and government organisations the functionality they increasingly require to keep their people safe wherever they go.

In addition to medical and security assistance and a 24/7 response centre, Everbridge’s TRM solution also helps organisations build standards to meet or exceed the recently published International Organisation for Standardisation ISO 31030 guidance.

“With ISO’s recent publication of standard 31030, enterprises are looking to adopt its guidelines on how to manage risks for organisations and their travellers, including threat detection, risk assessment, and prevention and mitigation strategies,” said Connor Taylor (pictured), technology analyst in the ESG & Sustainability practice at Verdantix. “Everbridge remains very well positioned to benefit from increased interest and attention to travel-related risk. In fact, just as organisations are improving their formulation of playbooks for managing traveller and remote work risk, Everbridge is accelerating the execution of its strategic product roadmap to bring additional travel risk management capabilities in-house.”

Matthew Judge, managing director of Anvil Group, now an Everbridge company added: “Organisations need to be much more proactive in their risk management. Our highly-evolved risk management system delivers 360 degree threat awareness and dynamic intelligence on volatile incidents, mapped against an organisation’s critical assets, so that security leaders can take informed actions. Everbridge provides the industry’s most definitive, end-to-end system to protect an organisation’s people and assets, drive compliance and attain operational resilience.”

Travel risk management remains an important critical event management (CEM) use case for enterprises and essential for long-term success, especially as business travel increases. The Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) expects business travel to exceed pre-pandemic levels by 2025, and a recent GBTA poll showed that, globally, suppliers and travel management company respondents see optimism about the industry’s path to recovery with half (50 percent) indicating that they felt more optimistic than they did the previous month.

“The combination of Anvil’s Riskmatics platform with CEM will provide medical, security and travel assistance and advice to those in need, and help keep people safe, wherever they go,” said Eric Boger, senior director, global intelligence and analysis at Everbridge. “Riskmatics further extends our position as the leader in critical event management and risk intelligence, which remains especially timely with today’s evolving travel and remote work location trends.”

Everbridge supports more than 6,000 enterprise customers with critical event management (CEM) software applications that automate organisations’ operational response to critical events. Everbridge CEM leverages over 450 out-of-the-box, pre-existing integrations and over 25,000 risk data sources, for organisations to gain situational awareness, act faster, and improve outcomes.
