In response to the heightened focus on traveller risk as global travel volumes increase, BCD Travel has introduced BCD Alert to its suite of traveller security solutions.
The mobile app, developed specifically for travel and security managers, provides 24/7 coverage of active travellers against destination risk and incidents, allowing managers to monitor and respond remotely.
BCD Alert tracks caution, warning and emergency level alerts against traveller bookings. The app delivers emergency level alerts via push notification to the home screen of the mobile device, prompting a list of impacted travellers.
Travel and security managers can contact affected travellers directly from the app via SMS, email or click-to-call. Clients who have enabled emergency response capabilities in the TripSource traveller app also has the added value of seeing who has checked-in as safe so they can focus on the remaining travellers.
The app is the newest addition to BCD Travelâ€™s suite of traveller security solutions, which includes the COVID-19 Information Hub, DecisionSource security map and risk reports, TripSource risk alerts and check-in capabilities, and the Traveler Security Program Assessment.
BCD Alert is globally available to BCD clients with a DecisionSource login via the App Store and Google Play.
