Woburn, MA (PRWEB) November 10, 2014
Travizon Inc., a globally-recognized travel management company, today announced a new partnership with TripLingo, to enhance its Duty of Care support services. TripLingo is primarily a translation application for overseas business travelers, but it also offers important safety features that can be integrated with companies’ risk management tools, and offers significant savings opportunities for international cell phone users. The TripLingo app will allow cell phone users avoid costly roaming charges and overpaying for WiFi services while traveling overseas.
"We are excited to partner with TripLingo and tap into their forward-thinking technology,” said Anita Salvatore, EVP, Global Account Services at Travizon. “In particular, we are impressed by TripLingo’s ability to deliver cost savings and the integration ability with risk management providers like International SOS. This collaboration will greatly improve our clients' Duty of Care initiatives."
Duty of Care is an employer’s moral and legal obligation to protect the health, safety, and security of its employees—particularly those who are traveling to or stationed in positions outside U.S. borders. International business travel can often pose heightened health and safety risks—including traffic accidents, natural disasters, terror threats, international crime, and personal health emergencies. Many organizations work with dedicated risk management providers, like International SOS, for medical and security assistance abroad. Putting location-specific safety tools in travelers’ hands is an important next step for companies in the global marketplace.
“We created TripLingo to improve business travel experiences—keeping travelers safe, productive, and savvy during their international trips,” explained Jesse Maddox, Co-founder and CEO of TripLingo. “Working with Travizon and its many enterprise clients reaffirms our mission. With their input, we’ll continue to build enhanced safety features and travel ROI tools.”
“We are very pleased to collaborate with Travizon to support their customers," echoed Roger Gould, VP of Sales at TripLingo. "Duty of Care continues to be an important priority for companies, and they are looking for more robust ways to support their international travelers. Our partnership will offer Travizon customers a customized TripLingo version to ensure their travelers are safe and productive.”
TripLingo was founded in 2011 as a solution to the numerous language and cultural barriers that international business travelers often confront. Since then, the app has expanded to include smart travel features—like currency conversion, local emergency numbers, general safety information, and essential medical terminology. In 2013, TripLingo was selected by GBTA as the “Business Travel Innovation of the Year.”
