Concerns about international business travel are growing in light of recent events. IMG GlobalSecur has announced an important post on the value of a smartphone app for business travelers.

Travel Security App

International Travel Security & Executive Safety (Travel Security App)

People often mistakenly think of apps as the province of games and teenagers.

IMG GlobalSecur, a leading international security consulting firm, is proud to announce an important post to its FoneTrac blog explaining why travel safety apps for smartphones such as the iPhone or Android should not be considered only for youth travelers. Managers of corporate travel for large organizations may not realize how convenient yet important a travel safety app can be in the corporate environment.

"People often mistakenly think of apps as the province of games and teenagers," explained Chris Hagon, CEO of IMG GlobalSecur. "Our proprietary FoneTrac app, in contrast, leverages the power of the smartphone to bring important security services to business travelers via their iPhone or Android device. Our recent post highlights the key benefits of this new innovation."

International Travel Security: the Power of an App

To date, most travel safety apps have focused on the youth market and have been low in value. They have been either free or very low cost, with very limited functionality. A common scenario is an app that, when accessed, can alert friends and family that a person is being mugged. The ironic and possibly tragic problem here is that the friends and family may be thousands of miles away and unable to render any timely assistance.

The informative, new blog post lays out an explanation of why business travelers also need a travel safety app. It is meant so that a corporate travel manager has a handy explanation and justification that he or she can take to upper management to justify the expense of empowering business executive and key employees with a state-of-the-art travel safety app.

Support for Many Platforms with Real Person Communicative Capabilities

With support for iPhone, Android, and Blackberry as well as Windows Phones and both Android and Apple tablets, FoneTrac is not only platform-agnostic, which is great for organizations with many employees using different types of phones. It is also, in contrast to simpler competitors, more than a mere travel safety app; it is a gateway app that leverages the GlobalSecur network to access real people, in real time, with real on-the-ground experience at countries around the blog.
