NEW YORK, Nov. 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Rocketrip, the leading technology platform for reducing corporate travel costs, today announced its new duty of care integration with International SOS, the top medical and travel security risk services company. Now through Rocketrip, employers are equipped with the tools to maintain duty of care when employees stay with a friend in lieu of a hotel, and ensure that employees are safe while traveling for work domestically and overseas.
This integration is among the most-requested features from Rocketrip’s enterprise customers, and the framework will allow Rocketrip to easily extend this capability to a number of additional duty of care providers.
“As business travel evolves, it’s important for International SOS to continuously innovate, and our integration with Rocketrip is a prime example of how we’re accomplishing that,” said Tim Daniel, Senior Advisor, Innovation & Business Strategy at International SOS. “Their human-centric approach to corporate travel is very much aligned with how we think about serving the growing needs of our clients.”
“Developing our duty of care integration was a direct response to growing demand from our enterprise customers, especially those with policies that allow employees to stay with a friend instead of at a hotel,” said Dan Ruch, CEO at Rocketrip. “The technical framework we’ve put in place will also allow for seamless integrations with additional duty of care partners to continue providing our clients with the data and solutions they need to maintain world-class employee travel programs.”
Rocketrip’s new duty of care integration will heighten employee security and mitigate risks for those traveling for work. Duty of care standards require companies to ensure the health, safety, and security of their traveling employees. Now Rocketrip customers can access employee trip details, no matter where they’re staying, in order to track and locate employees in case of emergency.
