Cambridge, United Kingdom, January 18, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Voyage Manager and Northcott Global Solutions (NGS) today announced a partnership agreement for Voyage Manager to supply NGS with a customized version of Voyage Manager’s new “VM Light” service for tracking and monitoring personnel.
The partnership shows NGS’s commitment to provide their clients with bespoke and integrated global safe travel and itinerary tracking support services. Voyage Manager’s VM Light provides essential travel monitoring and status reports, tailored to customers’ requirements. Further it allows Voyage Manager to expand into the security sector which has double digit growth annually.
Global business requires companies’ most prized assets, their people, to travel globally or to work in remote / high risk areas of the world that are exposed to a variety of threats, including operational incidents, natural disasters and terrorism.
In some cases, travellers may not be missed until they are overdue on their return – especially where communications are affected by working in different time zones. In seconds VM’s traveller locator system can accurately identify and communicate where travellers are located at any time. It is essential that companies safeguard their business by providing their travelling staff with immediate assistance or support that may be crucial to their health, safety, security, or even their lives. The VM traveller itinerary and real-time tracking capabilities allows greater duty of care to be exercised, even in the most challenging environments.
"The VM and NGS safe travel expertise will speed up reaction time and keep our clients in the picture about all staff movement around the world. Whether calamity has struck affecting a whole region, or and individual traveller is in need of repatriation, VM’s itinerary tracking and NGS will resolve matters fast," says Ted Jones, CEO of Northcott Global Solutions.
"We are excited about the partnership as there are clear synergies between what NGS and we provide. It not only extends NGS’s functionality to a new level but it also brings NGS’s evacuation and incident management services to Voyage Manager’s existing and new customer base," says John Scott, CEO of Voyage Manager Ltd.
Response to travel related incidents will no longer be delayed by lack of awareness, slow access to vital facts or poor synchronisation between different internal systems. The VM’s itinerary tracking system is monitored 24 hour a day from NGS’s world class operations room located in the centre of London and sets a new standard in safe travel management, risk avoidance and corporate governance.
