iJET Intelligent Risk Systems has reported record revenues for 2006, representing an increase of more than 50
percent over 2005.
“We’re pleased to experience such growth as we extend the focus of our
solutions beyond travel risk management to meet our clients’ broader
operational risk management needs,” said Bruce McIndoe, iJET’s CEO. “We
look forward to continuing to enhance our services and building on
momentum with key channel partners to provide further value to our
New and Expanded Services
Building upon its core risk management technology system, in 2006 iJET
introduced Worldcue(r) Global Control Center, the first integrated
platform to relate global operating risks to organizations’ people and
assets around the world. Enhanced later in the year with portal
technology, new functionality and an improved user interface, Global
Control Center provides multinational corporations and government
organizations actionable and predictive intelligence around threats to
their traveling employees, expatriates, facilities and suppliers. Global
organizations benefit from accelerated decision support for a
continuously evolving threat landscape.
iJET launched two additional offerings in 2006. In April, the company
established its World Pandemic Monitor. This service provides an ongoing
analysis and weekly report of mission-critical intelligence for the
pandemic planner, ensuring complete situational awareness around the
threat of an emerging avian flu pandemic and other global health
concerns. Later in the year, iJET released the inaugural issue of the
Monthly Intelligence Forecast, a publication designed to offer
multinational organizations a strategic view of key issues and trends
affecting their global assets and operations. The report delivers
predictive intelligence on world events and situations that may impact
an organization’s people, assets or supply chains in the weeks and
In 2006, iJET teamed with Unisys Corp. to serve a number of U.S.
government agencies. iJET’s Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) and
consulting capabilities paired with information systems and consulting
expertise from Unisys provide critical elements to monitor and protect
the U.S. against terrorism and other homeland security risks.
“Threat intelligence from iJET is a valuable element of Unisys solutions
to protect, track and trace the supply chains, personnel, assets and
borders of our clients,” said Brian Seagrave, Unisys vice president and
general manager for border security.
iJET’s growth and success in 2006 can also be partially attributed to
momentum with key travel industry channel partners, including a
successful year of partnership with Carlson Wagonlit Travel (CWT), the
world’s second-largest travel management company. CWT partners with iJET
to provide clients with an enhanced travel risk management offering with
tools designed to monitor risk, prepare and help protect corporate
travelers, and respond to emergencies 24x7.
“Partnerships can be challenging endeavors, as each party attempts to
find the proper balance point in serving their own as well as clients’
needs,” said Marty Pfinsgraff, iJET’s COO. “We are extremely pleased to
be developing early successes with two industry leaders such as Carlson
Wagonlit and Unisys.”
Travel Risk Management Thought Leadership
Unveiled at a safety and security seminar hosted by CWT in November,
iJET established the Travel Risk Management Maturity Model(tm)
(TRM3(tm)), an innovative framework enabling organizations to assess
their travel risk management programs and benchmark against others in
the marketplace. Already receiving acclaim among industry professionals
and practitioners, this self-assessment model is designed to help
corporate travel managers move their programs to the next level.
Positioning for Continued Growth in 2007
Continued enhancements to iJET’s Worldcue Global Control Center portal
product are planned for 2007 and the company is preparing for a number
of broad-scale implementations by clients. iJET also anticipates
continued growth momentum with Unisys, CWT and other key partners.
