iJET Travel Intelligence
recently upgraded its Worldcue services, providing enhanced traveler tracking, expanded domestic and international monitoring and improved communication with travelers.
In response to requests from Worldcue clients who have been using the service since it was launched in April 2001, iJET`s WorldcueTracker now tracks and locates travelers by their airport, airline, flight and hotel, as well as their travel dates and destinations. WorldcueTracker is an integrated component of the Worldcue platform, which enables companies` travel, security, human resources and risk management professionals to stay abreast of changing conditions that may impact travelers, instantly see which of their travelers are affected and, if desired, immediately contact those travelers.
iJET also launched Travel Intelligence coverage of U.S. destinations with 24/7 monitoring of 50 cities, with a focus on airports, airlines, security-related issues and ground transportation. Travelers covered by iJET`s Worldcue services receive real-time travel alerts via e-mail or wireless device about events that may impact their travel. These alerts include recommendations from iJET`s professional intelligence analysts for avoiding or minimizing travel disruptions.
The value of U.S. monitoring for travelers was substantiated immediately upon the expanded service launch. Travelers to Washington, D.C. received a travel alert about the high likelihood of street demonstrations during April 20-22 World Bank and IMF meetings in that city. In contrast to general news reports, the iJET alert contained specific details on street closures, expected behavior by demonstrators and police and areas to avoid-with enough advance warning that travelers could change their plans if appropriate.
