Intelligence, the travel risk management company, and Roadpost Inc., a
leader in global communications solutions, today announced a strategic
partnership to help business travelers around the world stay connected, safe
and on schedule.
iJET and Roadpost customers can access iJET`s destination
briefings online and iJET`s real-time travel alerts on Roadpost`s cellular
and satellite phones in more than 140 countries worldwide. The services will
be sold under the Global Guardian* brand.
“We are committed to keeping our clients safe and productive on the road,”
said iJET CEO Bruce McIndoe. “Through the Roadpost partnership, our
collective clients will receive personalized, real-time travel alerts and
other critical travel assistance services via their cellular or satellite
phones. This ensures that our travelers are always aware of situations that

iJET analysts, working from their 24/7 operations center, continuously scour
more than 5,500 sources of information and distill crucial details into
intelligence that helps international travelers avoid and manage travel
disruptions. Through the integration of iJET`s WorldLink service and
Roadpost`s wireless communication services, travelers receive real-time,
itinerary-based alerts - directly through their Roadpost cellular or

The combined product, Global Guardian, provides travelers with an enhanced
travel intelligence package, plus global cellular or satellite
