Mobile Tracking System Launches for Travellers
FCm Travel Solutions UK has unveiled a new mobile phone alert system to provide clients with email and mobile SMS text alerts.
Clients subscribing to IRRIDIS who want information on their staff travelling to or in a particular location, can send an SMS message to the IRRIDIS server at any time quoting either a country or destination name. The system sends an automatic response within 60 seconds by SMS telling the client how many travellers they have in the destination and the number of staff scheduled to travel there. Users of IRRIDIS are assigned a five-digit password that, for heightened security, must be supplied when issuing a request for information.
In the event of a major incident, all clients subscribing to IRRIDIS receive an automatic system-wide alert from FCm Travel Solutions UK to a nominated registered mobile telephone.
IRRIDIS provides clients with pre- and on-trip traveller information to a given destination for all air, rail, hotel, car hire and ferry bookings made through FCm Travel Solutions.
In addition, two reports will be emailed to the subscriber providing detailed information such as flight number and routing, hotel name and destination, car hire company, pick up and drop off points.
Alex Woodworth, director account management, FCm Travel Solutions UK commented: “Security is high on our clients’ list of priorities these days and we work closely with them to find solutions to meet not only their commercial requirements, but also the need for their employees to travel as safely as possible. IRRIDIS provides our clients with the ability to track the movements of their travellers at any time within seconds”.
