Ultramar enhances security offering

Ultramar Travel Management is teaming up with iJET Intelligent Risk Systems (iJET) to offer a new travel security solution.
Ultramar’s Travel Risk Management solution, powered by iJET will provide clients with detailed travel intelligence and destination reports, access to emergency response services worldwide and traveler tracking and communications capabilities. 

“As the quality of online booking services increases, many travel managers and business travelers are opting for cost-efficient, self-service models when it comes to researching, arranging and managing their trips,” said Peter Klebanow, President of Ultramar.  “Through our strategic partnership with iJET, we have enhanced our already integrated, secure technology and are now pleased to offer additional superior risk management solutions to all of our clients.”

A variety of tools will be available to Ultramar’s clients to help them to stay abreast of global risks and ensure safe traveling experiences.  These tools will include iJET’s detailed destination reports and trip briefs, as well as real-time, itinerary-specific alerts delivered straight to a corporate travel manager’s - or a traveler’s - email, PDA or cell phone. 

Corporate clients will also be able to track and communicate with their travelers in real-time and access iJET’s database of continuously updated global intelligence for over 400 destinations worldwide and across 10 categories of risk.

“Reduced liability, enhanced control and compliance, lowered cost of recovery and decreased need for incident response are a few of the benefits that Ultramar clients will be able to achieve through this new offering” said Marty Pfinsgraff, iJET’s Chief Operating Officer.
