Traxo, the corporate travel data capture and pre-trip auditing firm; and International SOS, a health and security services provider, announced a new commercial agreement. It provides International SOS clients with immediate access to all travel itinerary data before travel begins, including off-channel bookings occurring outside the client’s mandated corporate travel policy, in real time, enabling enhanced duty of care for business travelers. Andre Fabris, CEO of Traxo, said the new partnership is “coincidentally and perfectly timed” with International SOS’ newly issued global travel risk management benchmark, ISO 31030, which provides “critical guidance on how organizations should effectively address the responsibility of ensuring the security, safety, health and well-being of individuals traveling for work as the world continues to navigate through the travel ramifications of COVID-19.” As a result of the integration with Traxo’s API (application programming interface), when an International SOS corporate client signs with Traxo, both International SOS and its client gain immediate visibility into all travel itinerary data from every booking made outside the client’s mandated corporate travel policy. These previously “invisible bookings,” which can represent as much as 50% of a company's business travel, are automatically detected, audited and processed by Traxo and securely transmitted directly to the International SOS duty-of-care system for immediate risk management coverage seconds after the employee books travel, regardless of channel.
