International SOS and IDV Solutions Announce Groundbreaking Partnership
Collaborative effort leverages International SOS’ medical and security risk services with IDV Solutions’ leading security and risk visualization technology
PHILADELPHIA and LANSING, Mich., April 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — International SOS, the world’s leading medical and security services provider, and IDV Solutions, the leading physical security and risk visualization software company, today announce an exclusive, long-term commercial and technological partnership that offers their customers an extended range of options for tracking and protecting travelers, expatriates, employees and assets.
International SOS’ TravelTracker and IDV Solutions’ Visual Command Center provide two distinct, yet complementary, solutions to navigate some of the most challenging business environments. Used together, the two linked platforms will share data, offering an expanded and sophisticated solution for risk awareness and response.
TravelTracker and Visual Command Center will deliver increased situational awareness for travelers, expatriates, employees and assets. This information will be visualized with International SOS security and medical alerts, other sources of risk (like severe weather, terrorism, natural disasters, traffic, and more), and additional internal commercial information (like the location of supply lanes or operations).
“This places us at the cutting edge of travel risk management technology,” said Tim Daniel, International SOS Group Executive Vice President. “We’re very pleased to introduce IDV Solutions, a market leader and a strong partner, to our clients who are looking for a broader tracking solution and risk visualization.”
With access to International SOS’ extensive global network of medical and security travel expertise, IDV Solutions will offer newly enhanced risk intelligence for its successful Visual Command Center.
“This is about opening new doors as we grow our business,” said Mark Morrison, CEO of IDV Solutions. “International SOS brings to the table relationships built over decades and we’re excited about the opportunity to work together to provide an end-to-end solution.”
