New partnership provides business travelers with robust safety insights prior to travel
Tripkicks continues to add value through strategic alliances with the announcement of a new partnership with Riskline, the leading travel risk and intelligence company for the travel industry. Riskline is a risk assessment pioneer that tracks potential travel threats and keeps customers informed through accurate, actional intelligence. With this partnership, Tripkicks further strengthens its highly respected location-based traveler safety and risk insights, including a new capability to tailor risk assessments to a granular, city-by-city level.
As business travel continues to rebound, 89% of business travelers expect their company to protect their health and safety while traveling, according to a survey of 3850 business travelers across 25 global markets conducted by SAP Concur, which features Tripkicks as an App Center Partner. Given the critical role employers play in facilitating a productive trip, safety information is crucial for helping employers and employees prepare accordingly. Tripkicks makes it easy for companies to provide the right insights and guidance for their business travelers, which helps to improve the traveler experience.
“Adding Riskline to our growing industry-leading partnership helps to ensure that business travelers are set up for success”, said Tripkicks CEO Jeff Berk. “With insights on safety, health, and risks, in addition to essential local background information, our travelers are now more informed and equipped to make better decisions and effectively navigate their destination. Safe, productive business trips require travelers to be more informed, and this begins at the booking process”.
Tripkicks is an App Center Partner of SAP Concur, and companies who have Tripkicks activated within SAP Concur Travel can expect to see expanded content resulting from this partnership.
