TORONTO, July 15, 2015 /CNW/ - Intrepid 24/7, a global medical, security, and travel assistance company within the Ingle International group of companies, is changing the landscape of business travel with its award-winning, white-labelled native mobile and web application, Travel Navigator™.
Travel Navigator™ was launched by ACE Group, a global insurance provider, as the ACE Travel Smart mobile app and is now available to millions of business travellers in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. The app is available on both iOS and Android devices, with options for BlackBerry and Windows. ACE Group's Asia-Pacific division is also reviewing opportunities to offer the app to their clients as part of their business strategy and duty of care mandate.
"We are pleased to have worked with ACE Group and to see our partnership flourish across their network," says Robin Ingle, Chairman and CEO of Intrepid 24/7. "Working with ACE, we developed the ACE Travel Smart app that travellers can use for pre, during, and post travel information, with real-time interactive communication. The app is a collaboration of research, security analysis, global medical expertise, and technology that engages, informs, and protects its users." explains Ingle.
"What makes Travel Navigator™ so unique is its white-label options and integration with the client's core business features. Our team will assess each client's needs and customize the app to keep travellers safe, informed, and protected," says Ingle. Travel Navigator™ is a customizable service for any organization with travellers—from corporations to governments. The app is useful for everyday business travellers to C-level executives, and travel managers. Travel Navigator™ integrates with clients' core business functions, such as travel bookings, claims, assistance, and insurance portals. The app also integrates with other travel and financial service applications, including e-wallets, e-commerce, transportation information, guides, and expense tracking tools.
As a content-rich platform, Travel Navigator™ is equipped with interactive functions and resources such as real-time alerts, flight tracking and re-routing, geo-tracking options, immediate access to assistance, and a geo-pointing/geo-mapping health care provider search tool. Users also have access to downloadable, location-specific information, such as embassies, emergency numbers, and a library of travel health conditions and medications. Clients can implement Travel Navigator™ as part of their corporate strategy and duty of care mandate.
