Chubb launches traveller safety app
22 May 2019 - by
Chubb has launched the Chubb Travel Smart app for business travellers.
Chubb Travel Smart is the company’s duty-of-care solution designed specifically for employees, to help manage and mitigate risks as they travel for work.
The app provides a range of benefits for business travellers, including pre-travel eLearning, direct access to medical and security assistance and live location-based alerts to help avoid trouble and stay safe.
For risk managers and human resources teams, Chubb Travel Smart provides an online dashboard for an instant and complete summary of travelling employees, including their location and whether they are in a high-risk area.
It is integrated with country-specific advice and includes recommended vaccinations, cultural do’s and don’ts and visa/passport requirements. It also allows travellers to receive messages from their employer by email or SMS directly to their smartphone.
Luke Powis, A&H Corporate and Affinity Manager at Chubb South Africa, said: “A recent study showed that 87% of travellers have travel safety concerns, with crime, health and terrorism as the greatest travelling threats. We have developed this tool to help clients pro-actively mitigate their travel risks, and move away from simply being an insurer that pays the claims.”
