BURLINGTON, Mass., November 16, 2021 — Everbridge, Inc. (NASDAQ: EVBG), the global leader in critical event management (CEM) today announced the introduction of its next-generation Travel Risk Management (TRM) solution for new and existing customers. Everbridge offers the only global travel risk, operational resilience and occupational health management solutions, integrated within a market-leading critical event management platform, for helping businesses and organizations quickly locate and communicate with traveling employees, remote workers, and those returning to the office, who may be in harm’s way.
With more than 20 years’ experience in the CEM and risk intelligence space, Everbridge provides FORTUNE 500 and Global 2000 organizations with the market-leading solution to fulfill their Duty of Care for all employees and remote workers, supported by the Riskmatics® platform from Anvil Group, an Everbridge Company. The Riskmatics® platform and 24/7 response center supports thousands of requests each year to provide medical, security and travel assistance and advice to those in need.
Everbridge’s next-generation Travel Risk Management solution now further extends the Everbridge CEM platform to offer business, healthcare and government organizations the functionality they increasingly require to keep their people safe wherever they go. In addition to medical and security assistance and a 24/7 response center, Everbridge’s advanced TRM solution also helps organizations build standards to meet or exceed the recently published International Organization for Standardization ISO 31030 guidance.
“With ISO’s recent publication of standard 31030, enterprises are looking to adopt its guidelines on how to manage risks for organizations and their travelers, including threat detection, risk assessment, and prevention and mitigation strategies,” said Connor Taylor, Technology Analyst in the ESG & Sustainability practice at Verdantix. “Everbridge remains very well positioned to benefit from increased interest and attention to travel-related risk. In fact, just as organizations are improving their formulation of playbooks for managing traveler and remote work risk, Everbridge is accelerating the execution of its strategic product roadmap to bring additional travel risk management capabilities in-house.”
Everbridge will showcase its next-generation Travel Risk Management offering at the Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) Convention 2021 taking place this week, November 17-19 in Orlando, Florida at the Orange County Convention Center. To learn more about best practices for Duty of Care, enterprise resilience, the Future of Work, and technology for safeguarding the travel experience, visit the Anvil Group booth #1707 at GBTA, featuring Everbridge.
“Organizations need to be much more proactive in their risk management,” said Matthew Judge, managing director of Anvil Group, now an Everbridge Company. “Our highly-evolved risk management system delivers 360 degree threat awareness and dynamic intelligence on volatile incidents, mapped against an organization’s critical assets, so that security leaders can take informed actions. Everbridge provides the industry’s most definitive, end-to-end system to protect an organization’s people and assets, drive compliance and attain operational resilience.”
Travel Risk Management remains an important critical event management (CEM) use case for enterprises and essential for long-term success, especially as business travel increases. The Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) expects business travel to exceed pre-pandemic levels by 2025, and a recent GBTA poll showed that, globally, suppliers and travel management company respondents see optimism about the industry’s path to recovery with half (50%) indicating that they felt more optimistic than they did the previous month.
“The combination of Anvil’s Riskmatics platform with CEM will provide medical, security and travel assistance and advice to those in need, and help keep people safe, wherever they go,” said Eric Boger, Senior Director, Global Intelligence and Analysis at Everbridge. “Riskmatics further extends our position as the leader in critical event management and risk intelligence, which remains especially timely with today’s evolving travel and remote work location trends.”
