Los Angeles, California – February 26, 2016. IMG GlobalSecur, a leading international security consulting firm, has announced an informational synopsis on travel security for study abroad programs concerning its FoneTrac® travel security app. The FoneTrac blog aims to explain travel security issues in down-to-earth language for busy Internet readers.
“Many of our clients are employers with employees abroad,” explained Chris Hagon, CEO of IMG GlobalSecur. “We have learned, however, that many universities and colleges have study abroad programs and are very interested in new technological ways to improve the security of their students in places as diverse as Beijing, Tokyo, Frankfurt, and Mexico City. Our latest blog post explains some of these issues in easy-to-understand language.”

Interested parties are reminded that this post is just the proverbial ‘tip of the iceberg’ and are urged to reach out for a consultation with one of the firm’s security experts. The security needs of individual college and university study abroad programs, of course, can be quite different.
FoneTrac: Features and Benefits for Study Abroad Programs
FoneTrac allows employers and employees as well as other types of travelers (e.g., study abroad students and universities) to communicate traveler whereabouts, facilitate checkins, push out security updates, and access on-the-ground support services in an emergency. Compatible with both iPhone and Android, the FoneTrac app is agnostic as to the phone an employee or participant in a study abroad program may prefer. In addition, the app has the useful feature of live support: it connects with live help for travel security updates and is also keyed into medical security updates. It can also be connected to local resources, such as police, fire, and medical.
