IMG GlobalSecur, a leading international security consulting firm, is proud to announce a ‘think piece’ post to its FoneTrac blog explaining how a travel security app can be used to enhance employee travel security to/from Mexico as well as improve employee monitoring solutions, including itinerary-like information.

“Employee travel to or from Mexico creates unique security challenges,” explained Chris Hagon, CEO of IMG GlobalSecur. “Daily travel to or from Mexico can create a false sense of security among corporations and their employees, until an event such as a security or travel emergency brings information awareness to the forefront. This post explains how using an innovative travel security app can increase employee monitoring compliance in a fully transparent way.”

Travel Security to/from Mexico: the Power of an App

Mexico, of course, is a foreign country even though it lies on the border with the United States. However, many companies send employees both back and forth the border between the two countries often on a daily basis. This frequent travel can create a false sense of security, and create difficulty securing employee compliance with “check ins” and itinerary monitoring. In comparison with a trip to China or Saudia Arabia, a trip to Mexico may not have a detailed itinerary. Yet the employer is still obligated to keep track of employees, so that in the event of an emergency they can be informed and updated. Indeed, employees themselves can benefit from the ability to access 24/7 help via the GlobalSecur system, as for example in getting assistance during a travel emergency. This new blog post explains how to think about employee security in Mexico while leveraging the power of the smart phone.
