International SOS marked a milestone for the company's mobile travel assistance application for members by announcing that since the app was released in September 2011 it has been downloaded by more than 50,000 users. The announcement is made as International SOS participates in the 2012 GBTA Convention in Boston, a gathering of business travel thought leaders. This app, and its adoption by thousands of business travelers over the last several months, exemplifies a continuing mobile technology trend in the corporate travel sphere. "We know that thorough preparation is key to traveling safely, and the app puts medical and security information in the hands of travelers and expatriates," said John Rendeiro, VP of Global Security & Intelligence for International SOS.
"Travelers want to Increase their level of safety when away from home, and this powerful medium is a great way to stay informed of constantly changing conditions. This technology gives travelers peace of mind and confidence to travel anywhere in the world." As the only medical and travel security app integrated into a global assistance infrastructure, the app provides members with immediate access to location-specific alerts as they are issued by International SOS' medical and security teams.
