Deem Introduces Travel SafetyCheck, a New Risk Prevention and Travel Safety Solution
DEEM PLANS CONTINUING ROLL-OUT OF TECHNOLOGY FEATURES - AIMED AT BOLSTERING DUTY OF CARE AND BUSINESS TRAVELER CONFIDENCE - IN ITS ONLINE BOOKING SOFTWARE
San Francisco, CA – July 7, 2020 - Deem, a leading mobile and cloud technology provider for the corporate travel industry, today announced its plan to enhance functionality that will allow travelers to make more informed decisions to reduce risk and improve safety while traveling in a novel coronavirus era.
In its new Travel SafetyCheck product, Deem will provide curated, real-time key data points across hotel, ground, and flight offerings. Travelers can quickly review information that includes environmental data, cleanliness procedures, pandemic hot spots, and service provider regulations and safety procedures. Travel SafetyCheck will be included without additional fees for all customers using the Deem platform. It is due for release in early fall 2020.
“We have an opportunity and an obligation to help business travelers feel confident about being on the road again,” said John F. Rizzo, CEO, Deem. “Empowering travelers to make the best choices for themselves and their businesses, wherever they need to go, is at the heart of our mission to transform business travel.”
Sourced from several different data points, health and safety information will be available for locations based on a hotel’s neighborhood. Additionally, Travel SafetyCheck will show users a map displaying the volume of historic and current confirmed COVID-19 cases, as well as resources to learn more and get additional help.
“The pandemic has drastically accelerated the need for technology to provide enhanced solutions for travelers,” said Todd Kaiser, SVP Business Development and Strategy, Deem. “We are focused on building products and services that help travelers understand conditions while they are traveling, as well as help protect them in the event of a crisis.”
Planned future enhancements
The second phase of the Travel SafetyCheck program will share information on airlines, flights and ground. As airlines and ground transport providers implement new policies, Deem will present insight into each airline’s policy as well as details for specific flights, such as if middle seats are bookable or if masks are required. This phase is expected to be released later in 2020.
“When developing solutions for customers, we consider their input carefully,” said Neil Markey, CIO, Deem. “We strive to understand their current concerns and look for ways to be proactive for their future needs.”
