Philadelphia - Cigna has introduced a new tool designed to allow companies to stay connected to employees during times of crisis. Travel Locator Service is a Web-based tool that combines worldwide medical and security intelligence with illness and accident medical coverage designed expressly for international business travelers. Philadelphia-based Cigna says the tool is available with its Medical Benefits Abroad service, and is designed to provide companies with employees abroad a detailed alert to quickly identify which employees are traveling on business and where -- pinpointing the exact whereabouts of traveling professionals down to country, city, and hotel location - so that employers can immediately communicate with traveling employees.

The Travel Locator Service enables companies to monitor world events, receive real-time alerts, and respond quickly to manage risks and protect traveling employees. Travel information is downloaded automatically from a company's central travel booking agency to the Travel Locator Service Web site. Employers can search the Travel Locator Service Web site by traveler's name, country or city of destination, travel dates, airline and flights, as well as hotel location risk ratings by city, country or continent. Employers also receive daily reports on traveler's bookings to high or extreme risk medical and security destinations and "Monday morning" reports with details about risk exposure for the coming week. Additionally, a single click on the Travel Locator Web site allows employers to send e-mails immediately to travelers and managers.
