San Francisco, California, Aug. 22, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Deem, a leading mobile and cloud technology provider for the business travel industry, announced an expanded partnership with FocusPoint International to integrate their travel assistance membership Crisis Assistance Plus (CAP™) into Deem’s Work Fource. More than 35,000 corporations and travel management companies around the world use Deem’s Work Fource to book travel online.
“With business travel projected to reach $1.6 trillion by 2020, it is imperative corporations embrace duty of care solutions for their traveling workforce,” said John F. Rizzo, President and Chief Operating Officer, Deem. “Travel managers can rest easy knowing their travelers are using a powerful safety and security tool like CAP™.”
CAP™ memberships include access to the most up to date destination-based health, safety and security information; itinerary-based traveler tracking; on-demand access to travel security and medical specialists; and in-country assistance encompassing the complete spectrum of health, safety, and security-related perils, up to and including physical evacuations for no additional cost to the member.
“The implementation of CAP™ into Deem’s Work Fource travel software platform signifies DEEM’s sincere dedication to providing their clients with the highest quality of safety and security,” said Greg Pearson, President and CEO of FocusPoint.
CAP™ members are fully covered for an array of security and medical related incidents from terrorism, violent crime, and political threat to medical coverages such as evacuation to a home hospital of choice.
“Developing this strategic partnership with FocusPoint to offer CAP™ travel assistance memberships with our clients conveys our understanding of the heightened geopolitical uncertainties travelers face and the need for a comprehensive duty of care plan,” said Mike Daly, Vice President Travel and Car Services. “It presents millions of travelers with the most comprehensive travel assistance coverage in the market.”
“CAP™ is not insurance, but rather an enhancement to any insurance plan contemplated by business travelers,” said Pearson. “Benefits are provided at no additional cost."
