G4S plc UK DK: G4S launches ground-breaking product to revolutionise business travel safety

13 September 2015

G4S, the world's leading security company, today launches the G4S TravelAware
app, a ground-breaking security tool designed to inform business travellers
across the globe.

TravelAware will revolutionise the way organisations protect their employees
by providing travellers with critical and reliable, location-specific
security information through a smartphone app, while managers have access to
precise tracking of app users in real-time. Through an online portal and via
the app, TravelAware enables two-way communication, keeping employees and
managers connected and informed at all times.

In the event an employee is at risk, the system automatically alerts the
management team of the app user's situation and provides the critical
information and tools to coordinate an effective response.

Swedish partner, Global Warning System, has already demonstrated the
effectiveness of its patented technology, for example, during the Fukushima
tsunami in 2011. App users received a SMS alert about the tsunami 47 minutes
before it hit the east coast of Japan; a clear demonstration of how early
warning alerts can save lives..

The product is supported by G4S's Global Intelligence System (GIS), which
combines analysis and advanced data mining technology to keep business
travellers informed. G4S's team of risk experts has unique access to ground
truth intelligence from employees in over 100 countries.

More companies than ever are seeking opportunities in emerging markets. Yet
one in three companies have limited knowledge regarding how it would take to
locate their overseas employees should an incident occur, and over two thirds
of companies admit they could not locate their travelling employees within an
hour of a major incident. G4S TravelAware addresses these challenges.

Anne Tiedemann, Managing Director of G4S Risk Consulting commented:

"Travelling to remote locations or outside the usual tourist infrastructure
means it is vital that employees are prepared and that employers know exactly
where their employees are should an incident occur. This product will
completely change the way companies approach the safety of their travelling

"The unique technology brings location-specific incident alerts to travellers
in real-time, so employees are safeguarded wherever they are and should the
worst happen, employers have the information to get their employees to

The TravelAware app and portal are part of G4S's suite of travel risk
management services, G4S TravelAware, which cater for all travel security
needs, from bespoke pre-travel training and journey management to close
protection and emergency response.
