Corporate Travel Technology Specialist Trondent Adds Covid Controls to Pre-Trip Approval Tools

Trondent | January 14, 2021

Corporate travel technology expert Trondent Development Corp. has added another Covid-19 informing add-on to its Authorizer AI and Authorizer Pro pre-trip approval platforms, empowering travel supervisors to convey important Covid-related data and cautions via email to travelers and trip approvers, the organization reported. Travel administrators can choose from various data parameters to decide when an alarm is sent and which data is incorporated, in view of organization strategy, Trondent said. Messaging can incorporate a scope of traits for a particular objective, for example, number of cases, late contamination patterns, lockdown and social removing boundaries and passage necessities. When a traveler attempts to book an outing, an email specifying in- and out-of-compliance aspects of the booking is sent to the approver, who can approve or deny the request. After an trip is endorsed, the traveler gets an email with destination-relevant Covid-related information and corporate policy information. Pre-trip endorsement boundaries have seen a resurgence in the midst of the continuous Covid-19 pandemic as corporate travel managers try to satisfy duty-of-care responsibilities. Suppliers including Adelman Travel and Cornerstone Information Systems have turned out new devices intended to incorporate Covid-explicit policy elements into pre-trip approval flows.
