Government-issued Advisories in the U.S. and UK Automatically Sent through the In-telligent App Enable Users to Change Travel Plans if Needed
Chicago, IL — December 20, 2018 — In-telligent, a technology company delivering a personal safety and emergency communications platform designed to keep individuals around the world more informed and safer during emergency situations and important time-sensitive events, today announced the availability of government-issued travel advisories through the In-telligent app.
With In-telligent, travel advisories issued by the U.S. and the UK government agencies warning of weather-related and personal safety concerns in countries around the world are delivered to all users that are connected to these Groups. By alerting travelers of potential safety concerns in countries or locations they plan to visit, users have immediate access to government-issued notifications so they can change their travel plans if they choose. Advisories are issued for safety-related issues occurring in a specific country such as severe weather, political unrest, disease outbreaks, and more.
Additionally, with In-telligent’s new SOS Button, individuals have immediate, one-touch access to emergency services in the country they are visiting, giving them instant access to help from local first responders. The app also includes contact information for embassies of the U.S., UK, Ireland, Brazil, India, Canada, and France in every country around the world, giving residents from those countries traveling in any foreign location a way to quickly reach their respective embassy if they lose their passport or have another urgent situation.
“In-telligent is a must-have travel tool that keeps people safer and informed while traveling anywhere in the world,” said Allan Sutherland, Founder and CEO of In-telligent. “Travel advisories are issued frequently, and yet many people don’t have real-time access to the latest information. In-telligent puts this critical information in users’ hands immediately, enabling them to change plans if needed, and also gives them a way to instantly reach support or emergency assistance in critical situations. Our biggest concern is keeping people safer no matter where they are. With these features, the In-telligent app is a powerful tool that does just that.”
Currently In-telligent offers travel advisories issued by the U.S. and UK goverments, and will extend this feature to include countries in the coming months. To receive the U.S. State Department-issued alerts, users must be connected to the applicable travel group for the country they are traveling to (e.g. U.S. Int’l Travel Advisories – Africa). For the UK, all travel alerts for every country are sent through the Int’l Travel Advisories – UK group.
The combination of travel alerts with one-touch emergency and embassy contact information are designed to give In-telligent users greater peace of mind when they need it most. Just by having In-telligent on their phone, users will be prepared for emergencies and critical events with the quick delivery of, access to, and viewing of location-specific alerts – even under the most challenging emergency conditions, no matter where they are in the world. Additionally, In-telligent has thousands of emergency support numbers built right into the platform, giving people access to emergency assistance without having to know the number.
