Munro’s Travel Group signs agreement with Anvil for traveller tracking

The Anvil Group, a specialist in crisis avoidance services, announced that Scotland’s premier travel agency, Munro’s Travel Group, is utilising its Employee Travel Monitoring Solution Agency Edition (ETMS). The ETMS provides Munro’s Travel Group with a solution to monitor its clients’ travel movements and provide assistance to corporate travellers in case a major incident affects their health and safety.

Established in 1903, Munro’s Travel Group, is one of the longest standing travel management companies in the UK. It employs 78 staff in its Aberdeen offices and acts as the business travel specialist to many of the UK based oil and gas companies. By providing solutions to meet travel requirements of the corporate traveller, Munro’s Travel Group realised that it needed to empower its clients with a tool that would provide insightful information of every employee’s travel movements in case of an emergency.

“We were already at the forefront of utilising a broad range of IT solutions to make our customers’ experience more enjoyable,” says Munro’s Travel Group Partner, Murray Burnett. “We felt that The Anvil Group’s ETMS would complement our existing portfolio of services and further address the all important safety and security measures, which have come increasingly relevant with the advent of the Corporate Homicide Act.”

The ETMS Agency Edition monitors employees air, rail and hotel only reservations as well as providing alerts of incidents relevant to the traveller via e-mail and SMS. It also provides each traveller with a pre-trip briefing. Solutions such as the ETMS have become increasingly pertinent due to the advent of the Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Acts.

ETMS provides Munro’s Travel with an auditable track of communication which can be used to examine travel policies, HR processes when booking travel and to mount a legal defence in case a Corporate Manslaughter/Homicide prosecution is brought forward. “As many of our corporate clients travel to potentially hazardous environments, we felt that the Anvil Group’s ETMS would not only help us in providing an added service to our clients, but would put us ahead of the competition,” adds Burnett. “We are now able to offer our clients with a one-stop-shop service for all of their business travel needs.”

“Traveller tracking used to be available only to large corporations, however, with our ETMS Agency edition, travel management companies, such as Munro’s Travel Group are able to provide their customers with an enterprise level solution, which provides a valuable tool under the impending Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act,” adds The Anvil Group Director, Matthew Judge. “We are really pleased to be working with Munro’s Travel Group to provide its clients with a tool to monitor employee travel movements worldwide.”
