Terra Dotta Launches Enterprise Travel Registry Solution


Robust Platform Offers Comprehensive Approach to Traveler Duty of Care for Higher Education Institutions

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (PRWEB) August 14, 2018

Terra Dotta, the leader in higher education travel, study abroad and international program management solutions, today debuted its Enterprise Travel Registry solution. The platform offers universities and colleges a comprehensive approach to proactive duty of care and risk management for keeping faculty, staff and independent student travelers safe.

"Having the ability to easily locate and connect with university-affiliated travelers during a possible emergency or crisis – as well as prepare them for specialized or high-risk geographies – is critical for upholding institutions' commitment to proper duty of care," said Brandon Lee, CEO of Terra Dotta. "We developed Enterprise Travel Registry to help institutions maintain and enforce their foundational travel safety and approval protocols and reduce overall institutional legal risk before, during and after all off-campus travel events."

Enterprise Travel Registry includes all key features of Terra Dotta's Express Travel Registry solution – launched in Fall 2017 – which is designed to help institutions confirm the location of all faculty, staff and independently traveling students by easily capturing their travel details via forms or emailed itineraries.

Additionally it offers more robust risk mitigation capabilities including the ability to deploy customized questionnaires, waivers and important shared content prior to high-risk or specialized travel scenarios, refined workflows based on each traveler's destination and role, as well as customized travel approval processes designed to align with and automate institutions' travel approval policies. These features enable institutions to confirm proper pre-trip information sharing and approval protocols based on traveler destinations, activities, roles (i.e., student, faculty, staff), and other critical risk factors.

The solution also includes Terra Dotta's AlertTraveler™ mobile app, which proactively alerts travelers when a local or regional emergency situation – such as a natural disaster, political situation or health epidemic – may affect them. The app automatically pulls in travelers' itinerary information and uses GPS technology to precisely determine which travelers may be impacted. Higher education institutions can utilize the app's push notifications, email and SMS text messaging capabilities to communicate directly with affected travelers, issue and track responses to check-in requests, and share safety instructions.
