Cornerstone Risk Messenger – new automation helps companies and their employees return to travel safely.
Bloomington, IN, November 18, 2020. Cornerstone Information Systems has introduced a new, automated traveler communication platform that delivers personalized, destination-specific COVID information, designed to optimize travel agency workflow. The communication tool provides the most current information on health risk levels and local conditions thanks to Cornerstone’s partnership with launch partner Sitata Inc. Cornerstone’s Risk Messenger allows for automated communication with travelers at critical touchpoints throughout their trips. Customized emails can also provide business travelers with company travel and expense policy information, destination risk updates, and automated routing of trip approvals.
“Travelers are eager to return to travel once they believe it is safe,” according to Mat Orrego, Cornerstone CEO. “But they want to rely on their agencies to provide the latest information to make smart choices throughout their trip. That’s impossible unless you automate the process. Risk Messenger removes that hurdle by delivering the necessary risk information at the right time for the traveler.”
“Sitata delivers the latest health and security risk data around the world and has developed a special set of tools to guide travelers through the COVID crisis. Cornerstone’s expertise in data and process automation is an ideal fit to get this critical information in travelers’ hands when they need it most. It’s a perfect partnership,” said Adam St. John, CEO of Sitata.
Risk Messenger leverages Cornerstone’s Policy Compliance Manager ™ solution (PCM), a proven platform that has processed millions of transactions worldwide. PCM automates the costly, labor-intensive, and error-prone process of securing approval for business travel, tracking policy exceptions, and ensuring the highest compliance levels. The workflow automation provides an efficient, cost-effective solution to relieve the cost pressure as operations return to scale.
