On Call International Integrates Innovative Information Sharing Platform

SALEM, N.H., Sept. 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- On Call International (On Call), a leading travel risk management company, today announced the integration of a new, text-based information sharing service that offers an easy, efficient and simple mechanism for delivering critical information to travelers. On Call is partnering with KeynectUp, a provider of "app-less" mobile information sharing, to ensure travelers have access to essential emergency contact details wherever and whenever they need them.

On Call's partnership with KeynectUp builds additional value for clients by ensuring travelers are empowered with the information they need to access immediate emergency assistance while abroad. By means of a simple text message, the traveler receives a link to download contact information for On Call's 24/7 Global Response Center and other customized client details. With one click, this contact information is properly formatted and stored right in the traveler's phone for easy and seamless access. KeynectUp has demonstrated proven success that this simple approach to information sharing significantly increases traveler awareness and adoption of emergency response resources by using a technology that is both familiar and preferred rather than the alternative of carrying a hard copy of a membership card. 

"As part of our mision of helping travelers in their time of need, every day, we're thrilled to offer this exciting innovation to our clients," said Thomas Davidson, President of On Call. "This technology will put On Call's clients in a stronger position to display their commitment to duty of care by giving their travelers a simple, straightforward method of storing and retrieving potentially life-saving information."

In a world that is getting tired of mobile apps, KeynectUp offers a refreshing approach to communicating with travelers to keep them safer. "On Call's focus on finding the most effective solutions to proactively reduce risk for travelers aligns neatly with our philosophy and the solution we have built," said Douglas Chrystall, Founder, KeynectUp. "People assume that apps are the perfect solution for communicating with students. However, we've found that Gen Z is selective about what they download to their smartphones. Many have chosen not to engage with mobile apps offered by their institutions; we've seen collegiate app deployment rates as low as 7%. Therefore, we find it is essential to embrace a simpler, more effective mechanism to improve student safety."
