AETOS, Collinson and Crisis24, a GardaWorld company, have signed a strategic partnership agreement to provide ‘AETOS Assist’, an end-to-end integrated security and travel risk management service to businesses. Operating out of a 5G-enabled data-driven Command Centre, AETOS Assist will strengthen Crisis24 and Collinson’s presence in the Asia-Pacific region; enabling organisations to fulfil their duty of care and protect employees in the region and around the world.
Under the agreement, all three companies will harness their combined expertise to provide corporate clients with a complete global risk mitigation service and support, enabling them to effectively assess, mitigate and manage risks amidst the continually evolving threat environment.
From pre-travel risk assessment, real-time security intelligence and people tracking through to crisis management, emergency evacuations and global medical assistance, AETOS Assist will provide specialised support and 24/7/365 peace of mind for business travellers and expatriates. Their medical solution will also include seamless and secure COVID-related travel tests and assistance, to help organisations manage the current pandemic and safeguard workforce health.
“We are excited to join forces with Collinson and Crisis24, both leading experts in the integrated risk management, global traveller, and medical assistance spaces.
