IMG designed and developed IMG GlobalSecur from the ground up based on our clients’ perception that existing services were inflexible and did not reflect their exact needs. They were overly expensive with various additional charges. More importantly, although these services provided location data and threat information, clients were on their own in terms of aligning the two and then managing an issue or incident.
Your use of IMG GlobalSecur means that we will know the whereabouts of your employees and the prevailing threats, and we will take the appropriate action – notifications, etc., – on your behalf in accordance with previously-agreed procedures. We will be available at any time to provide security advice, or to respond to any issue, event or emergency. Furthermore, there are no additional costs such as itinerary-related (PNR) charges for any number of your travelers or trips.
IMG has become a focal point and partner for our clients. They see value in our security advice, our ready availability, and for coordinating and managing challenges such as country evacuations or the employee- related crises that can occur anywhere. In practice, many of our clients prefer that we manage IMG GlobalSecur for them, since they are unable to provide a high degree of focus to this challenging area. As an IMG GlobalSecur user, your organization will have access to our own long-term and trusted resources and those of our business partners for overseas support, up to and including security and/or medical evacuation. We can capture travel data automatically from any travel agent or provider, but we can also obtain data from other agents in any format. And IMG GlobalSecur can work with any responder or insurer and we can adapt IMG GlobalSecur to best suit your operational needs.
Our program emphasizes our primary market differentiators of a commitment to travel safety on your behalf, our ready availability, a cost-effective approach with no PNR or hidden charges, and the availability of optional components. These IMG GlobalSecur market differentiators will benefit your own organization.

These reports include an in-depth description and assessment of the destination’s political, security and medical environment and its assessed impact on travelers and business operations.
