SafePoint helps protect travelers with visibility across their entire journey. Southlake-based Saber says it’s a smarter, faster and more accurate way to account for the safety and location of employees on the go. Travelers can stay informed and easily get help if they need it. And now, SafePoint offers even more: global travel restriction tracking for COVID-19 issues and other events.
Saber expanded the travel risk management product amid the global release of the Omicron variant. The objective: to provide information on the spread of COVID 19 and new variants as well as country-imposed entry restrictions, including masks, vaccinations, health documentation and quarantine requirements.
