To Build or Not to Build - That is the Travel Registry Question

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

An increasingly changing landscape of risk management in education abroad and university international travel warrants more strategic and systematic approaches for institutions of higher education to actively plan, customize and implement travel management/tracking systems. Implement and customize international travel management/tracking systems to capture your global imprint: minimize risk, reduce institutional liability and maximize duty of care.

Session presenters from Penn State and Brigham Young University will combine efforts and share product results on how their institutions (one public and one private) have customized and developed personalized comprehensive travel management/tracking systems to meet their institutions’ global needs. Penn State will focus on how to customize a commercial product to meet institutional needs. Brigham Young University will share what it has learned from developing its own in-house travel management/tracking system over a course of three years in the making. Both institutions will discuss lessons learned and dynamically involve session participants in interactive discussions on key issues. As a result of attending this session, attendees will take away a personal framework of how to start and finish implementing and customizing a travel tracking system to meet their global needs.

As a result of participating in this session, attendees will:
 Learn how implement and customize their own travel management/tracking systems – to have more than just registry.
 They will also take away from this session how to plan a travel management/tracking system to better maximize duty of care through travel planning, calendaring and tracking university groups and individual travelers.
 Learn how to better respond to emergencies abroad and increase better communication protocols.
 Learn how to support university international travel policies; provide timely emergency assistance and crisis management to all travelers, faculty and students; and how to warn and inform all travelers through various communication mediums.
 Lastly they will learn how to serve as an insurance portal, help ensure export control compliance and how to define an institution’s international footprint through data and reports.
