If you’re caught up in a major incident, the first thing you want to do, once you get to safety, is let your family and friends know you’re all right.
In 2004, our founder John Scott was travelling in Sri Lanka when the tsunami hit. He stayed on another week to assist in the aid effort, collecting donations from friends and
family and using the funds to buy basic supplies for people who needed them.
John thought then about the process of notifying loved ones after a major incident. He considered that if just a little data packet could get through, you could
potentially notify everyone at once that you’re all right. This idea became ShoutSafe, which was the precursor to the Travel Tracking service of our sister
company, Voyage Manager.
Since its release in 2010, Voyage Manager has become the leading travel tracking technology for large organisations. For Mia Bazo, we have recreated seven
of the Voyage Manager services on a self-service platform, and made it affordable for individuals and SMEs.
