PLANO, TEXAS (Nov. 3, 2017) – Altair Global has partnered with a leading destination services company, Going-there, to provide a new tool and service that tracks business travelers. Developed by Going-there and customized by Altair Global, ORBITSM establishes a method for tracking globally-mobile employees to ensure clients have visibility into impending immigration breaches, employee location and activity data to support corporate and income tax compliance and real-time employee location during an emergency situation.
Susan Myers, vice president, global financial services, stated, “The estimated number of annual business trips in the U.S. is approximately 488 million and when you couple that with hundreds of millions of international travelers, the result equals a staggeringly high-risk situation for multinational organizations.
