On April 4, iJET Travel Intelligence will forever change the way people receive travel information with the launch the industry's first global intelligence service, WorldcuePRO; debut customers include the global reservation system Worldspan and Prudential Securities.

"WorldcuePRO gives the travel community a range and depth of professionally analyzed information never before available from a single, trusted source," said iJET Chairman and CEO John Power.

WorldcuePRO is the first in a family of services that transforms mountains of travel information from thousands of sources into analyzed, trusted knowledge that is easy to access and use. "WorldcuePRO is truly an industry first," said Jesse Liebman, Worldspan senior vice president and general manager of Worldwide Travel Supplier Services. "Innovations like this are right in line with Worldspan's commitment to add value for users of our network and the WorldspanGO! platform."

WorldcuePRO provides up-to-the-minute intelligence, including travel alerts, to help people avoid and manage the hassles inherent to travel. This service is backed by an Intelligence Operations Center in Annapolis, MD that monitors the globe 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with experts from the intelligence, travel and media fields who collect, analyze and verify information from more than 3,000 sources.

WorldcuePRO gives travel advisors, including travel agents, corporate travel managers, security directors, travel health specialists and concierge desks access to iJET's proprietary database covering 150 countries across 10 key travel categories - from health, security and transportation to entry/exit rules and communications. "iJET focuses on the practical, constantly changing travel information that travelers really need to know," says Prudential Securities Senior Vice President and Director of Corporate Security, Henry DeGeneste. "Our employees travel abroad frequently - often on a few hours' notice - and WorldcuePRO helps us ensure their safety and productivity on the road."

The user-friendly, searchable service delivers timely, accurate, intelligence in a brief, need-to-know format that is continuously reviewed and updated to reflect changing world conditions. WorldcuePRO saves travel professionals hours of research and gives them a single source for trusted intelligence, organized by destination - everything needed to help travelers plan for and complete hassle-free trips. When working with a client, a travel advisor can view an "At a Glance" screen for a destination and have immediate access to current travel alerts, top intelligence items on issues such as visas and immunizations, and even the current local time, currency conversion rate and 5-day weather forecast. Early users of the system report that WorldcuePRO makes them "the smartest travel agent in the world."

In addition to accessing iJET's global knowledgebase, WorldcuePRO gives travel professionals SmartMail, an e-mail interface crafted for communication with travelers. A travel professional can easily attach travel advice sheets on over 100 topics when sending itinerary or other information to a client. For example, clients headed to Mexico City can receive - with a click of the travel agent's mouse - advice on high altitude travel, avoiding dangerous taxis, and food and water safety. These advice sheets can be co-branded with a travel agency or corporate logo.

WorldcuePRO is launching on Worldspan to over 20,000 travel agencies, which support millions of travelers, and to Prudential Securities and its 14,000 employees worldwide. iJET intends to provide this service on the other major reservation systems including Sabre, Amadeus and Galileo, and directly to travel professionals.
