A Dublin-based travel technology firm has secured a further funding round to support the development of its platform to help global corporates support business travel compliance.
Tracker Software Technologies/GT Global Tracker supplies software to some of the largest global tax and relocation management companies to ensure their clients’ business travel meets strict national taxation, immigration and duty of care obligations.
Right now, the technology is helping companies manage the maze of global immigration, taxation and COVID-19 restrictions as they seek to return to business travel.
To date, the company has raised more than $2 million in funding. This latest funding round came from founding members Diana Busk and first round investors ECA International.
“To complete this funding in the face of an almost total global stop of business travel is a testament to how our technology will enable global corporates get back travelling in a safe and compliant manner,” said Liam Brennan, CEO and Founder of Tracker Software.
He added: “As well as the normal tax and immigration issues that all companies face, we supply trip assessment tools that allow companies to work out how and who they can send to a destination to support their clients.
“While the impression is that all travel has stopped many of our customers supply critical services and infrastructure and are still travelling. Our technology advises on what nationality can enter a jurisdiction, what potential quarantine or home isolation edicts may be in force and how the recent travel pattern of a traveller could impact admittance.”
