Great question! At OffWeGo, we understand that although necessary, none of the key travel data needed to ensure the safety of the student and Duty of Care of the institution exists unless the student provides such information willingly, swiftly, and accurately. As such, at OffWeGo we pride ourselves in capturing and engaging the traveler through every part of their travel journey through social connection, comparison of resources, and proven gamification techniques.
Whereas our competitors focus on the travel manager, OffWeGo focuses on the individual traveler in the goal in of engaging more types of people and inevitably providing higher quality information to their travel managers. We prioritize the individual's wants and needs, knowing that if they're engaged throughout all parts of their travel journey they will be more likely to report critical safety information.
OffWeGo draws from the Octalysis framework, coined by Yu-Kai Chou to design it's feedback and engagement loops. We draw from certain proven beviroal science concepts to teach the traveler safer travel habits. We think of Gamification less of "points, badges, and leaderboards" and more of "what are the underlying motivations behind those traveler's actions."
One of the biggest issues in sponsored travel is making sure the duty of care to the traveler is effective. Even more challenging, ensuring the duty of loyalty of the traveler. Duty of Loyalty infers that students should refrain from behaving in a manner that would be contrary to their employer’s best interests on a school-related trip. In short, duty of loyalty is the responsibility a student has to his or her organization to actively participate in trip planning, follow the emergency procedures outlined in the institutions’ policies and to use general common sense in avoiding unnecessary risks when traveling on behalf of their employers.
