Case Studies

GTA - City of London

GTA is a world-class provider of hotel accommodation, ground travel products, and related services to the travel trade, connecting Travel Suppliers with Travel Sellers around the globe.

Gullivers Travel Associates (GTA) began in 1975 as a small but dynamic tour operator bringing groups from long-haul markets such as Asia into Europe. Over 30 years later, they are one of the most successful wholesalers of hotels, ground travel products and group tours in the world.

GTA has achieved steady global growth during this time. Sales and service offices have been opened in strategic worldwide locations as trade expanded in those countries. These offices have enabled GTA to optimise the full inbound and outbound potential of each market and ensure perfect placement to recognise and develop new and emerging markets.

GTA currently employs several hundred staff at their offices in the City of London. Due to the physical location of the site and the various Emergency Exit routes this has divided those evacuating away from the building. As a consequence this has caused a significant delay in the reporting of a full head count following an evacuation.

The organisation’s Facilities Manager has now incorporated the TAGEVAC system into their Emergency Plan by zoning each floor separately. This has ensured that the appointed Fire Wardens are now able to confirm their area is evacuated and report this directly to the Fire Manager. This simple action has significantly reduced the time delay between evacuation and reporting the building is clear.
