It’s been a busy month since announcing that TripIt would be joining forces with Concur, and we’ve been moving fast to take the best of both products and deliver even better services to companies and their travelers everywhere.
The big news I’m honored to share with you today is that TripIt will be the single go-forward mobile app offered to all Concur clients and their employees.
This means all 10,000 current Concur client companies and 15+ million people who work at those companies will be using TripIt as their mobile travel AND expense app. We are targeting the integration of Concur’s mobile app functionality into TripIt by the end of the year for these customers. So, if you work at a company that uses Concur’s travel and expense solution (such as American Express, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Pfizer and more), you’ll be getting the added benefit of being able to easily manage your travel and expenses with TripIt.
For everyone else, all the goodness of TripIt you’ve enjoyed to date will remain the same–except for the usual improvements we are looking to ship on our current roadmap.
Lightweight and simple to use expense management has always been on our TripIt roadmap, but was non-trivial to deliver. This example is one of many benefits clients and their employees will enjoy as a result of TripIt joining the Concur family.
Stay tuned for more exciting integration-related announcements we’ll be making soon. We’re not wasting any time executing on ideas for customers and users of TripIt and Concur to benefit from our recent combination.
In the meantime, we’re in Las Vegas where this strategy is being announced at Concur’s premier client conference, Fusion, taking place Feb.15-18.
