TripIt for Business Now Makes Office Travel Easier for the Whole Company
Managers Get Real-Time Visibility into Travel Spend and Trends
San Francisco, CA—19 January 2011: TripIt, the leading mobile trip organizer from Concur (Nasdaq: CNQR), today launched a whole new TripIt for Business, bringing office travel into the 21st century for small businesses. Travelers, travel coordinators and colleagues have access to office travel plans in one place, and now TripIt for Business makes “the boss” happy, with the addition of real-time visibility into travel spend and trends.
The same award-winning TripIt technology that “automagically” creates itineraries and gives travelers access to all their plans in one place now makes office travel easier for the whole company with TripIt for Business:
- For travel coordinators, it’s as simple as forwarding confirmation emails from anywhere you book to firstname.lastname@example.org and accessing employees’ travel plans in one place.
- For travelers, TripIt makes it easy to access travel plans in one place on-the-go – on a smartphone or tablet, in a calendar, and online.
- For employees, a company travel calendar makes it easy to see when and where colleagues are traveling.
- For managers and business owners, real-time access to office travel spending provides insight into how much travel is on the books at any given moment.
Newly added visibility into office travel spending quickly answers questions about how much the company has spent to date on travel, what travel spend will be in the next 30 or 90 days, who travels the most frequently, and who the most efficient travelers in the company are.
“Since we first launched TripIt for Business, we’ve been delighted by the stories shared by travel coordinators saving hours each week by no longer having to copy and paste itineraries, or tediously update calendars,” said Scott Hintz, Co-founder and Vice President of Business Development for TripIt. “With the addition of real-time spending data, we’re helping managers answer questions about how much is being spent on travel at any given time, without having to resort to number-crunching.”
