Who’s In and Who’s Out: TripIt Launches Company Calendar

New Calendar View Makes it Easy to See When and Where Colleagues are Traveling in One Place

San Francisco, CA—30 August 2011: TripIt, the leading mobile trip organizer from Concur (Nasdaq: CNQR), today announced the launch of a new company travel calendar that makes it easy for everyone in the office to see who’s traveling when and where - all in one place. So everything from coordinating travel schedules, to simply planning office meetings, is more efficient and frustration-free.

The month-at-a-glance view helps both traveling and “in the office” employees.  Colleagues can discover if they’re traveling to the same place around the same time, so they can coordinate transportation, client meetings, or activities. Those in the office can now easily see where colleagues are and when they’ll be back in the office. Dates and locations are visible on the calendar, but sensitive itinerary details remain private.

Access to the company calendar is now available at www.tripit.com on the “Business” tab for:

  • Any member of TripIt Groups, the free service for companies that makes it easy to view and share travel plans with colleagues.  More than 25,000 companies use TripIt Groups, ranging from those in the Fortune 500 to small businesses.
  • Any employee whose company is a TripIt for Business customer, the simple solution for companies who want to take the pain out of traveling, planning, and organizing office travel. TripIt for Business customers get premium features including:  a quick view of who’s in/out today; historical and future month access; company sub-groups; and the ability to invite partners or participants outside the company to join the group. TripIt for Business pricing starts at $29/month.

“A company travel calendar is one of the most requested features we’ve received from our business users,” said Scott Hintz, co-founder and VP of Business Development for TripIt. “With this launch, we’re bringing the familiar and super-useful in/out board into the 21st century.  Now employees have one place where they can quickly view colleagues’ travel schedules, eliminating the need to cut and paste travel plans elsewhere.”
