TripIt for Teams: An Easier Way to Organize Multiple Travelers' Plans in One Place Two Years Since Launch, Teams of All Sizes are Kicking Paper Itineraries to the Curb and Giving Their Travelers Instant Access to Plans On-the-Go
SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- TripIt, the leading mobile travel organizer from Concur (Nasdaq: CNQR), is now joined by TripIt for Teams, the easiest way to keep all travelers in an organization, department or company, organized in one place.
First launched two years ago as TripIt for Business, the new name reflects the variety of organizations that have ditched the old way of manually creating itineraries for travelers or struggling to keep track of who's out of the office. Customers range from startups to teams within Fortune 100 companies, and cover a wide range of industries, including universities, law firms, music bands, sports teams and more.
TripIt for Teams gives travel planners an efficient way to organize travel arrangements for multiple travelers and reservations in one place. To get an itinerary instantly, the administrator simply forwards flight, hotel, car rentals and other travel confirmation emails with the travelers' email in the subject line to firstname.lastname@example.org. In one central dashboard, TripIt for Teams provides visibility into who's traveling, where they're staying, whether reservations are complete, and how much the trip will cost.
"Arranging travel for so many different people with multiple-city itineraries means a lot of crucial details; TripIt for Teams helps me manage every aspect of these trips in one place," says Amanda Sorbara, executive assistant for Born Footwear. "When my boss asks me where everyone is, I need to know; and I rely on TripIt for Teams to help me keep every last detail accurate."
In addition, the TripIt for Teams travel calendar makes it easy for the whole team to see when and where their colleagues are traveling. While on the road, travelers get all the benefits of TripIt, which makes it easy to access confirmation numbers, maps, directions and other trip details right from their smartphones.
"We typically have shows running simultaneously, so it's often a case of, 'Ben's in Utah, Danny's in Amsterdam,'" says Danae Whetstone, an office manager at DWP Live, which produces entertainment shows during globally televised sporting events and other large-scale productions. "Before TripIt for Teams, our travelers never knew each others' whereabouts. Now, TripIt is one of the first things they check."
