TripIt for Teams Goes Mobile, Giving Travel Planners Access Anytime, Anywhere
Teams of All Sizes Can Now See Who’s Traveling When and Where on the TripIt App for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch
SAN FRANCISCO, June 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — TripIt, the leading mobile travel organizer from Concur (Nasdaq: CNQR), now features TripIt for Teams–the easiest way to keep all travelers in an organization, department or company organized in one place–on its app for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
So whether it’s a team of two or 200, individuals who plan travel for others can easily access everyone’s travel schedules at their fingertips. By clicking on “My Travelers” in the TripIt app for iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, planners can view trip dates and destinations at-a-glance–in a list, map or team calendar–as well as detailed itineraries for each traveler they manage. In addition, both travel planners and travelers can easily subscribe to the teams’ travel calendar to sync trip plans on their devices.
“Make-A-Wish program staff are responsible for 30-60 wishes at any given time, most of which involve travel,” said Patricia Wilson, executive director for Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area. “We used to carry around folders full of printed itineraries to keep track of all our travelers. With TripIt for Teams’ mobile features, now everything is organized conveniently in one place, so we can react quickly if plans change, day or night.”
TripIt for Teams includes all the benefits of TripIt, giving travelers access to their trip itineraries anytime, from any device–even when they’re offline. Because everyone on the team has instant access to the team calendar, they can sync up with colleagues on the road or in the office.
“With TripIt for Teams, we’re focused on making travel easier for the whole team,” says Edith Harbaugh, director of product management for TripIt. “Travel planners are now using their smartphones to access the same information in TripIt that travelers do–like confirmation numbers, addresses and phone numbers–especially away from the office. So when a call comes in after hours from one of their travelers asking for help, TripIt for Teams is literally within reach.”
