Today, I’m pleased to announce that Concur and TripIt are combining to bring you an even better travel and expense management experience.
Mobile has changed the way business travelers book, share, manage, and expense their travel plans and there is a universal need to bring order to the chaos. This is true for both managed and unmanaged travel, booked by an individual. Together, TripIt and Concur will help travelers have the best possible experience throughout their entire business trip – from planning, booking, and traveling, to managing the itinerary – to helping travelers deal with changes that happen during business travel – all the way through to the expense report.
Here at Concur, we’re thrilled with this collaboration because of the value it delivers to the millions of people who use our services. TripIt’s capabilities to enable travelers to organize and share travel plans no matter where or how they book are a perfect complement to Concur’s Web-based and mobile integrated travel and expense management solutions. The enhanced offering, coupled with Concur’s global reach and industry leadership, will provide a great end-to-end business travel experience.
This collaboration also creates exciting opportunities for third-party developers. Jointly, Concur and TripIt will offer an open platform that integrates mobile and Web services, content, and technology from third-party developers, suppliers, travel management companies and customers.
Concur intends to fully support and continue TripIt’s offerings as we accelerate innovation in this product category and expand the company’s reach among more travelers and companies globally. And TripIt customers will continue to enjoy the same level of service that they’ve come to expect. We look forward to providing you with more details as they become available. For more information, please see our press release and FAQs.
We’re excited about the opportunities this presents for both companies and extend a warm welcome to everyone from TripIt. We’re delighted to have you on board!
