What is TripIt?
The Hudson Group is pleased to introduce its newest strategic partner TripIt. Designed to offer an enhanced booking and travel experience with your company without adding any cost or overhead to your business, “TripIt is an online service that helps people organize all their travel plans – flights, hotels, rental cars, trains, cruises – no matter where they booked.” Using TripIt is simple, quick, automated and FREE!
Travelers use a multitude of online services to book various components of their travel itinerary. Nearly always, the booking process results in a confirmation being emailed to the traveler, encapsulating the travel arrangements. The traveler simply forwards that unedited emailed confirmation form to firstname.lastname@example.org. The first time you forward a confirmation, TripIt automatically builds an account for you. Repeat the process with other confirmations as they arrive for the trip that you are taking.
The Hudson group has integrated TripIt into its powerful suite of reservation and ticketing systems. At the conclusion of your booking experience on a Hudson system, you simply click an icon to forward to TripIt and your confirmation details will be automatically forwarded to your TripIt profile. Now what could be simpler?
