TripIt Makes it Easy to Share Trips in Salesforce Chatter

Now Companies Can Keep Colleagues and Partners in the Know About Travel Plans through Salesforce Chatter

Hong Kong—23 November 2011TripIt, the leading mobile trip organizer from Concur (Nasdaq: CNQR), today announced that trips can now be shared socially by leveraging Chatter Connect to keep colleagues, partners and contacts informed of upcoming travel plans in Salesforce Chatter, the enterprise social network.

Colleagues can discover if they’re traveling to the same place around the same time, so they can coordinate transportation, client meetings, or activities – all within Chatter. Dates and locations are visible, but sensitive itinerary details remain private.

With the addition of Chatter, TripIt now makes it as easy to share trips socially with business colleagues, as it is to share them with friends on Facebook and LinkedIn. In fact, TripIt was one the flagship partners for LinkedIn Apps, and it’s one of the most popular ways to share trips.

Travelers can also share trips with the click of a button on TripIt’s iPhone, Android, BlackBerry and Windows Phone apps, as well as online. For TripIt Pro users, personal contacts added to their “Inner Circle” will automatically be notified of trip plans, unless trips are set to private. Sharing is entirely optional, and can be customized by social network, trip, and connection.
