Tripware, a travel service for self-serve business travelers, has launched the Beta Version of its patent pending travel management software. The software, Tripware OutBook, is a plugin for Microsoft Outlook 2007. OutBook enables business travelers to handle all their business travel needs directly in Microsoft Outlook.
Tripware developed OutBook specifically for people who book, plan, and manage their own business travel. A few other companies have made attempts at full Microsoft Outlook integration; Tripware is the first one to release a functioning Beta Version. Tripware also offers a desktop application for non-Outlook 2007 users.
Tripware OutBook can be downloaded by visiting www.tripware.com. After downloading the OutBook plugin, a business traveler simply enters a meeting into their business calendar, types the city, address, or airport code of their meeting location, then clicks the Tripware Book Trip icon that is already embedded in the appointment window.
Tripware OutBook fetches the user's travel preferences and opens up a booking window inside of Microsoft Outlook. Currently, Tripware allows travelers to customize over 50 preferences, including airlines, hotels, car rental companies, scheduling, and more. For example, if a traveler never wants to fly on Airline XYZ, he would 'blacklist' that airline and it would never show up in the traveler's booking process.
Tripware's products offer more than just booking. The products also offer loyalty program tie-ins, expense report management, and complete itinerary access without ever opening an email or a website.
For those business travelers that want a new and unique way to book and manage their business trips, Tripware OutBook's full integration with Microsoft Outlook 2007 just may deliver on the products tagline: 'Have a Great Trip'.
