As head of our sales and marketing efforts at TripCase, I’m also a frequent business traveler. I travel the world with a simple mission and single objective: To help people remember where they’ve been and share where they’re going with TripCase. I’ve been doing this for over two years and am convinced I have one of the best jobs in the world. I’m writing today to share the launch of a new feature we’ve been working on that we think you’ll love. (Link to more recent post on how it works).
To start, I’m proud to say at TripCase we have a crew of brilliant technology enthusiasts building one place for all your trips. It’s not simple, but we’re committed to monthly product enhancements, a beautiful design, and an intuitive experience. We work hard to constantly improve the product and listen to you, our travelers, as we prepare our product enhancements we deliver each month.
Like so many technology companies, we test things in our usability labs and then see if they work in the real world. Do you remember when you couldn’t find your Airline Reservation Number when you opened the TripCase app or when all of your Active and Past Trips were on one tab? Our product enhancements continue to make the experience more intuitive based on your feedback. Changes are iterative and evolutionary on purpose, to ensure they work…whether you’re at the office or running through an airport.
One of the areas we’ve heard still needs improving is in sharing your trip info with others. Imagine your friends sharing their perfect New York Get-Away, a tour of New Zealand, or first-time trip to Barcelona. Imagine your colleagues sharing the details of their business trip so you can find time for a meeting and know when they need to leave for the airport. Imagine your wife or husband being able to always know where you are and how to quickly find you? Imagine a travel arranger being able to keep tabs on dozens of travelers with a quick glance. And imagine it all without digging through email, texts, and Web sites.
While today you have the option to separately email trips and flight reminders, we’ve often heard how you’d like an easier way to share trips with the people you care about. We know you’ve also wanted a way to see other people’s trips without having to dig through your email, text messages, or Web sites to discover their trip items or details.
That’s why I’m posting on our blog… to announce something we’ve been thinking about and working on for over a year at TripCase. (Learn how it works). Today, you now have the ability to follow others and the trips they take all within TripCase. It’s great functionality that will serve travelers, travel arrangers, colleagues, friends, family and more. You’ll find it working live on the web from your phone, and in your updated app in the coming days.
Oh, and did I mention it’s still free? All the trips I care about in one place accessible from the Web or my app…whether I’m taking them or not. For me, it’s going to change the way I travel and use TripCase. I hope it does the same for you as well.
Thanks for using TripCase and please, tell us what you think.
