Cornerstone Information Systems, which provides reservation management services to travel management companies, integrated TripIt and its itinerary management services as a "turnkey" solution for Cornerstone clients.
Two Cornerstone clients, TravelStore and World Travel Service, already are providing their clients with TripIt services through the Cornerstone integration, Cornerstone says.
"Clients using Cornerstone's ICQX reservation management and fulfillment platform can now 'flip a switch' to have their travel booking data flow seamlessly into the TripIt platform, including automatic synchronization of itinerary changes," Cornerstone states.
Cornerstone says its TripIt integration is "unique" because it provides TripIt with access to all of the agency's booking data, regardless if reservations are made at the travel agency or online. The data also flows regardless of the agency's GDS affiliation or booking-tool choice, Cornerstone says.
Cornerstone it accomplished the tie-in with TripIt by integrating Cornerstone's Web Services with TripIt's API.
Wido Schaefer, the CEO of TravelStore, states that hooking up with TripIt through Cornerstone required minimal development work and adds value for its clients.
