TripIt fine-tuned its TripIt for Business offering to provide more visibility into travel spend for travel arrangers in small businesses.
Among the new wrinkles is a Leaderboard, which gives a controller or department head additional information about spending and trip expenses, as well as the most efficient and spend-happy travelers.
Travel coordinators can track travel spend to date; travel spend in the books over the next month, two months and three months; and the company's most frequent and efficient travelers, TripIt states.
The previous incarnation of TripIt for Business provided some visibility into travel spend, "but it required manual calculations," says Thomas Marks, director of product marketing.
Launched in December 2010, TripIt for Business targets companies with 25 to 500 employees with lightly managed business travel programs.
Among other features of TripIt for Business, travel coordinators can track a company's travel spend to date; the amount of travel on the books over the next 90 days; and most frequent and efficient travelers.
The new features don’t require a fee, but come as part of the premium TripIt for Business service, a spokesman says. All other non-premium TripIt for Business users get the rest of the Leaderboard functionality, which is free.
