Travel Is A Pain. However Technology Can Make It A Lot Easier.

Tripit LogoOver the course of 12 months I travel about 12 or more times a year. This a lot LESS than some of you might travel and a lot more than some of you.

One thing I’ve found is that although I have to stand in long security lines, remove my belt, show my dingy looking socks to the public and endure cramped seats in an airplane, my tech bag makes travel easier. With my smartphone I can check in (no paper necessary) and with my MiFi (portable hotspot) I’m online when others are trying to find a free WiFi hotspot.

There’s more.

Tripit’s a popular service which enables travelers to forward their itinerary to an email address and have the flight information easily organized for you. It also keeps all your travel details handy, helps manage your travel points and more.

Tripit for business recently launched and brings all the power of Tripit for individual users to businesses. So this means a travel assistant or office manager can arrange the travel for his colleagues or attendees of a meeting – and not have to copy and paste travel information. Instead, they can use Tripit to manage the trip and travel information much more productively.

Another travel tool include’s Concur Breeze (which owns Tripit) which helps you manage those annoying receipts you collect as you travel.
