Lot’s of us travel, we track our mileage points, we know the best airlines and best airports. But one thing we and the office managers we work with might not have a good grasp is, is how much the travel is costing us. TripIt, who makes a travel service enabling you to easily manage your travel plans, expanded it’s TripIt for business service and now helps individuals or business mangers track travel spending.
TripIt’s press release reads:
Newly added visibility into office travel spending quickly answers questions about how much the company has spent to date on travel, what travel spend will be in the next 30 or 90 days, who travels the most frequently, and who the most efficient travelers in the company are.
Why is this information important?
Maybe there’s an executive who is travelling quite a bit but you realize the resulting sales are lack luster. Maybe another person is travelling a lot but not maximizing their travel the most effectively. Travel tools like this can help individuals and office managers better observer travel expenditures and adjust accordingly.
