SOUTHLAKE, Texas, Aug. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Sabre, a global travel technology company, is launching TripCase Corporate, the travel industry's first set of integrated corporate features on mobile, designed to improve travel programs for corporations, while also simplifying business travel for employees.
Using TripCase Corporate, travelers can make reservations outside their corporate travel program, and designate when a trip or part of a trip, such as a fight or hotel booking, is for business. This information is then captured and shared with the corporation through an easy-to-read dashboard. This makes it far easier for travelers to manage their itinerary, make new bookings in and out of corporate travel policy, share their business travel plans with their company, and receive relevant in-app messages when traveling – all using one mobile app.
For corporate travel managers, TripCase Corporate will provide a better view of total travel spend, by capturing and analyzing travel data booked outside corporate travel programs. In addition to the data collection and analytics, corporations can send employees customized messages, which help with security, duty of care issues and policy compliance.
"The consumerization of business travel continues to put pressure on corporations to meet employees' expectations for simple tools to help them shop, book and manage their business trips," said John Samuel, senior vice president of Sabre Traveler Solutions. "TripCase Corporate closes the gap between the company's need for efficiency and control, and the traveler's desire for flexibility and choice."
TripCase Corporate will be available through Sabre's online booking tool, GetThere, and its resellers, and is one of the first elements of TruTrip, Sabre's newly announced solution that captures travel data across multiple booking sources.
"TripCase continues to deliver enhancements that make business travel easier for Sapient employees," says Michelle De Costa, sr. manager, global travel and client experience for Sapient. "With the additional corporate capabilities coming soon, TripCase becomes even more valuable to me as a Travel Manager. It's really the complete mobile itinerary management package."
Sabre has also created a set of development tools that will allow corporations to send information from multiple reservation sources and other types of trip information such as meetings, ground transportation and restaurant reservations into TripCase through a set of APIs. These same tools will allow corporations to extract information from the TripCase itinerary for custom reporting capabilities.
In addition, TripCase Corporate will allow corporations to:
Built on TripCase, the award winning mobile travel management application, TripCase Corporate will be shown next week at the Sabre booth #1527 during the GBTA Conference in San Diego.
