Internet Travel Solutions upgrades TripApproval product
DALLAS - Internet Travel Solutions (ITS), a premier travel technology company, announces the upgrade of TripApproval, its leading industry pre-trip approval product. TripApproval is a software product that allows users to easily approve or deny trips with a single click.
ITS has updated TripApproval to include trip audits in the pre-booking approval email. ITS' TripAudit product searches for air, hotel and rental car prices within policy, at the point-of-sale. Travel managers can now add alternate in-policy trip audits to the itinerary in order to view lower-priced declined options. The approver can then accept the traveler's selected trip or authorize a less expensive trip option from TripApproval. In the event the approver chooses the lower-priced option, the trip is automatically rebooked, and an updated itinerary is sent to the traveler. This product upgrade saves companies up to 17% by preventing policy violations and frivolous spending.
TripApproval's additional new features include the ability to add per diem for meals and taxis / ride shares to calculate the total trip cost. The software allows approvers to quick-approve or quick-deny trip options with reasons for trip justification or policy violation, and is available in mobile and desktop views with an easy-to-use interface. TripApproval now empowers more savings by showing all policy-compliant trip options in the authorization process before travel is purchased.
"TripApproval helped me cut unnecessary travel spend by showing me all my trip options in one place and approving only policy-compliant trips. I can make sure my team is taken care of, but exorbitant spending is now a thing of the past," saidClint P., Travel Manager.
