Both TripIt and ExpenseWatch.com are open platform solutions, enabling customers to integrate their respective systems with the wide range of business Websites and applications they use.

TripIt helps customers organize trips that can be created from more than one-thousand different travel booking sites onto one itinerary. Customers send in confirmation emails to [email protected] and TripIt turns them into a master travel itinerary that’s easy to share and access.

ExpenseWatch.com users can quickly populate reports using the TripIt itineraries and credit card information that flows into the system. A running tab of booked versus expensed travel makes it easy for report filers, approvers and accounting reviewers to reconcile booked travel against actual expensed items or credit card transactions.

Managers quickly acquire visibility into company-wide travel and expense behavior and can report on spending patterns that are distributed over the many different booking solutions that TripIt aggregates onto its itineraries.

“Our integration with TripIt reinforces our ability to offer companies the most flexible and robust travel expense management solution available,” said Bill Vergantino, president and CEO of ExpenseWatch.com. “This will be especially engaging for our small and midsized business customers. They can book travel on whatever sites they prefer, consolidate their plans into one itinerary in TripIt, and then easily create and manage expense reports in ExpenseWatch.com.”

“We are pleased to have ExpenseWatch.com leverage our open itinerary platform to offer companies the ability to build the travel and expense management system that best meets their needs,” said Scott Hintz, Co-Founder and Vice President, Business Development at TripIt. “ExpenseWatch.com enables us to extend the value of using TripIt by enabling our business customers to more easily manage and control business travel expenses.”

The integration of TripIt itinerary data with ExpenseWatch.com is expected to be generally available early in the fourth quarter.
