Business users who travel frequently may be looking for a way to book their business trips without having to call a travel agent or go online. A new plug-in for Outlook 2007 offers the ability to find and book trips directly from Outlook 2007.
The Tripware plug-in allows the user to setup a portfolio for travel that holds the users preferences for flight, hotel, car, and scheduling. Once entered the plug-in automatically finds trips to desired locations and books them using those preferences.
The software will also store credit card details so paying is automatic as well. Once booked the software automatically puts the trip into the persons Outlook itinerary. Prices for trips booked with Tripware promise to be comparable to the price of the trip booked using Travelocity and Expedia.
