What You're Missing This Week on The TripActions Community
Our community is the backbone of our business. With the communication and camaraderie of corporate travel managers as well as finance, HR, and risk leaders, the TripActions team has been able to innovate and build the products that our users needed most.
And the feedback we’ve received suggests we’re on the right path: TripActions was ranked the leading software solution for corporate travel management, expense management, and travel & expense management by users on G2.com — noting TripActions as a leader for the sophistication of its technology and ease of use, as well as its market presence around the world.
Although the recognition is appreciated, it doesn’t stop us from moving forward each day. Just last week TripActions announced a partnership with Europe’s leading independent rail and coach travel platform Trainline and introduced a new level of self-serve tools to the market to support our customers as they begin traveling again.
Plus, new tools tools like the free-to-the-public TripActions Business Travel Recovery Tool and the COVID-19 Report in the TripActions Admin Dashboard help our users to assess the safety of travel, understand any government regulations associated with travel, and review other pertinent real-time data to help guide your business and travel policy decisions.
We want to keep the conversation going as we’ve all learned this is a global situation that will continue to evolve and take shape each week. After a brief break for the Fourth of July holiday weekend in the United States, join us in the TripActions Office Hours and Workshops, on the TripActions Community, and with our Open for Business podcast where we can best hear your needs and find the way to answer them as corporate travel managers, finance leaders, HR professionals, and risk executives walk the path towards recovery.
There are the top conversations that we’re having as a community this week as we travel the road to open borders and business lunches again:
TripActions VP of Partner Services and Solutions Danny Finkel is hosting a webinar on July 9th at 10:00 AM PDT/1:00 PM ET in which he discusses how business travel providers are stepping up during this unprecedented time. Joining Danny will be leaders from Marriott, Enterprise Holdings, and United Airlines, and the Community discussion board is filled with news on what other suppliers are doing to take care of their customers.
According to TSA data, more than 600,000 passengers were screened at checkpoints on June 22, which is a major sign of recovery. Although there’s still a long way to go before we're back to normal pre-COVID levels, passenger traffic is headed in the right direction. Have you flown recently? What changes have you noticed to the security process?
While nearly half of all polled GBTA member companies plan to resume domestic travel within the next three months, those plans rely on an optimistic trajectory. The good news is that suppliers including airlines and hotels have now established sound sanitary practices that will make business travel safe for those that need to start traveling for business sooner than later. Join the conversation and let us know when your company plans to start traveling again.
Experts predict that as live meetings and events return, there will continue to be a mix of virtual and hybrid events to complement the meeting experience. Our in-house events team shares how much creativity comes from hybrid events, and we’re curious to hear about the best use cases that you’ve seen so far.
