WorldMate 4.0 was released today and has introduced TripCatch, an opt-in service that monitors a user’s BlackBerry mailbox for travel confirmation emails and imports the travel itinerary automatically to their WorldMate account. With TripCatch automation, confirmation emails for flights, hotels, rental cars and more generate detailed trip itineraries.
As I’ve said previously WorldMate is a travel application on steroids. It’s somewhat geared towards the road warrior, but, you travel more than once or twice per month, the application is a godsend. One of the great features of WorldMate is the ability to forward your travel confirmation emails to WorldMate and have them automatically converted into itineraries. With WorldMate 4.0 and TripCatch these travel confirmations can automatically be scanned and imported from your BlackBerry devices inbox making the entire process of creating a travel itinerary completely automatic.
WorldMate Eliminates the Need for Manual Itinerary Creation
WorldMate’s Pioneering TripCatch Service Automatically Turns Confirmation Emails into Detailed Itineraries
WorldMate Inc., the industry leader in mobile travel services with over 5 million active customers worldwide, announced today a major service upgrade with the introduction of TripCatch. WorldMate with TripCatch for Blackberry now automatically recognizes travel confirmation emails and sends the information directly to a user’s WorldMate account, freeing users from having to manually enter travel information in their calendars.
How it works:
TripCatch (an opt-in service), monitors a user’s BlackBerry mailbox for travel confirmation emails and imports the travel itinerary automatically to their WorldMate account. With TripCatch automation, confirmation emails for flights, hotels, rental cars and more generate detailed trip itineraries. The WorldMate service also includes flight alerts, calendar synchronization, and itinerary integration with mapping, navigation and LinkedIn contacts.
To ensure the absolute privacy of WorldMate travelers, the TripCatch implementation is certified with the Privacy Seal from TRUSTe , the leading internet privacy services provider. Only information explicitly allowed by the user is ever accessed by WorldMate, and users can opt-out at any time.
“We know that business travelers deal with all kinds of challenges and annoyances, have little free time to waste, so we built TripCatch to cater to their busy lifestyles. Automating the creation of mobile-accessible itineraries allows WorldMate users to more fluidly incorporate mobile business travel services, with no extra work to their already hectic schedules,” said Jean Tripier, CEO of WorldMate. “WorldMate makes life easier for business travelers, and TripCatch takes our service to a whole new level.”
