You know what’s the most hateful thing about going on a business trip? Yes, you’re away from your family and friends for weeks but there’s something even more important. Any more guesses? Okay, let me tell you. When you’re on a business trip, all your expenses are to be reimbursed by your company. Though this allows you to stay at a luxury hotel and eat at your favourite restaurants, one thing that irritates most of the people is that you have to keep all the bills (or their photos) with you and present them at the end of your trip when you return back to your office. For all that time, you have to take care of all those “papers” more carefully than your baby child. Even if one document is missing, you’re going to lose that money. And what if it was the costliest of all?
To cater to all such problems, now there’s an iOS app for you. It’s called Trippeo that has been developed by Trippeo Technologies. The app is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad and requires iOS 8.0 or any later version of the OS. This app has also been optimized for iPhone 5, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
Trippeo puts a very simple solution to all your problems. It automates many of the chores that you do manually now. For example, when you hire a taxi, Trippeo knows that it goes to your transportation bill and automatically allocates it a separate block. Then, if you’re eating at a local food destination that’s listed on Google Maps, just pick that location and the app will automatically figure out the price you’d pay for a certain food item. These small helping hands prove very effective when you’re on a long trip.
But if you really want to explore the maximum potential of Trippeo, sync your credit card and calendar with the application and every entry will automatically be listed in the app. Then your role would be left to taking pictures only; rest would be handled by Trippeo.
But the role of Trippeo is not limited to your business trip. When you return back and you have to compile a report out of your photos, even then Trippeo comes to your rescue. All you have to do is jump to the “Reports” section of the app, pick the expenses that you want to compile and you’re done. It’s as simple as that! Then you can directly send that report to your manager and get your reimbursements credited within 24 hours!
The interface of Trippeo is streamlined and rationalized to your maximum understanding. Your bills are properly sorted out in different categories and it’s always easy to find one. So it’s the perfect place to store your bills.
Overall, Trippeo is a very easy-to-use and handy solution to your “reimbursement” problems. It’s available for free in the App Store. However, after a free 1-month trial, you can continue their services for $5/month/user. So what do you say?
Pros: streamlined interface; sync credit card and calendar; create reports on-the-go; free 1 month trial.
