Likelihood to Recommend

DATABASICS Expense

Ability to sync with many other systems and flexible systems. I do not recommend for areas with a bad internet connection.

TripIt

TripIt is one of those business apps that, while not strictly required, represents a huge quality of life improvement for those of us who travel regularly for work. Capturing your itinerary information in one place, so you have one point of reference is a great benefit. When you couple that with relevant notifications about your itinerary, and an Apple Watch app for quick at-a-glance information about your travel plans, you really can't beat it. Highly recommended.

Cons

DATABASICS Expense

  • Allow money returns from an advance to be reflected in the advance balance. If an employee settles an advance by returning cash, it does not reflect that in the system.

TripIt

  • Tripit is very USA travel-centric. Many confirmations for European bookings need a manual entry.
  • Calendar sync should be near real time. Too often if I delete something on Tripit I find it still on my calendar.
  • Tripit should integrate with more third-party calendar sources so I can know what's going on in the areas I'm visiting before I arrive.

TripIt 8.3
Based on 4 answers
This rating is solely based on information I've gotten for TripIt's self-help options. I've never had to contact them directly for support. Nonetheless, their online FAQ and knowledgebase have provided answers to all the questions I've had, including the lack of a boarding pass feature that I mentioned earlier in my review. All in all, I've had no issues here.

It costs less. Flexible employees allow you to customize the system to fit your requirements.

TripIt

I've tried google trips and Tripcase in the past, but it doesn't work as smooth as TripIt. They sometimes don't recognize the confirmation emails that I forwarded them.

Return on Investment

DATABASICS Expense

  • Flexibility allows us to speed up the process of reconciling advances.
  • Ability to approve reports by mobile phone allows to speed up the process of posting the expenses.
  • Scanning supporting documents becomes easy as you can use a mobile phone camera and attach it to your report.

TripIt

  • Since I do not own the business, I cannot speak for ROI for the entire company.
  • But it does benefit myself and my family members/colleagues to stay organized.
