Did You Know?

New and Updated
Trip Boss Tutorials

One thing we found from our Trip Boss and Travel Survey is the need to better communicate features and to add some tutorials.  We announced a few in the November newsletter.  We'll try to address more, as they come up, in future newsletters.

Here are a few more:
Did you know...
1) You can plan legs of a road trip using Trip Boss?  Our special Trip Planner calculator in the Trip Planner tab will help you determine the distance or the time that travel from point A to B will take. We have a full tutorial on our website.

You can export expense and mileage data from Trip Boss to your desktop computer via Outlook?  We have updated our tutorial on our website.  It takes a few extra steps with Outlook, but the tutorial covers them.  We are working on an easier and better solution, which should be available in 2007....

Don't forget--a complete detailed manual for Trip Boss (and all our software) is available on our website.  It's a smart .pdf, complete with a table of contents and clickable links for easy navigation.

4) Reminder--Trip Boss has a companion-- Mobile Travel Aide.  Any mobile browser can access and get travel information such as flight status, ground transportation, weather radar, restaurant and sights info, currency rates, mapping and directions.

Trip Boss 2.0 was recently reviewed in Palmtop User magazine, issue 13.

"Trip Boss is the perfect companion, and the best in its class."
"There are a thousand uses for your PDA while travelling, but one is to track details of the trip itself: storing travel itinerary information, hotel booking details, expenses, and so on."

VOTETHANK YOU to all who voted for Trip Boss in the Palm Addict 2006 Reader Awards.   Trip Boss is looking at a close second place!  There may still be time to vote--winners will be announced on Palm Addict soon.
