Knowing the latest on your plane status, your hotel reservation, and your rental car normally involves a pile of paper, or searching through the phone for confirmation emails.
Add to this the travelers need for current information on their own personal and financial accounts, and you basically have a road warrior that is extremely data-hungry. But the data-hunger is normal, all we're talking about here is the ability to:
- Organize all trips by destination and collect your airfare, hotel, rental car and other information together
- Pin all of your reservation information to your calendar
