One of the key uses of a calendar system is to set aside the time needed for trips
When your clients are using their calendar, often they are planning a meeting or a trip that results in an overnight stay. Today when that happens, they have to go to a separate place to make those plans. And there is nothing to prompt or remind them to get a hotel.
Doesn’t it make sense to bring hotel availability and booking closer to their ‘reason’ for the trip? For the first time, you can help your clients easily answer the question: “Where should I stay?” With TripProximity, your calendaring system becomes a 24-hour concierge that provides an integrated answer: “at a hotel nearby.”

Imagine this use case
Angie uses your calendaring tool to keep track of her busy world. Her sister is currently undergoing cancer treatment at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville. It is a recurring calendar entry.
While Angie is adding the calendar entry, as soon as she enters the address, the TripProximity smart trip tool is displayed. It is aware that this is not a conference call.
The tool auto-fills Mayo Clinic’s address from the calendar entry so Angie can search and book a hotel nearby or view the hospital location on a map.
No address in the calendar entry? No problem. Angie can click on the pencil and type the name of the location and the city and we will look it up.
It streamlines Angie’s life — and since she is staying nearby, she can be more available to her sister at this tough time.
Test it out. Experience the magic of proximity-based hotel booking.
How TripProximity strengthens your value
There are many choices for calendaring tools. Enhance the total experience for your customers. And be known as the innovator that adds to the bottom line while also supporting your favorite charities.
No matter the reason
Whether the calendar entry is for a business meeting, a trip to visit your wife’s parents, an out of town concert or sporting event or a graduation trip, your customers will appreciate having trip planning integrated right into your product. They can use the smart trip widget to get driving directions or figure out how long it will take to get where they are going. If it takes too long, they can even get an airline ticket.
And for trips that require an overnight, they can easily book a hotel. And the traveler gets to choose properties that meet their proximity, brand, price and amenity preferences and we provide 7x24x365 support, so you don’t have to!
Make your map smarter
If you already have a map on your site, replace it with our Smart Map feature. You can easily add our widget to your calendar platform and for all meetings with an address, you can show their location on a map. Then right from that same tool, you allow your user to access hotel booking (I’m staying), driving directions (I’m driving) and optional air booking (I’m flying).
Although the user may know the hotels that are near their destination, they don’t know what is available. TripProximity shows just those available hotels that are nearby.
Add a new revenue stream and at the same time, make giving back easy
Whether you charge for your system or it is offered free, TripProximity brings to you a new, incremental revenue opportunity that can bring multiple transactions a month from a single user. We share a royalty with you on a quarterly basis, driven by the bookings made by your customers. We also give you a bonus incentive if you turn on Smart Trip planning for all of your customers.
With TripProximity, every trip can also matter to the charities you support. A percentage of the proceeds from travel bookings made on your system are given to your charity of choice annually.
Site placement is easy.
The TripProximity widget conforms to any HTML container defined within your system.
Choosing a location near customers’ decision points creates greater value for you. For a Calendar platform, this is:
- Calendar item or event – for items that have an address (no URLs or phone numbers)
- Any place that you display a map today – switch to our smart map view of the smart trip tool
Each tool can be built separately and have different characteristics (different images or color schemes) and we can track analytics and bookings separately.
