Implementation Guide for WWE

To be installed on your corporate website as a VISIT US page

WWE can add the Smart Trip tool to your website as a VISIT US page.  This will allow anyone that is traveling to your offices, whether driving or flying to get driving directions and book a hotel nearby.

To power your Ticketing Platforms

The Smart Trip tool can be used to allow ticket purchasers to plan a trip to the event.  It will dynamically take the address from the event venue and find the available hotels nearby, plus find driving time and directions and optionally rent a car or buy an airline ticket.

To plan travel to any event venue

The Smart Trip tool can be added to your venue landing pages to allow anyone traveling to an event at that venue to find a hotel nearby.

The Event Widget (dynamic)

The Event widget is one of our Smart Trip tools.  It allows you to dynamically embed trip planning in any event in your system.

It is distinct from the Venue widget in that it has a specific date range for the event and a location where the event is held.

The next section includes your snippet.  Then you will find the instructions for our Dynamic tool, which shows you how to substitute your data for our variables in real time, so that you only have to install the widget snippet once.  Once it is installed, if you wish to make changes, you can edit the base elements of the widget in the Portal and you do not have to reinstall the snippet.  See the defaults in the last section.

Your code snippet (paste in as Text or in a Raw HTML container)

<script type="text/javascript" data-id="tp-widget" data-token="ZT999OlcUPAlOo3y6y9XBCAe0q8Il1RA1Sf1dVNe55p0TclR9883BwF6VHXh9c5x" src="https://widget.tripproximity.com/js/widget.min.js"></script><div class="tp-widget" id="tp-widget"></div>

Your Variable Settings can be modified in your TripProximity Portal

  • The tool type is set to EVENT
  • The header text is set to “Plan my trip to “
  • Pass the Event Name as a variable
  • The POI name will be appended to the header text
  • We have stored a default image that you can override at display time
  • Pass the Tracking number at display time from your customer information
  • Pass the location information in the address field at display time
  • We default to the US and USD for currency
  • The booking brand will default to the hotels nearby
  • The color scheme uses #b42d27 as the button color and #bababa as the header color
  • The widget is set to display the MAP in front.  If you would like a HOTEL widget as the default, we can change it or we can provide a separate widget for that purpose, which could be called based on a business rule
  • We have enabled the Air and Driving tabs
  • The user can enter the departure and arrival airports at transaction time
  •  The event dates should be passed to us at transaction time

Dynamic Tool - Customizing with variables from your system

Add to the widget snippet the dynamic variable elements that you wish to pass at display time, preceded by the following two lines, shown in green. Follow the variables with the closing code segment, shown in green.

We’ve included the recommended variables for WWE (shown encased in %VARIABLENAME% signs, which you will strip out in your actual entry):

<script type=”text/javascript”>
tripWidget({
eventStart: ‘YYYY/MM/DD’,
eventEnd: ‘YYYY/MM/DD’,
headerText: ‘Plan your trip to ‘,
appendPOI: ‘Y’,
poiName: ‘%EVENTNAME%’,
address: ‘%STREET%, %CITY%,%STATE%,%POSTCODE%’,
mapTab: ‘1’,
trackingCode: ‘%CUSTOMERTRACKINGINFO%’,
imageUrl: ‘%IMAGEURL%’,
imageLink: ‘%IMAGELINK%’,
})
</script>
The conditional MapTab flag is new.
1.  If there is no address in the contact record, set to 0.  The system will display the hotel page which will allow them to look up the company name or start typing an address and it will complete.
2.  If you have a full address or just city/state, set to 1,  it will default to the map.  If there is no %STREET%, the hotel widget will default to the text in the portal for address, which is instructional on looking up the exact address.
Once you have the code installed, contact us with the test link and we will help to test on multiple platforms and on multiple browsers.

The Venue Widget (dynamic)

The Venue widget is one of our Smart Trip tools.  It allows you to embed trip planning on any page in your system or on your site or blog where there is a contact with an address.  A venue can be a physical place, like a company or a museum, or it can be a location like a park or a beach.  As long as we can pinpoint a latitude/longitude, we can “trip enable” the contact record.

This tool is distinct from the Event widget in that the dates of travel are relative to the date that the tool is displayed, e.g. travel 7 days from today for 1 night.

What brands can I choose from for the booking system that the traveler sees?

Depending on how you implement the widget, you may have a different need for targeted messaging in the booking system.  For example, for a calendaring implementation, you may want to use TheHotelsNearby Companies.  Or for a contact management system, just TheHotelsNearby.  Or if you are designating all of the upside from using the widget to your favorite charity, you can use TravelingToGive.   The next selection shows you all of the possibilities.

The Brand Options

The default refid is 5135 and the default brand is The Hotels Nearby.

Private Label Branding

Can we use our own brand?  Absolutely!

For a one time fee of $1500 you can provide your own header artwork to us for the booking back end.

External System Interaction

The TripProximity widget interacts with the following systems:

  • Google Places for lookup of the venues and addresses in the address field
  • Google Maps for lookup of the latitude/longitude of any address

Once the input from the widget is received, we pass a search string to our booking system.  It contains:

  • Brand to be displayed in the booking system
  • Travel parameters
  • Tracking information to provide reporting back to you for each client

CSS

The widget has its own style sheet that governs the display of the widget within a container.

 

Rules for Display

The widget can be populated with event and venue information, as well as contact information.  Ideally, the widget needs the full address to do a lookup of the hotels nearby.

If you only have a city/state, we recommend that you use the conditional map field to display the map with city/state, but to prompt the user to use the Google Places functionality to look up the name of the organization, venue or street address of the place that they are going.

The date fields for events can be coupled with a business rule.  For instance if you have an event that begins before noon, you may want to set the date of arrival to 1 day before the event begins.  If the event ends after 3pm, you may want to set the date of departure to 1 day after the event.

Just a reminder, even if there is no address or a partial address (city/state), our new widget with the Google Places lookup can find the precise address of the venue or company that they are visiting (even a Starbucks or TopGolf! or finding a hotel near someone’s house that works from home).

Static or Dynamic Widget

The static widget contains the following:

async onload=”tripWidget()”

The dynamic widget does not load asynchronously.  If you turn on the dynamic flag in the portal in the widget editor, it removes that line from the code snippet that is generated.  If you try to install a dynamic widget directly into an HTML container on WordPress, it will NOT render.

AGE-OLD BUSINESS PROBLEM SOLVED BY GREENROPE AND TRIPROXIMITY

The phone call asking business contact “where should I stay?”is now obsolete.

 

SOLANA BEACH, CA February XX, 2018  —  To ease CRM user’s speed in planning face-to-face meetings that require an overnight stay, GreenRope has launched a new “Visit” tab on every Contact Record in its popular complete CRM system.  Leveraging the smart trip technology of TripProximity, the “Visit” tab enables users to plan a visit with driving directions and smart search of hotels nearby.

 

“It’s smart to bring trip planning closer to the motivation for the trip. It’s a challenge I’ve faced many a time.  I finish a call agreeing to meet at a client’s office – only to realize “where is the heck should I stay?” said Lars Helgeson, GreenRope CEO/Founder. “Partnering with TripProximity to integrate smart trip technology makes life easier for every business person hitting the road.”

The new GreenRope Contact Record “Visit” tab is context sensitive to that contact record. It auto-fills a search for hotels nearby, driving directions and more from the address in your contact record.

 

“Don’t have an address for the company?  No problem, with our smart trip technology, you can search for the address right within the Visit tab.  The tool lets you take care of important trip logistics right in your CRM work flow, and frees your mind to focus on the “deal” you are working on. GreenRope users can choose the properties that meet their proximity, brand, price and amenity preferences at over 980,000 hotel properties worldwide,“ said Chicke Fitzgerald, CEO and Founder of Solutionz, the smart trip tech behind TripProximity. “GreenRope demonstrates its passion for their customers’ experience by implementing the TripProximity smart trip tool in their product.”
