"A year ago, I was frustrated with the unproductive downtime and missed opportunities on business travel," Kevin Warden, CEO of WingUp, "and I'm proud to offer WingUp as the solution."

WingUp, the app that helps business travelers find contacts and potential meetings on the road, today announced an integration with Concur, the leading provider of spend management solutions and services. This integration makes it simple to sync Concur itineraries with WingUp's powerful mobile app to efficiently connect business travelers, locals, former colleagues and friends.

“We are committed to providing an ecosystem of App Center partners that includes Airbnb, Starbucks, and Uber - our customers find value in,” said Darren Koch, Senior Vice President for Concur. “Our partnership with WingUp brings our user community one step closer to the Perfect Trip.”

Through the Concur App Center, users automatically sync their Concur trip itineraries with WingUp and instantly search their upcoming travel destinations for potential meetings. The app lets users discover contacts using various filters which identify both travelers and locals along with others in their company or industry.

"Whether traveling for sales meetings or conferences, or simply finding a few potentially unplanned hours, WingUp is the most useful app available for location-based professional networking,” said Joe Ross, President of CSIdentity Corporation. “It’s a great way to network and even arrange meetings before I arrive. And when I’m there I can quickly hit up a contact to grab a coffee or drink instead of staring at my laptop.”

"A year ago, I was frustrated with the unproductive downtime and missed opportunities on business travel," Kevin Warden, CEO of WingUp, "and I'm proud to offer WingUp as the solution."

The WingUp app can be downloaded for iPhone at bit.ly/WingUpApp and the Concur connection can be found in the Concur App Center. You can also find WingUp on Twitter: @WingUpApp
