Egencia Makes Smartwatches Even Smarter

Business travel company Egencia delivers on cross-platform consistency with apps for Apple Watch and Android Wear, allowing business travellers to switch between Egencia applications on desktop, mobile, and smartwatch without missing a connection.

The Egencia watch app is a discreet personal assistant that sends step-by-step alerts to guide users along their trip. The watch app stays on top of disruptions in real time and provides map-driven directions and transportation choices, while users can summon an Egencia travel consultant when need help by tapping the watch.

The Egencia app for Apple Watch was built for the latest version of watchOS for the best possible performance. When travellers tap their watches to access Egencia, the app shows up-to-the-second information, automatically refreshed in the background. The app also includes features built for other devices, including Egencia AssistMe and its ground transportation guide with the Citymapper and Uber API integration, originally built for mobile.

“Egencia is meeting the demand among business travellers for consumer-quality products. Since we own, develop, and run our own technology, we are able to quickly bring these wearable apps to market based on that demand,” says Michael Gulmann, vice president of global product for Egencia.

Egencia has recently significantly redesigned its mobile hotel experience for business travellers using iPhone, iPad, and Android devices to make it consistent with the desktop version found in every Egencia website around the world.

Apps for Apple Watch and Android Wear are now available in the App Store and Google Play.
