tripchi, a leisure app for the business traveler, was recently featured in CNBC’sWorld’s Most Promising New Companies. SerpicoDEV serves as the software development partner for tripchi and would like to congratulate CEO Chandra Jacobs for this high distinction.

tripchi is a mobile app that helps business travelers find actionable things to do during their down-time. It is explicitly designed for the business traveler–this means it focuses on usability and speed to get to relevant and actionable recommendations. In doing so tripchi removes the fluff that leisure travelers care about but business travelers don’t, and cuts right to the chase to get the business traveler onward to interesting activities.

With tripchi, you can be on your way to something interesting to do in five minutes or less–whether it’s catching a concert, noshing at a local favorite, or getting your culture on, tripchi allows you to have instant gratification. It captures your personality in 3 steps, with adaptive/learning algorithms incorporating your interactions, and analysis of your social media profiles, to cut down the number of questions to answer. The recommendations served up include all the information needed to have you on your way, including pictures, a description, reviews, directions, and purchasing ability.

Chandra is currently based in Boston, where she is gaining momentum for tripchi in the local market as well as nationally as seen by this CNBC feature. You can follow Chandra’s blog about travel, entrepreneurship, and random adventures at therestlessroad.wordpress.com.

Read more about tripchi on SerpicoDev’s client spotlight, including a behind the scenes look at the development process. Look for the app to be available in the iPhone app store soon.
