Conferma introduces TripPay mobile app

Conferma introduced a mobile app that allows clients to settle hotel bookings, the payment technology provider announced. Using the TripPay app, travelers can display to front-desk clerks during check-in or checkout the front and back digital images of a virtual card, which would contain a 16-digit number and three-digit security code created by the client's travel management company.

With TripPay, travelers also can resend booking confirmations to a hotel's fax machine and receive a reservation notification once a trip is booked. The virtual card number disappears from the app after the checkout date, indicating it no longer can be used. Travelers also can use TripPay to photograph hotel invoices and receipts and submit them to Smart New Accounts Payable, Conferma's reporting and reconciliation tool, which matches that information with booking data.

The app is available for all Android and iOS devices. Conferma now is developing contactless payment capabilities using near-field communication technology, according to CEO Simon Barker.
