    Pros: 

    Good idea, give option of annual subscription or pay-as-you-go

    Cons: 

    Requires access to your email

    I will not be giving access to my email to any platform which is not open-sourced. Since the software is the business here, the platform can't really be open-sourced. But for this reason only, I won't be recommending it to a friend.

    Daniel Li has never used this product.

I would rather just forward emails than allow full access

@scotty_mcq we used to work that way... the reason we no longer do it is, it's much more burden on the end user, who has to remember to forward us confirmation emails, let us know when they cancel reservations, and (sometimes) forward us airline correspondence. We want to serve you without having to do anything - we can only do that with inbox access.

@schneider, why not both?

@zappe because we want to provide a seamless user experience, serve the user without them having to do anything.

@scotty_mcq @schneider why not be an add-on to tripit.com ? or have it with both options?

Hey guys, this is a big deal for us, as big as launching the company itself! Our goal has always been to make customer service less painful, to stop companies from wasting your time, and to get you what you deserve. Would love to hear your thoughts and answer any questions you have!

I didn't use your service and I could rate the app, but the gif of the magician is awesome. Good luck for the launch day 🔥

Same thing as DreamCheaper.com, who's been around for several years now. DreamCheaper doesn't require access to your emails, you simply forward your booking receipts and their software does the rest.

@ebsalberto Dreamcheaper just filed for bankruptcy https://www.gruenderszene.de/all...

@schneider Didn't know that, thanks. What are you doing that's different?
Michael Schneider
Michael SchneiderMaker@schneider · CEO, Service
@ebsalberto we are much more automated than they were... we use software to do nearly everything, they used humans for a lot of it.

Why do you think Service can succeed when DreamCheaper and TripRebel failed?
Michael Schneider
Michael SchneiderMaker@schneider · CEO, Service
@kyunbit mostly using software vs humans to do the job. and a superior user experience.
