BROOKLYN, NEW YORK, USA, August 25, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Squad Trip, an automated payment solution for small and large group travel, announced the launch of its new online platform. Travel organizers can create booking pages, accept payments efficiently, and manage communication and finances all in one place. SquadTrip is the first millennial-targeted travel platform with flexible payouts, Apple Pay, and promo codes.

The new Software as a Service (or SaaS) platform is a time-saving tool that eliminates the need to track payments using spreadsheets or sending multiple SMS/e- emails. Travel professionals can create custom travel pages and travel packages and set up payment plans and automatic billing. Additional features also include booking details management, DocuSign integration for signing waivers and chargeback agreements, and daily payments with Stripe. SquadTrip users can create an account for free with no monthly payment and a 4% fee on each transaction.

“The idea for SquadTrip grew out of helping a close friend create an easier way to raise money for his birthday trip,” says SquadTrip co-founder Darrien Watson. “Using our software system, he turned an annual group trip into a million dollar travel business.”

The black-owned tech company was founded by college best friends Darrien Watson and Stevon Judd. The partners are New York natives from Canarsie, Brooklyn, and graduates of Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut. Darrien and Stevon began their entrepreneurial journey when they developed an event ticketing platform for black entrepreneurs and won eBay’s Startup Cup Challenge in 2017.

“Hundreds of travel organizers use our platform to manage three or more trips a year,” says Stevon Judd, co-founder of SquadTrip. “Most of our customers agree that our automated features make it easier to track and collect payments while growing their business.”

SquadTrip has been selected for the first Integrated Tulsa Techstars throttle, a program designed for startups led by diverse founders that focus on innovative solutions. With additional funding, the software startup will expand its offering to include marketing tools and educational resources for travel entrepreneurs. Since its creation, the company has made more than 10,000 trips.
