Time-saving direct inventory access
Once travel is completed, participating travel suppliers deliver complete electronic folio data in the form of electronic receipts (e-receipts) directly into the corporate traveller’s expense claim.
Save your money and cut nasty travel booking fees
With user-friendly tools, Concur increases adoption and reduces reliance on travel agents which can cut travel booking fees by as much as 79 percent per transaction.* That amount of savings could go straight to the bottom line.
Increase your visibility with powerful analysis and reporting
