Brief Product Description and Pricing

With Concur's corporate travel solution, travelers are empowered to make smart choices based on their individual preferences and their corporate travel policy. This saves money while driving adoption and streamlining the whole online booking process. Corporate travelers can quickly and simultaneously book local and international flights, cars, hotels, and rail reservations from the web or from their smartphone.

Concur delivers a web-based and mobile solution that streamlines and automates the entire expense reporting process. Credit card data is automatically imported and pre-populated into the expense report, saving time and improving accuracy. Concur also automatically matches travel booking information with corporate card charges and electronic receipts to create a secure system of checks and balances for your company's spending. With Expense Report Auditing, organizations can verify line item expenses against submitted receipts while ensuring that purchases are in compliance. Concur's dedicated auditing resources ensure that all receipts are valid and properly classified, that spending is properly allocated, and that expenses submitted by specific groups or individual employees are given the appropriate level of attention and control.

The Expense Pay service streamlines the process of reimbursing credit cards and employees. Corporate cards are paid directly, according to your schedule, helping control cash flow and optimizing rebates. Employees are reimbursed for out-of-pocket expenses through direct deposit to their bank accounts.

Concur's Business Intelligence service provides automated, end-to-end reporting and analysis tools that provide clear insight into how your company and employees spend their travel and expense budgets. Unlike other expense reporting solutions that can only provide access to silos of information from unconnected sources, Concur provides visibility into all employee-initiated spending in one place. This unique, web-based solution gives clients access to a virtually limitless number of reports.

The Invoice Management solution automates the tedious and manual invoicing and vendor payment process. Intuitive and easy-to-use, the Invoice Management solution enables organizations to efficiently capture, process, and track vendor invoices and check requests for payment in a timely and efficient manner via an on-demand service, eliminating paper and reducing costs.

Concur includes mobile T&E capabilities for Android™, BlackBerry®, iPhone, and iPad devices at no extra cost. This gives employees the power and flexibility to manage their travel itineraries or to track their expenses from their smartphone. With Concur's mobile app, travelers have immediate access to their travel itineraries, making it easy and convenient to access the information or to make changes. Cash expenses such as tips or taxi fares can be quickly added to an expense report, receipt images can be captured with the phone's camera, and credit card charges are automatically made available in the mobile application for reporting.

TripIt
TripIt®, the leading mobile trip management service from Concur, helps people organize and share their travel plans - no matter where they book. Travelers simply forward their travel confirmation emails from over 3,000 sites to plans@tripit.com. TripIt automatically creates a master itinerary that combines all their travel plans plus maps, directions, and more. With TripIt, you can share and collaborate on trips with friends and colleagues using social networks or TripIt Groups. TripIt itineraries can be accessed online, via iPhone, Android, and BlackBerry devices, or from m.tripit.com. TripIt Pro premium service for frequent travelers automatically monitors travel itineraries, providing mobile alerts, alternate flight options, frequent traveler point tracking, flight refund tracking and notification, and automated trip sharing.
