How quickly do travel planning and accounting go from hand in your company? Do you have a complete overview of your employees’ travel expenses?

SAP Concur simplifies your business travel management by supporting all processes from travel planning and approval to settlement and reimbursement. Travel expenses are always in view, and your employees spend less time on travel administration – leaving more time for the important tasks. In addition, you reduce the error rate in bookings and settlements, automatically take tax benefits and bonus systems into account and thus reduce costs.

The bi-directional data exchange enables you to import all required master data from SAP ERP into the SAP Concur solution, transfer travel expense reports to the ERP, and enable correct data transfer. The results? Precise booking transactions and rapid payment processing.


How SAP Concur Can Benefit Your Travel Management Organization – the Main Three Areas

  • Planning and booking: You and your employees request, plan and book the trip in one application. You comply with all business travel policies and automatically benefit from stored bonus programs or master agreements. In the future, your employees can book train, flight or hotel reservations simply via SAP Concur, and travel expense reports can be photographed and uploaded via the app.
  • Accounting: You and your employees can easily create your travel accounting using the app. Travel flat rates are considered and calculated automatically. That way you and your colleagues have more time for more important tasks.
  • Cost management: You analyze exactly where your travel budget is going. You can use these results to negotiate discounts, save taxes and plan your budget with confidence.

In addition to these operational improvements, there is also a strategic view on business travel management: Uncomplicated, error-resistant and efficient processes for your employees are an important component for the experience of your employees.

For example, fast accounting and payment can contribute to greater employee satisfaction and thus also strengthen your employee commitment. SAP Concur makes this positive effect part of your Human Experience Management (HXM), as this approach aims to improve the needs and experiences of employees at work. HXM focuses on what employees need to be successful – for example, by automating repetitive, non-value-added tasks. In addition, feedback continuously improves your HR department, because employee satisfaction can be efficiently queried and evaluated.


As a result, many small and large positive employee experiences strengthen the satisfaction of colleagues and ensure less fluctuation. And at the end of the day, these human experiences also add up to better business results. So, it’s clear that the appreciation for your employees is also evident in apparent HXM side issues such as travel management.
