Concur Travel and Expense

Concur is great for a company or department that has many employees who get reimbursed for expenses. It is robust, with reporting functionality, an app, and the ability to book flights and hotels. I think for a bigger company it's excellent but for a smaller company with fewer employees, a simpler option should do just fine.

For a small business the free site is terrific. It offers a full expense reporting function for reps and includes everything that a comparable paid service would. It also offers commenting, where the manager can write comments on the expense report, and the ability to save and print reports.

Pros

Concur Travel and Expense

  • Searching for flights and lodging - It's easy to search for specific hotels in target cities and it's nice to know that the options surfaced are company approved/preferred.
  • Knowing what is "out of budget"- I appreciate that Concur flags if a selection is beyond what we'd typically pay for a service/stay for that given location.
  • Expense Reports - It's easy to combine all expenses into one report for approval. I like doing this for a months' worth of expenses at a time, as it streamlines the approval process for my manager.

  • Expensify allows a company to establish simple approval rules and pipelines. The days of remembering who approves which user's expense reports are in the past.
  • Expensify allows users to easily code their expenses to the accounting department's general ledger. During implementation, the accounting team is tasked with creating a map between simple categories/description and general ledger account codes. E.g., Telephone -> 66150
  • The mobile app allows users to quickly take photos of their receipts/invoices/supporting documents on the go. Our CEO LOVES the ability to upload support to the app as he is signing the check at a restaurant.
  • The software downloads corporate credit card data daily. Furthermore, they mark "verified credit card transactions" with an icon that indicates as much.
  • The administration has the ability to request "copilot" access to user's accounts. This allows curators the ability to help users follow best practices.

Cons

Concur Travel and Expense

  • The 30-character limit for descriptions can be tough.
  • Breaking out baggage fees into a separate expense type could be helpful as they are so prevalent.
  • General comment on most Concur interfaces: getting to the comments section or the audit trail is not easy.
Erika Ruch | TrustRadius Reviewer

Expensify

  • The SmartScan feature sometimes has typos. I don't know enough about the technology to even know if this is something that could be better.
  • The user experience is a little bit clunky when SmartScan doesn't work and you have to do things manually. Not sure a way around this, though.

Now that we are fully on Concur, switching is not an option. Concur has become ingrained in our expense reporting process. Furthermore, Concur continues to improve its offering. Each month, they release updates and changes, many of which were client requested. Concur's constant evolution means it is adapting with my business

We like using the tool and we receive positive feedback from employees and management who use the tool. It saves time and helps us concentrate on the value adding activities so we are very likely to keep using Expensify in the future

I really like the app. It's easy to add receipts. I can easily find the categories for my expenses as well. I think some of my confusion and frustration with the product comes from the account numbers my institution assigns to purchases. I do with that Concur saved commonly used accounts so it would be even easier to complete my reports.

Mobile works great, but let's be honest. It's just a photograph. Their OCR and human turk technology works great to scan that photo and enter the proper information. The web interface is decent and allows you to work with single expenses in great detail. What's missing is the ability to mass update expenses, and this sometimes hurts, especially if you're a heavy user of the system.

Reliability and Availability

In prior years I would have given them a 9.5 for availability. Unfortunately in 2015 so far this rating has dropped to a 7 overall.
We have experienced far too many interruptions - from admins to employees who rely on it for day to day booking of travel and submission of expense reports. Server errors, slow system response time and spinning wheels are too common place. Those things should be a rare occurrence, not a daily interruption.

While Conur still has great product offerings overall, they are currently not offering world class or best in class product (and customer service) availability. Remaining hopeful they step up and get their A game going again soon.

I have never had to use customer support when using Concur Expense - the UX could be a bit nicer on the eyes or easier to understand, but there have never been any problems when using Concur Expense that I have had to ask or reach out to customer support to help me with anything.

Our rep has been amazing. He has built custom reports for us that have been very time consuming and difficult. Our reps are also currently looking into new submission solutions for us that we are excited about. They came up with this and recommended it on their own without me complaining about an issue. They are about our success and are very excited about the product they offer.

It's live (you can ask questions), it's free, it's good. What's not to like. Only reason it's not getting a "10" is breadth and depth, more would be better.

There are different implementation teams for each module of the product you purchase, so implementation is not a 'one size fits all' environment. Also, the different implementation teams have different ways of doing things, so Concur could stand some standardization and streamlining in this area.A Project Manager can make or break an implementation so don't be scared to ask for a new one if things are rocky.

Alternatives Considered

Concur Travel and Expense

We used PeopleSoft for travel previously. It was great, easy to use, could crank out an expense report in about 10 minutes. It was easier than Concur Travel and Expense to deduct anything that wasn't eligible for reimbursement, ex: room service, personal flights. Could still see expense reports fairly easy. PeopleSoft's travel library portion isn't as optimal as Concur's.
Moriah Crane | TrustRadius Reviewer

Expensify

Expensify and Concur are similar products, but we ultimately went with Expensify because of its more robust sync options (e.g., syncs to more systems easily) and was more cost-effective for the number of users we have set up (between 50-100). I haven't used Concur to any great extent but it seemed like a reasonable solution given a different economic situation for the company. I've also used expense reporting utilities connected to systems like Maconomy and NetSuite with no real issues.

It can grow easily with a business, handling plenty of volume. However, the UI inefficiencies add up. The pricing can work for or against a business, as it’s based on volume. If you can discipline your employees to group their expenses perhaps on a monthly basis, you can keep the cost down a bit

Return on Investment

Concur Travel and Expense

  • We've had substantial gains in productivity in auditing. We saved 1 FTE by enabling certain audit rules in the software and moving to a sample audit instead of a 100% receipt audit. We estimate this savings at $90k annually. We saved an additional 1/2 FTE when we implemented Detect. It uses AI to read and audit all receipts and reports. So we now do 100% review for $150k less per year.
  • We were able to incorporate a Corporate Credit Card program for all of our employees, which earns us an annual rebate of $200k.
  • Using mobile capture for receipt images saves us an average of 5 minutes per expense report. Since we submit over 12,000 reports annually, we estimate this saves us about $50k per year.
  • Through partnership apps like Uber and Lyft, we estimate we save about $20k annually from the cost of traditional transportation methods.

  • I was not part of the purchasing group/decision-maker. Not sure what the cost of the platform is.
  • What I can say, is it saves time for me to submit expenses this way than in email threads. In that sense, you're saving money on workers/working hours.
