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.

SAP Ariba Contract Management

If you have or work for a company that needs to manage lots of contracts at once, keeping track of each of them, it's the perfect tool needed in your business. Ariba Contract Management allows you to have a complete control over all your procurement contracts in an easy going, friendly platform. Would totally recommend it for small or large business that manage lots of procurement or sales contracts

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.

SAP Ariba Contract Management

  • SAP Ariba has Ariba Supply Chain Network that makes Suppliers/Vendors/Buyers onboarding very easy. Ariba Contract Management is very well integrated with Ariba network and hence sharing contractual documents and information are very easy.
  • SAP Ariba provide integration with SAP ERP which takes out the effort needed to integrate Ariba with SAP.
  • Ariba exposes API and ITK to do integration if your ERP is none SAP.

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

SAP Ariba Contract Management

  • The only point I can think that Ariba can improve is the performance issue. Sometimes it is getting very slow. Other than that Ariba functions very well.
  • In Ariba, assigning facilitators and monitors needs to be simplified.
  • The customer support team should have more admin rights.

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

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.

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.

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.

Based on 8 answers
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.

SAP Ariba Contract Management

Ariba Contract Management is more user friendly than SAP. It does not have all the interative functionalities that Ariba has, such as the approval flows, etc. It is easier to train users to use Ariba Contract Management than it is to use SAP. Ariba is more affordable than the SAP licenses.

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.

SAP Ariba Contract Management

  • ROI is spread over a longer term than we originally expected
  • Implementation cost is high
  • Certainly improved efficiency overall and better vendor management and digital enablement
  • Eco system is growing and scalable
