What are Concur Travel and Expense's top competitors?
We use Concur Travel and Expense for employees to book travel (flights, cars, hotels) and reimburse expense (can be related to Travel and Entertainment, Training, Meeting, Allowance during COVID, etc.). With Concur Travel and Expense, we can easily do reimbursement of expense with mobile phone or laptop very easily by just having the picture or softcopy of the receipt. We also use it to easily book a trip.
I recommend Concur Travel and Expense because of its ease of use and UI intuitiveness. It's also easy to configure and navigate. Workflow for expense approvals can be easily changed. It also works well with mobile apps. It also has a Single Sign-On so it can be integrated with your choice of the identity provider.
Employees are now able to submit expense claims from their mobile apps and they can take a picture of their receipt and quickly store it in Concur Travel and Expense without being worried that the receipt may be lost. We can also use the data from the expenses to find the trend of the expenses.
With the pandemic rolling in, internet reimbursement and home office reimbursement were made easier with Concur. It gave us the option to upload itemized bills and tag the right authority for each bill. Also, it accepted manual bill photos as well as PDFs that could be scanned through. It saved us a lot of hassle from getting reimbursement claims on an email.
Concur Travel & expense is best suited when you are travelling for a number of days. Concur mobile application helps you to easily fill daily claims & this will help you to save your time & also allows you to attached bills & invoices immediately.
We used Concur for booking trips, and for expense account submittal. Concur was used to compare and suggest airfares, and look for hotels and car rentals where we needed to travel. On the expense side, it was used for the end-to-end process, linking credit card information with receipts, and for the approval and reimbursement process.
SAP Concur travel and expense has provided a seamless integration with SAP ECC financial that reduced the time spent by accountants during month end, at the same time it provides employees with a tool to book travels and get proper approvals and receive company credit card transactions that will help during the expense reporting process.
Concur has simplified the invoice and bill consolidation and the claim process. Invoices can be sent directly through registered email IDs which Concur recognizes and makes available during the claims process. Concur also pulls in the expense invoice for the payments done through corporate credit card automatically. During claim request creation, we can consolidate multiple expense claims under a single request.
Concur Invoice is well suited for employee group that travels a lot, as the number of claims raised per month is very high for the traveling employees. On the other hand, the employee group such as contractors for which claims submission is part of the process, would not be appropriate.
The travel portion was great as it was very easy to navigate. The expense portion was oftentimes very tricky to submit. The different codes (approval codes, and report codes) were difficult to complete. It was not always clear on which to use and when.
During business trips, I can organize my expenses easily and well. Concur Travel and Expense can help me to capture well and without memorizing everything when I am back to do the expense report. It also warns me if my report has an issue or takes longer to get reimbursed money.
I have used Concur Travel and Expense within three organizations, and I find it extremely easy to use. At this time, I'm only using the expense function. The ability to easily create/duplicate expense reports containing consistent information month to month is extremely helpful. Effectively, I use previous months as templates, duplicate them, and then edit them. Concur Travel and Expense makes it very simple.
I also used to use Concur Travel and Expense for traveling and have always found it very intuitive.
Concur Travel and Expense works very well for entering one-off expenses. I find it particularly helpful month-to-month, as I have fairly consistent expense reports. I'm able to duplicate the prior month's report easily and edit it from there. This likely saves me 25-50% of my time in filling out a report.
It's easy to send receipts to Concur Travel and Expense via email as well, though uploading files directly within the app is tedious.
I think it is very easy to use, especially once you are acquainted with it. I think the UX could be improved so some things, like accessing old reports, are more intuitive once you learn it though it is not difficult to replicate.
If I remember correctly, some five or six years back when I went on my first business trip, we had an excel template sheet where we had to enter our expenses and then also attach the original receipts which as hard copies need to be submitted to the finance team in person which would take some time for these to be verified and processed. For some expenses, there were back and forth emails concerning the justification which again delay the reimbursement process which was really cumbersome. Now after a year or so, the concur travel and expense site was launched for all our employees, where we raise a travel and expense request with required details, upon manager approval all the flight and hotel bookings are done automatically without us needing to follow up. And also it is seamless in terms of submitting an expense where all we have to do is upload a soft copy of the receipt to the request and it gets processed quickly.
For any travel request, all I have to do is enter the travel segments and the dates scheduled along with project details the cost would be associated with which gives a clear picture to the manager who approves it. For expenses, it is easy to add multiple segments with the appropriate attachments and also a proper currency convertor that does base on the date the receipt has been generated. Easy to track the status of the expense report from anywhere without having to follow up with the manager/Finance team. Able to categorize the expenses based on their type in the portal. Easy reports that will help managers to have an idea of the expenses associated with a project function.
Concur has provided the interface where could have additional travelers to a single request instead of raising separate requests and also the customization that is offered where you could be integrated with other travel vendors is truly innovative. The ease of uploading receipts and their segmentation which gives a complete picture is something that I really like about this tool.
We use Concur Travel and Expense for all staff reimbursements as well as booking travel. In regard to expenses, Concur makes it much more simple for us to track reimbursements, streamline review and approval, and generate reports. For travel, it allows our staff to easily book airfare, hotels, etc through a reliable and user-friendly platform.
Concur Travel and Expense allows you to streamline travel and expenses into a single, easy to use system at a fairly reasonable cost. If your staff don't do a lot of travel and/or incur many business-related expenses then this is probably not a necessary system for your organization.
Whereas our finance dept used to have to manually track expenses and chase staff down for receipts, we are now able to streamline our expense and travel system to become more efficient, save money and drive greater user satisfaction.
I would rate 8 for job costing and expenses reporting across each department. Less appropriate - prefer to print monthly receipts based on credit card transactions/reports submitted in one pool instead of clicking on each expense report. On occasions, it doesn't capture our job/ cost center numbers from QB.
We currently use Concur for travel expense reimbursement and continuing education reimbursements. This allows users to be reimbursed through the regular payroll process, which eliminated the need to have our AP staff enter check requests. Also, Concur has an electronic approval process that eliminated paper and allows the audit team to verify approvers and if approvers viewed the report and receipts or just approved
Concur allows users to enter their expenses in a quick and easy manner and eliminates the need for AP to add expense requests manually. Also places the reimbursed amount in the user's pay which eliminates manual checks to employees. The reporting function through Cognos is only updated once a day which can be an issue when making adjustments to users
Moved education reimbursement to Concur with required electronic pre-approval and a yearly limit per employee. Limit the spend amount per expense type eliminate or flag electronicky potential duplicate transactions prior to submission which eliminates the need to follow up with employees and get reimbursed for duplicate expense submissions Electronic approval process with automatic steps to advance a report up the approval chain when expenses sit for 14 days with one approver
We use Concur for many uses but specifically, I use it for Expenses and Travel. It makes life on the road super simple when you need to make travel changes, book reservations, or get receipts done. When you couple the SAP Concur Expense and Travel offering with their travel services company it is as good as it gets. We always have the option to access a live Travel Agent to help us in real-time with our travel. Changes happen, clients move meetings, weather impacts flights and when you just need to get back home, Concur is the tool I count on. There is no going back. Concur is how I go forward.
SAP Concur really does own the Expense and Travel Market in my mind. However, when you look at the other products and offerings from Concur you learn that it really can do a lot more such as Duty of Care. Organizations have a legal and moral obligation to track and care for people they send on trips. Being able to track, communicate and even share data with family members during events is really helpful. Think of a natural disaster during a vendor conference. Tracking the health and location of your people, helping them make travel arrangements, and even communicating their safe status to family members are things Concur can do beyond travel and expense. This is just the tip of the Concur features really.
It has helped our company Digitally Transform Expense and Travel technology and processes. This has saved us millions of dollars per year in raw cost and tens of millions of dollars per year in people and processes. More importantly than just the savings is that our Organizational Efficiency has increased because our people are empowered to get themselves to the right place at the right time. All the while, maintaining company spending, auditing, and reporting requirements.

As mentioned earlier Concur Travel and Expense provides a unified solution for all your travel-related needs. It is a very seamless platform wherein you can easily book trips and add their subsequent expenses under the same trip. Although, when you upload a large amount of data or receipts the application seems to give a sluggish response. All in all, it provides a great solution for your organization.
Concur Travel and Expense has efficiently carried out the work as per our expectations, we have been able to streamline our entire process pertaining to travel management. This has helped us to keep our budgeting goals intact and we have ensured that very minimum issues are faced due to this. Especially our admin team has benefited substantially.
Concur allows me and those employees at my company to seamlessly submit work-related expenses for reimbursement to our company. Whether it is for travel, lodging, overtime meals or similar expenses, Concur makes it easy for my colleagues and me to complete the reimbursement process in a hassle-free manner. Without Concur, receipts were previously sent to an office administrator, and that was an inefficient process not easily able to be tracked.
Concur Travel and Expense is well suited for those who consistently work late and must expense overtime meals, and corresponding receipts, every week. With multiple receipts per week, Concur can save a lot of time when submitting expenses. Concur is similarly also very helpful for frequent travelers, both in booking travel and submitting travel-related expenses for reimbursement.
Concur Travel and Expense has saved my company time and money and enabled my colleagues and me not only to get reimbursed faster but experience much less stress and hassle when compiling and submitting expenses for reimbursement. Concur was a welcomed solution by my organization, and it has certainly improved employee satisfaction. Also, the functionality to add different colleagues who attended or shared in expenses is a game-changer.
Concur Travel and Expense has been our Budgeting tool for our organisation for a huge amount of time. We have been using concur for Managing Travel, Team Lunch, Work From Appliance granting, Food Bills, Broadband reimbursement and Book reimbursement. Our organisation provides a lot of benefits to the employees and managing them was always a difficult task. One way we achieved this during covid was moving all our expense management from inhouse tool to Concur.
During the covid pandemic situation we had to approve vaccination to employees and at the same time provide Covid wellness supplies. We used Concur Expense tool for employees to upload their vaccination bills and we were able to automate workflow of expensing the amounts with proper guidelines. We were able to provide wellness supplies reimbursement to the employees. After this a wide array of expenses were moved to Concur.
I use Concur [Travel and Expense] cloud solution to claim my expenses when it comes to flight and hotel booking, in addition to passport and visa fees paid in cash. I plan my trip using the approved airlines and hotels by my company. Having everything on our website makes [...] travel planning very easy and provides good assistance and guidance
Instead of reaching out to multiple travel agents and receiving multiple emails, and getting things unorganized, Concur Travel [and Expense] helped me save time and helped me focus on the different options with [the] best affordable prices. [The] payment [has] never been [easier] where you add either [your] company credit card or your personal card, and then payment will be [made] automatically.
Concur [Travel and Expense] made it easier to track and manage expenses concluded during employees trips and events. Instead of receiving reports from employees, each with his own format and logic, Concur [Travel and Expense] has unified and standardized this process.
I used Concur to book travel for myself and to approve travel for a team of more than 30 consultants. I also used it to manage my own expenses and approve expenses for the same team. Concur allowed me to easily manage what previously was a very manual process and made it very simple to stay in front of.
My favorite thing about Concur is all about how it works for the traveler. It's so easy to stay current no matter where you are at any time. It takes away the need to be in a specific place to book travel, keep up with expenses, or submit a report. As somebody who used to travel almost every week, that was one of the most time-consuming parts of my time when I wasn't on the road and I appreciated having Concur when we finally got it.
For our team, it allowed us to evolve our time when we weren't on the road away from expense management, tracking down receipts, etc, and repurpose that time to focus on our customers. That sounds minor, but when you have a team traveling upwards of 80% of the time, it's not. Concur was a game-changer for our team.
We mainly use Concur Travel and Expense to track and manage travel expenses across our organization. It has made it very easy for our employees as well as the admin team to generate and keep track of trip requests and their accompanying expenses. We can also integrate third-party travel platforms like TripIt.
As many people in our organization are not well versed in terms of technical aspects, it makes it easy for them to understand this platform with minimal efforts thereby reducing time and resources spent on training for this platform. Although the mobile application is not that great, I have faced issues multiple times.
Since the implementation of Concur Travel and Expense we have been able to efficiently manage, track, and create reports allowing our organization to grow greatly. Maintaining travel invoices was a very cumbersome task earlier but now it has been greatly automated thereby streamlining the entire process. Also, the reimbursement process has become faster now which benefits our employees.
I use it for my monthly expense reports. Because of the pandemic, I haven't traveled much in the last year, so my monthly expenses consist primarily of mobile phone charge reimbursements and a few annual report reimbursements for states that don't accept AMEX. The problems that it addresses are [the] speed/efficiency of processing the expense reports. I enter the information, and within one day, it is approved by my supervisor and then by the accounts payable team within 1-3 days.
[A] very user-friendly tool for people with significant expense reports. I have no idea about the cost of the program, but I would assume that if an organization doesn't have [an] employee base with a significant amount of users, that it would not be cost-effective. I submit reports monthly.
Having not used any other system, I can't opine on whether Concur [Travel and Expense] is particularly innovative as I have nothing to compare it against. All I know is that it works for [my co-workers and me]. Everyone that I know of who processes expense reports really likes the functionality of it.
Reporting has been our biggest win as we matured. Presenting data via bursting or scheduling to managers that make decisions has helped is keep an eye on cost while sending a message that finance is looking. Next, our duty-of-care processes have grown during the last 1.5 years thanks to pre-trip authorizations in Request. The request really helps us understand who really has to travel and once the pandemic is over we will leave it in place to manage spending by requiring manager and finance approver review.
