Before the upgrade there were plenty of limitations e.g. multicurrency, # of unique expense types limited, no mobile – but now on the premier edition there are not really any functional limitations.
Previously the reporting tool was embedded in Concur. In the new version, they are using a Cognos data warehouse which is separately accessed. It takes another level of sophistication to be able to use. I would rather have both as it’s now more difficult to get data out now.
I would like to be able to add more expense types ourselves. Right now, I have to go to Concur for that.
The homepage allows both travel and expense management access – it is integrated. The homepage also allows you to see what you need to approve, your existing expense reports, travel itineraries etc. A front-end dashboard makes for quick access.
You can upload your receipt images via a scan from your iPhone. The manager approving can see all those receipts.
iVantage HR file/employee roster - data gets ported to Success Factors (our performance management system), SAP, Salesforce.com and Concur. Planning on doing automation of employee changes in upload to Concur.
SAP - expenses go into the financial system. There is a weekly dump via 3rd party tool.
