Key Considerations for SAPinsiders

  • Focus on integration. Travel and expense management software like SAP Concur works best when it is integrated with other back-end systems. SAP Concur integrates expense and travel data into a single system that helps organizations manage employee spend on an end-to-end basis while improving transaction visibility and optimizing corporate spend compliance.
  • Consider the employee experience. SAP Concur can provide faster reimbursement and trip approvals and reduce the hassle of filing expense reports, improving employee satisfaction and productivity.
  • Utilize analytics. Growing volumes of distributed and dynamic data challenge almost any organization to make sense of it and to use it proactively to manage travel and employee spending. SAP Concur includes advanced analytics that can help organizations derive insights from the data to develop a successful travel and expense strategy, particularly at a time of travel uncertainty, and control costs.
  • Train employees. To optimize the performance of SAP Concur, train your employees on how to effectively use its functionalities through online and virtual training sessions and resources describing best practices as well as tips and tricks.
