Concur Request is a must for any organisation that wants to take control over its business travel spending and eliminate unnecessary expenses – before it’s incurred! This module is essentially your travel agency and online booking tool. It automates the entire request and approval process and helps you get an overview of travel costs, cash advances and expenses before the trip is booked. As the approver, you can compare the costs with the available budget and make strategic decisions or approve the trip.
Concur Request can be customized according to your internal approval processes and can help ensure compliance with your company’s policies. This solution significantly speeds up approval processes by replacing all manual or email requests with a single system. With Concur Request, managers can also review and approve travel requests on the go via their mobile devices.
The travel planning process is directly linked to business travel agencies’ software through the integration of Concur Request. This allows employees to plan complex trips in advance and the travel agency to optimize them. The booked itinerary is then always available on the employee’s mobile device.
All planned and actual expenses can be easily monitored when combined with Concur® Expense, which quickly identifies any discrepancies by comparing the data in the travel request against invoices and credit card charges.
