Concur App Center brings connected apps to more than 20m users

Concur, the leading provider of integrated travel and expense management solutions, unveiled today the Concur App Center, - a new marketplace for Concur clients and their employees, at Fusion, its premier client and partner conference. The new App Center will help businesses and their travelers discover applications that deliver significant value to the enterprise as well as to their business travelers. Through the Concur App Center, web and mobile software developers can list applications (apps) that are integrated using Concur’s open platform.

Through the new app center, business travelers and clients can find and evaluate applications that interact seamlessly with Concur. Examples include:

Apps for my Company: Clients can uncover turnkey solutions like those from CIBT which will automatically alert travelers if they require a Visa based on their travel plans. The Cegedim app will offer integration from Concur solutions with their global OneKey physician database to help ensure compliance with international regulations for the Life Sciences industry.

Apps for Me: Users can link their Concur accounts with e-receipt providers and to apps they already love like TripIt. Additionally, through Concur Open Booking users will be able to link their accounts with travel suppliers like Avis so reservations made on flow automatically into Concur and TripItPro.

“Through the Concur T&E Cloud, our entire community can access and share information resulting in a better way to travel and to manage expenses,” said Tim MacDonald, EVP of Platform and Data Services at Concur. “The uptake of partner solutions from our client community exceeds our expectations. We’re thrilled with the platform adoption we’re seeing from customers, suppliers, partners and developers. More than 30 highly relevant partners already have their apps listed for our clients and their employees – a great start for what’s to come.”
