Modern travel and expense is about capturing all your spend so you can manage your costs, whilst giving choice to your travellers.

Sven Ringling from iProCon Ltd will present Integrating Concur - with SAP and with the World.

This session is focussing on the integration capabilities of Concur:

  • The new “native” Integration with SAP FI and SAP HCM: capabilities, limitations, demo, lessons from the trenches
  • Alternative options for SAP integration
  • The Concur App centre: demos, tips from users, pitfalls and benefits

The new native integration is what many SAP customers have been waiting for to start their transition to Concur, so this is the first focus of the session. Sven will go through the integration add-on in some detail sharing experience from the Early Adopter program and first customer projects. Sven will discuss capabilities and current limitations, best practice, pitfalls and, of course, a live demo.

You will then be able to have a brief look at alternative SAP interface options and discuss, when to use them and – more importantly - when not to use them.

The second part of the session, also including demos, is looking at the wide range of 3rd party apps and services you can integrate with Concur to achieve an unprecedented level of automation and user experience – including, but not limited to e-receipts, VAT recovery, expense re-billing,...

Hear it from the horse’s (i.e. frequent traveller’s) mouth what works well, what doesn’t and what you need to watch out for to maximise business benefit.
