None of my company's employees book travel through Concur Travel. Rather, they make reservations on their own and attach receipts to their expense reports. Is there a problem with this? What is the benefit of encouraging or requiring users to book through Concur Travel? Does Concur track any possible credits and unused tickets? Are there any extra fees (or discounts) with using Concur travel instead of booking directly through an airline and hotel site?
Using SAP Concur Travel to make reservations offers numerous benefits that enhance the overall travel experience. You can use travel policies to ensure that bookings comply with your guidelines. Through negotiated rates, discounts, and preferred supplier agreements, you can optimize travel spend.
Concur Travel can be integrated with Concur Expense which allows travel bookings to be automatically populated into expense reports, reducing manual work, improving consistency, and helps in streamlining your reimbursement process. You can also make use of Concur Travel reports to gain insights into your spend, and identify areas for improvements.
Travelers can also make use of our Concur Mobile App to manage their bookings and make changes on the go. We also have TripIt app which provides real time updates and notifications for flight delays, gate changes and other important travel notification.
By using SAP Concur Travel for reservations, organizations can enhance efficiency, control costs, enforce policy compliance, and improve the overall travel experience for all travelers.
Concur Travel doesn't track credits or unused tickets, however this data can be sent to Concur by Administrators where we can store this information in the User's profile in Concur Travel and share it with TMC's when reservations are created.
Concur Travel doesn't provide any discounts and there is no extra fees charged,
Can you provide more clarification on:
"Concur Travel doesn't track credits or unused tickets, however this data can be sent to Concur by Administrators where we can store this information in the User's profile in Concur Travel and share it with TMC's when reservations are created."
Would concur travel enable us to see tickets booked that were unused? Flights, hotels, rental cars?
Every ticket created on SAP Concur Travel can be viewed through the Trip Library feature. Credits or Unused tickets are applied for flight tickets and SAP Concur travel doesn't track these tickets. Company Administrators has the ability to update the unused tickets information for every traveler in SAP Concur travel, for the Users this information will be readonly in their profile.
so many benefits and reasons to encourage, promote and require use of the managed processes outlined within the policy.
I am not able to find clear instructions to book a air tickets.
