Fiction.  SAP Concur isn't used to discourage employees from spending.  Rather, it is a tool for companies to track spending and therefore, implement better T&E policies.  It also provides a more streamlined way of reimbursing employees and freeing up time that was otherwise used by the persons who used to have to work the process manually.

Alright, I think I need to make my Fact or Fictions a little more difficult. 🙂

 

Those that replied were correct.

 

Here is my "official" answer:

Fiction: SAP Concur is travel and expense management software configured by each company to help employees spend money within company policies. If companies didn’t want employees spending money, they wouldn’t assign company credit cards.

Fiction! Concur is implemented to 1) help the employee by providing a user friendly way to submit expenses on the go. 2) help administration by process employees expenses faster as everything is provided on the report (receipts, notes, business purpose etc).

Fiction. Concur is a tool to enable companies to better track spending, ensure compliance to company policies, and to prevent fraud and waste. Also, Concur provides a means to acquire multiple approvals and track spending in Cognos Reporting. Everything is right there in the expense report. Nowhere to hide.
