In many cases, employees are booking directly with suppliers for good reason: many travelers believe that they can save the company money and/or feel it's more convenient and cost effective to book directly with the supplier. Leveraging the power of the Concur T&E Cloud, organizations embracing an "open" model can take the next step in managed travel and offer travelers greater freedom, flexibility and cost savings while still maintaining control and visibility into travel spend.
Companies can now bring the advantages of a "managed" program to virtually any booking, no matter where it occurs and bring all travel transaction data back into Concur via Concur's T&E Cloud-powered suppliers. The result is an integrated travel and expense process that takes managed travel to the next level – even if the travel isn't booked from within Concur Travel. Regardless of whether a company's program is managed, unmanaged, or a combination, Concur continues to innovate on behalf of the entire eco-system, delivering an integrated travel and expense process for individuals and companies of all sizes.
