Concur Showcases Commitment To Helping Colleges And Universities Drive Down The Costs Of Travel And Expense Management

REDMOND, Wash., Oct. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, at the Society for Collegiate Travel and Expense Management Conference, Concur (Nasdaq: CNQR) announced that the company continues to see success addressing the travel and expense management needs of the higher education community through innovative product offerings,  strategic partnerships, direct sales distribution and participation in industry associations and events. Concur, a leading provider of integrated travel and expense management (T&E) services, is trusted by key industry leaders to help streamline and automate travel and expense management for colleges and universities within the U.S. and abroad.

Now, through an alliance partnership with Huron Consulting Group – a leading provider of business consulting services – premier research universities, academic medical centers, and colleges and universities of all sizes around the nation have access to the combination of Concur's innovation coupled with Huron Education's expertise in addressing the specific needs of technology implementation and business process transformation within a higher education environment.  This alliance provides a positive boost to prospective colleges and universities looking to implement Concur through a pre-implementation consulting package and other services from Huron Education.

"The technology of Concur and services from Huron Education has elevated our travel and expense program here at Notre Dame," said Paul VanDieren, Assistant Controller  at The University of Notre Dame. "Prior to automation with Concur, gaining visibility into travel and expense spending was difficult and required a manual effort. Now, that critical data is readily available."

"The higher education community has unique needs when it comes to integrating travel and expense management within their operation," said Rob Cavanaugh, executive vice president for Concur. "From building an internal business case for automation, to preparing for the implementation of a solution, to expediting and ensuring a smooth transition and implementation process – working with the right partner is key. Combining industry-leading innovation and unmatched consulting expertise, our alliance with Huron Education is a great win for higher education institutions."

Concur's best-in-class solutions simplify and automate travel and expense management and provide visibility into T&E spend for colleges and universities. With an intuitive user-experience, the company's cloud-based services deliver robust reporting and increased policy compliance. T&E expense management is streamlined with customized reports detailing pre-trip approvals and a configurable system to meet the needs of each institution.
