IDC MarketScape Recognizes SAP as a Leader in T&E Management Software for Enterprise and Midmarket
We are excited to announce that SAP has maintained its position in the Leaders Category in the enterprise and midmarket 2022–2023 IDC MarketScape for worldwide software-as-a-service (SaaS) and cloud-enabled Travel and Expense Applications market.
These recurring IDC MarketScape assessments evaluate vendors in the travel and expense (T&E) management software, with particular focus on expense management offerings and their integration with travel management services and networks. They serve as informative, valuable resources for enterprise and midmarket companies that outline key criteria to help guide their selection of corporate travel booking solutions.
Recent years have proven challenging for the corporate travel industry. As we all know, the COVID-19 pandemic created an urgent need for solutions to help protect business travelers’ health and well-being with enhanced duty of care, flexibility, and visibility. The most successful T&E offerings ensured that companies and their business travelers felt immensely supported during this moment of change, so they could return to travel with confidence.
"More businesses took the opportunity to add new features to control travel spend or provide more duty of care-related functionality and controls,” said Kevin Permenter, research director, Financial Applications at IDC. “This was an especially powerful differentiator for software vendors with preexisting ties to new emerging areas within corporate travel booking such as auditing, sustainability, virtual cards, and duty of care.”
Also, as economic uncertainty continues into 2023, companies have another host of requirements to conduct business efficiently and effectively. The solutions in this category are poised to equip companies with what they need, and SAP Concur is proud to be among them.
SAP Concur solutions—including Concur Travel, Concur Expense, and Concur Invoice—integrate T&E processes and provide a unified view into travel bookings and spending data, all in one place. According to the IDC MarketScape, strengths of these offerings include:
