New SAP Concur Partnership Aims to Bring More Benefits to Travel Managers and Their Travelers Through Concur TripLink
We are pleased to announce Aeromexico will join the Concur TripLink ecosystem of suppliers, giving corporate customers the ability to bring direct supplier bookings back into SAP Concur solutions. Travel managers will gain additional visibility, improve program controls and efficiencies with Aeromexico itineraries and bookings, whether they occur in the Concur Travel booking tool or directly with Aeromexico. Concur TripLink customers will have the added benefit of connecting their Aeromexico Club Premier account to their SAP Concur profile to earn rewards and exclusive offers.
Aeromexico is Mexico’s flagship airline and leader in Latin American aviation with Mexico City International Airport as their main hub. They provide customers with an extensive destination network featuring the United States, Canada, Central America, South America, Asia, and Europe. Aeromexico is also a founding member of the SkyTeam airline alliance, which serves 170 countries with its 19 SkyTeam airline partners. With Aeromexico’s partnership, SAP Concur customers will have access to more content and capacity to meet the growing demand for both domestic and international markets. Aeromexico started the current year with 122 aircraft, reaching 133 in May and plans to add 14 aircraft to reach 147 by the end of the year. With the growth of its fleet and adjustments to its connectivity network, it currently operates 88 routes: 45 domestic and 43 international. Aeromexico's total international capacity increased by 93.9% compared to April 2021, while domestic capacity grew by 25.7% year over year.
Concur TripLink launched in 2013 as a travel solution designed to help travel managers and financial stakeholders gain a more complete view and better controls over their managed travel programs. The solution offers the ability to capture bookings where they happen, realize negotiated rates, and initiate efficient spend management. Today, Concur TripLink serves a growing set of suppliers, is used by over 14,000 companies, and supports more than 11 million business travelers. Concur TripLink is the tool travel administrators need to prepare and embrace the new era of business travel with access to flexible booking options without risk of non-compliance and invisible spend. Concur TripLink brings bookings made outside of traditional channels into a managed travel program through the SAP Concur global network of connected suppliers and offers travelers a complimentary TripIt Pro subscription.
With Concur TripLink, companies can apply their policy to direct supplier spend, manage negotiated rates, maximize savings, reinforce duty of care, and provide connections to additional channels that align with a customer’s preferred booking methods. By expanding access to regional content and providing more shopping options, travelers have the flexibility to book direct, stay within policy and travel managers gain access to aggregate travel data to inform their managed travel programs.
Concur TripLink gives travelers the ability to align to policies and book directly with their company’s preferred air, hotel, car, and rail providers when necessary. Travelers experience the ease of expense reporting with automatic itinerary and e-receipts captured in Concur Travel and Concur Expense.
