Concur is an SAP Company

Mine Safety Appliances

Expense costs reduced by $250,000 in six months.

Mine Safety Appliances has a dynamic North American sales force traveling to 140 countries on five continents. But, a paper-based expense reporting system did not support the company’s commitment to transparency, agility, or innovation, and manual expense report processes provided limited insight into travel and expenses. With substantial growth in sales over the last few years, more than $15M in global travel spending, and nearly 1,000 expense reports to process monthly in North America alone, Mine Safety Appliance's financial and sales managers needed a system that would substantially enhance compliance and enable a detailed view of company travel spending. A powerful and secure combination of Concur products was the answer, providing a secure, automated, integrated and mobile solution that lets employees capture receipts instantly and submit expense reports anytime from anywhere.

Why Mine Safety Appliances Prefers Concur:

  • T&E expense related costs decreased by $250,000 in less than six months.  Employees spend 75% less time completing expense reports.
  • Internal expense reimbursement schedules have been cut from weeks to days.
  • Receipts captured with Concur® for Mobile appear online within 30 seconds.
  • Automation and integration provide unprecedented insight into travel spending.

“Concur supports our company’s core values … We insist on a partner who shares our commitment to products and services that reflect innovation, speed and agility, impeccable service to our customers, and—above all—integrity.”
