Concur Announces the Availability of Client Web Services as Part of the Concur Connect Platform

Company continues to deliver on open platform vision by enabling clients to more tightly integrate with and extend the value of their Concur services

Redmond, WA, Feb. 16, 2011 -- Concur (Nasdaq: CNQR), a leading provider of integrated travel and expense management services, today announced the availability of a new set of open APIs (application programming interfaces) using Web protocols that enable customers to seamlessly integrate with and extend the capabilities of Concur’s products and services. These newest components of the Concur Connect Platform – an open, standards-based framework that allows customers, partners, and third party developers to connect to and extend Concur’s travel and expense management data and capabilities – enable clients to develop additional functionality to meet their organization’s specific travel and expense management needs.

“With a long history of developing interfaces to a wide variety of systems, Concur is uniquely positioned to deliver an open platform that connects virtually every member of the corporate travel and expense eco-system,” said Rajeev Singh, president and COO of Concur. “More and more of our clients are interested in complementing and extending the services we offer by leveraging the Web services that we’ve developed. The Concur Connect Platform makes connectivity, integration, and extensibility easy by enabling any company to bring a new level of flexibility into their IT environment.”

The Concur Connect Platform gives clients additional options for real-time integration of data elements used by multiple internal systems – such as project or department codes – as well as financial data. Examples of how Concur’s Web services can be leveraged include clients who wish to display an individual’s outstanding expense actions within their intranet portal experience or those needing the ability to submit and view receipt images that are captured by Concur’s solution from within their own internal systems.

Based on a set of open, cloud-based APIs and tools, the Concur Connect Platform enables customers, partners, and third party developers to connect to and extend Concur’s technology solutions with a diverse set of applications and services. The applications and services integrated to Concur solutions are available through traditional Web and mobile interfaces.

Concur will demonstrate the new capabilities as part of its premier client conference, Fusion, taking place Feb. 15-18 in Las Vegas, NV. The opening day Fusion keynote, featuring Concur executives, will be webcast live. To register, please visit: http://hosted.mediasite.com/mediasite/Catalog/catalogs/ConcurFusion2011.....
