Today, we’re pleased to announce a new Amazon Business Integration for Concur Expense. Available for free via the SAP Concur App Center, the integration reduces the time and effort required for employees to create expense reports from Amazon Business purchases and increases the accuracy of data captured on purchases. Amazon Business purchases will automatically appear in an employee’s available expenses in Concur Expense, eliminating the hassle of uploading receipts or tracking down receipts for multiple transactions.
“The creation of an expense report is not a key performance indicator for most companies. Rather, the goal is to enable employees to spend the company’s money wisely, and to settle those employee purchases as efficiently as possible,” said A.G. Lambert, chief product strategy officer, SAP Concur Solution Area. “With the Amazon Business Integration for Concur Expense, companies can streamline this process for their employees, saving time while reducing errors and improving compliance with company policies.”
SAP believes that organizations of all sizes should be able to manage employee-initiated discretionary spend, while reducing risk, saving money, and helping ensure compliance – all without sacrificing employee productivity and satisfaction. This belief guides innovation of SAP Concur solutions and integrations we make available to customers through our partner ecosystem.
Early adopter customers are already seeing benefits from the new integration:
