Welcome Concur guest blogger, Matt Bray, Business Development Manager in EMEA:
I spend a lot of my time traveling across Europe talking about the benefits of an integrated self-booking tool and expense management system. I have my views on how they should be deployed and implemented, and have seen our customers doing it first hand, however nothing quite compares to actually rolling one out yourself! To that end, I’m pleased to say that at this year’s Business Travel & Meetings Show in London, I am sharing a stage with Geraldine Horkan whose company AMO has done just that.
Our talk on the first day of the show (Wednesday 10th February, 13.45-14:45) is dedicated to a discussion around the benefits of integrating travel booking with expense management, using AMO as a real case study. Above and beyond the technology challenges of this kind of deployment, the change management process involved is often complex. Expenses and travel booking touch on all areas of the business from HR right the way through to accounting and IT. All businesses are packed full of personalities and politics, and therefore the process needs to be managed well to ensure the business benefits are delivered.
Come along and join in what promises to be a fascinating discussion. For more information on the speaker sessions at the event, or the Business Travel & Meetings Show itself follow this link. Hope to see you there!
