App integration simplifies mobile payment and expense reporting for the #1 most commonly expensed restaurant chain and #1 business meeting destination.
Bellevue, WASH., February 19, 2015 – Concur, the world’s leading provider of spend management solutions and services has published an e-receipt solution in the Concur App Center for business travelers making purchases at Starbucks.
Transaction data from over 27 million Concur users shows Starbucks is the most commonly expensed restaurant and the top location for out-of-office business meetings. While more than one-third of all Starbucks transactions are now made with a Starbucks Card, including those using Starbucks mobile apps, Concur users were previously unable to easily earn My Starbucks Rewards™ Stars for business-related purchases. Thanks to this new collaboration, users can now have their receipts automatically sent to Concur’s expense reporting system while earning Stars towards free food or beverage items, providing a combination of convenience and Rewards.
“Our data shows Concur users hold more than 10,000 meetings a month at Starbucks,” said Barry Padgett, Chief Product Officer at Concur. “This feature allows them to take advantage of easy expensing while paying at Starbucks, plus they’ll see their transactions appear in Concur mobile in near real time. Another great example of how Concur’s App Center ecosystem delivers the best of the new digital economy to business travelers.”
Launched in April 2013, the Concur App Center is accessible from inside Concur’s cloud solution. Through the Concur developer platform, partners can build intelligent solutions delivering value and cost savings to over 30,000 companies and create seamless travel experiences for the over 27 million users of Concur.
Concur, a part of SAP, is the leading provider of spend management solutions and services in the world, helping companies of all sizes transform the way they manage spend so they can focus on what matters most. Through Concur’s open platform, the entire travel and expense ecosystem of customers, suppliers, and developers can access and extend Concur’s T&E cloud.
