Concur TripLink helps companies capture travel itineraries, even if their travelers need to make reservations outside of Concur Travel. It connects trips, travelers and itineraries across multiple channels, allowing companies to apply policy and ensure traveler safety by making it easier to quickly locate and communicate with employees in the event of an issue or emergency.
We recently added an exciting new supplier to our network. Concur TripLink customers can now connect their SAP Concur account with American Airlines using the American Airlines App Center listing or by enrolling their AAdvantage number in SAP Concur’s My Travel Network.
SAP Concur is connecting more than 400,000 AAdvantage accounts with SAP Concur via TripLink, allowing travel managers to capture the data of users who make reservations on AA.com. Travelers will also have their booking data sent directly to Concur Travel and Expense, the Concur mobile app, and TripIt Pro. Bookings automatically appear in a traveler’s SAP Concur account without a need to email anything, providing immediate visibility into traveler spend and monitoring for policy rules, if applicable.
According to new GBTA Foundation research, travel managers continue to struggle to capture bookings made outside of corporate channels. Concur TripLink ensures travel managers can realize the benefits of their managed travel program, even if their travelers make reservations with America Airlines outside of Concur Travel. TripLink automatically captures those bookings, enabling immediate visibility into traveler spend, application of policy, and robust duty of care. TripLink also helps increase traveler productivity and satisfaction with access to TripIt Pro for all travelers.
“We’re excited to provide more flexibility for travelers and give companies greater visibility into travel plans and spend.” said Alison Taylor, SVP Global Sales at American Airlines.
For TripLink customers who do not already have a corporate program with American Airlines in place, American is offering a signup bonus of 650 Business Extra points – enough for a one-way upgrade – for companies who sign up for the American Airlines Business Extra program by December 31.
