With ride-sharing on the rise, we’re excited to announce the expansion of our first-of-its-kind partnership and technology integration with Uber! Through our extended integration, your Concur-connected business will gain visibility into your company’s Uber usage while increasing traveler productivity and satisfaction. Here are three benefits of the expanded partnership for Concur customers:
1. Significant cost savings on Uber transportation
Our average enterprise customer expenses almost $1m in ground transportation per year, and 7% of that is with Uber. By shifting more spend to Uber, your business can realize hundreds of thousands in savings.
2. Increased traveler productivity and satisfaction
We’ve seen almost 230% growth in Uber transactions in the past year; we expect to see that growth accelerate as more and more business travelers utilize ride-sharing for cost- and time-savings.
3. Free access to Uber for Business
Concur customers will receive automated employee onboarding, policy controls, dashboards for managing spend, and more as a result of our partnership.
Together, Concur and Uber will be able to help companies reduce their ground transportation spend by enabling them to more easily use affordable ridesharing options like uberX. Look for our extended Uber product integration which will launch in Q4 of 2016 through the Concur App Center.
