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.
Today, we’re excited to announce that Concur TripLink customers can now connect their SAP Concur account with Hyatt using the Hyatt App Center listing or by enrolling their World of Hyatt loyalty account in SAP Concur’s My Travel Network.
SAP Concur is connecting more than 120,000 World of Hyatt member accounts with SAP Concur via TripLink, allowing travel managers to capture the data of users who make reservations on Hyatt.com, or on the Hyatt iOS or Android mobile app. 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 travel policy rules, if applicable.
New GBTA Foundation research found that 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 Hyatt 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.
“Integrating with Concur TripLink makes it easier than ever for business travelers to book hotels directly with Hyatt while helping to ensure travel managers have the visibility they need,” said Gus Vonderheide, VP, Global Sales, Hyatt.
To date, more than 7.5 million travelers have access to Concur Triplink, and the global TripLink network includes 28 partners representing airlines, hotels, rail, and rental car providers. For more information about TripLink, visit Concur.com/TripLink.
