New Business Travel Economy: Uber, Airbnb & Concur

What do Airbnb, Uber, United and other brands have in common? If you said: “Concur,” you’d be spot on. All these services, along with companies like IHG, World Travel Service, Avis and more, are now integrated with Concur to make business travel and expense easier than ever. And the glue that connects everything together is the Concur Platform.

Mithun blog icons Business travel is a lucrative industry worth $1.12T, and the Concur Platform helps companies of all sizes tap into this massive opportunity.We’re right off the heels of one of the largest business travel conferences, the GBTA Convention 2014, where we announced new platform partnerships with Airbnb and Uber, among others. Our mission at Concur is pretty simple, “Create The Perfect Trip” for business travelers. “The Perfect Trip” comes in many shapes and sizes to suit the needs of our 25M customers spread across 20,000 enterprises, including 70 of the Fortune 100 companies.

We’re committed to making business travel as effortless and painless as possible.
