New program enables partners to deliver more value to government and education organizations.
Today, SAP Concur is excited to announce the launch of its new U.S. Public Sector Resell program, allowing government and education organizations to tap into its trusted network of preferred partners. This introductory program underscores SAP Concur’s commitment to its customers and partner network and is part of a larger initiative at SAP Concur designed to drive growth for resellers who can accelerate the automation of travel and spend management capabilities globally. To date, two leading resellers have signed on to join the program, including Meridian Partners and LSI.
“The U.S. Public Sector Resell program strengthens SAP Concur’s ability to better serve public sector organizations as they work to modernize their technology investments,” said David Ballard, senior vice president, public sector, SAP Concur. “These regional resellers also have a deep understanding of the unique public sector requirements, especially in the state, local and higher education market, so organizations are able to turn to established, trusted advisors as they evaluate technology purchases and make these advancements.”
As the public sector continues to modernize its technical and financial systems, state and local government organizations spent a reported $107.6 billion on IT in 2019, and data from the U.S. Office of Management and Budget shows the federal government spent more than $88 billion on IT.
“Every year, government is given a longer task list without a budget to match,” said Wil Martinez, managing partner, Meridian Partners. “Through our partnership with SAP Concur, Meridian helps government agencies effectively automate their travel and spend management systems, reducing fraud, waste and abuse, which leads to operational efficiencies and cost savings.”
Concur Travel, Expense, and Invoice are the leading cloud solutions to help manage public sector spend, increase visibility and drive operational efficiencies. As SAP Concur’s public sector business continues to grow, additional reseller partners will be added to the program over the next year, further expanding the company’s ability to help transform government spend management within public sector organizations.
