SAP Concur and Terra Dotta Partnership Provides Higher Education Institutions with Accurate Traveler Data for Duty of Care

BELLEVUE, Wash., March 14, 2018 – Terra Dotta the leader in higher education travel, study abroad, and international program management solutions, and SAP Concur®, the world’s leading provider of expense, travel, and invoice management solutions, today announces a new partnership. Through this partnership, university and college administrators will have even greater capabilities to monitor and provide assistance to faculty, staff and students for duty-of-care compliance.

On any given day, staff, faculty, and students of higher education institutions are dispersed around town, across the country, and around the world. This begs the question – what if something happened? What if a member of the faculty got sick while traveling? What if a student was studying abroad in a location in the path of a hurricane? And most importantly, is the traveler’s data accurate if you needed to reach them to offer assistance? Through this partnership joint customers of Terra Dotta and SAP Concur have access to a more holistic view of where their students and faculty are located at any given time.

“Higher education administrators take their legal and moral responsibility to always ensure the safety and security of their faculty, staff, and students very seriously,” stated Doug Anderson, SVP Travel Product Strategy, SAP Concur. “Legacy solutions require travel and contact information to be entered into the two separate systems, and administrators need to consolidate and monitor data with different tools – a process that can be error-prone and inefficient. Our new solution provides administrators with peace of mind knowing they have accurate data when they need it.”

“As Terra Dotta continues to grow our partner ecosystem, we are pleased to be able to connect with Concur,” declared Brendan Haggerty, Chief Technology Officer, Terra Dotta. “The ability to streamline the process of transferring location and contact data without having to create separate travel profiles will be beneficial to our joint customer base.”

The integration will be made available to clients via the SAP Concur App Center and more information regarding functionality and dates for general availability will be coming soon.
