Last week, Concur developers took part in the biggest hackathon event of the year: TechCrunch Disrupt Hackathon San Francisco. TechCrunch hosts hackathon events throughout the year, but more than 700 developers and 40 sponsors participated in TechCrunch Disrupt San Francisco, making it the place to be for inventing new apps and mash-ups.
During the 24-hour hackathon, a total of seven new apps were created using Concur APIs—each one combines great existing technologies to deliver new business travel and expense apps. Here are some of our favorites:
|Winner: Best Use of Concur API Evernote +Concur = BizMemBizMem won the “Best Use of Concur API” prize with a bot that pulls Concur Itinerary and Expense data and mashes it with your relevant Evernote content to generate a helpful note reminding you of everything you need to know about your trip. You can watch their demo onstage here and check out their screenshots + source code.|
|Pebble + Concur = Biz or Not Biz or Not is an app that lets you reimburse expenses right from your Pebble smartwatch. Check out their demo onstage here and see sample screenshots + source code.|
|Clover + Concur = Posie Posie is hack concept that uses pocket QR codes and Clover point-of-sales devices to help you file expenses to Concur, check-in to events and be social all from one app. Here’s a video of their demo and presentation onstage.|
Other ideas generated at the event include apps like “Carbon,” which uses Yodlee APIs to collect item-level data on credit card purchases in combination with real-time receipts. The “Carbon” concept improves the purchase experience by offering fraud prevention, item-by-item list per transaction and instant expense reporting.
