ExpenseIt Pro and partner apps

When business travelers are on the road, SAP Concur solutions make expense reporting easy with ExpenseIt, part of the SAP Concur mobile app. With this innovative feature, travelers simply use their smartphone camera to capture and upload an image of a receipt.

Concur Expense ensures all of the details—including the amount, date of the transaction, vendor, expense type and location—are accurately captured and matched to the expense entry.

Employees can further extend the value of their SAP Concur solution and simplify expense reporting by connecting to our ecosystem of partner apps. Accurate expenses from partners are automatically created in Concur Expense, complete with e-receipts.


Concur Expense

When you need to capture spend at the source and gain visibility down to each detailed transaction, look no further than Concur Expense. By integrating travel and expense in a single solution, Concur Travel & Expense, employees can go from trip to expense report with one click.

Plus, our smart matching technology practically writes the report for the employee, combining credit card, booked travel, and e-receipts all while using built-in audit rules that instantly highlight any exceptions and give finance leaders a unified view of travel and expense spend.

Taking advantage of hotel e-receipts means employees don’t have to stop at the front desk for a copy, and their expenses will be automatically itemized. The system also notifies employees of incomplete entries to ensure thorough, accurate, and complete expense reporting every time.

The intuitive interface makes it simple to manually add expenses and the solution even provides a mileage calculator for estimating mileage reimbursement. Once an expense report is submitted, Concur Expense allows employees to visually track the status as it moves through the approval workflow.

Employees can also use the SAP Concur mobile app to view expenses, add them to a report, and submit that report, wherever they are, whenever they want. Managers can then take advantage of the app to expedite expense review and approval on the go.



Track the metrics that matter with easy-to-use dashboards that deliver a clear look at what’s being spent and where and offer a holistic and simple way to track travel KPIs.

With a unified view of your SAP Concur data, you can empower key stakeholders with the information they need to understand and impact the bottom line. With Analytics you and your stakeholders can see data in near real time to drive actionable insights and manage spend proactively with alerts and reports delivered directly to inboxes.


Financial connectors

As an added benefit, SAP Concur financial connectors work with your ERP, CRM, human resources, and accounting systems to give you a unified view of all your data. Whether using an SAP Concur-built integration like ADP, NetSuite, QuickBooks, or Salesforce, or leveraging our partners to connect to other systems, SAP Concur solutions give your team a timely, accurate, and complete financial picture. We also offer a direct native integration with SAP solutions.
