It's no secret that Concur is a household name when it comes to corporate travel management. While Concur has served well for traditional business travel, it's time to consider a more modern and efficient solution, particularly for team offsites, incentive trips, and meetings.
Why Concur Isn’t Cutting It for Event Travel
Since Concur was launched in 1993, its user interface and features have not evolved. Its clunky interface can be frustrating and time-consuming to navigate, and it lacks essential features for managing group travel in the 21st century.
Here are a few of the limitations of Concur for event travel:
- Limited guest travel: Concur only allows booking for one passenger per reservation, making it difficult to manage group travel with guests
- No discounted fares: Concur depends on publicly accessible fares from Sabre, causing companies to overlook potential savings that could arise from group contracts
- Non-transferable eCredits for canceled tickets: With Concur, canceled tickets result in non-transferable eCredits, which can be a hassle to use
- Outdated user interface: The user interface of Concur is outdated and not conducive to user-friendliness, creating challenges for travelers to swiftly and efficiently book their trips.
- Lack of event-level policy enforcement: Concur’s global policy lacks the granular controls needed for managing event-specific travel requirements
- Reimbursement nightmare: Concur's reimbursement process can be a daunting task for finance departments, involving the management of dozens or even hundreds of individual invoices.
