Concur and Uber strike ground-breaking agreement
Travel expense specialist Concur and online transportation network company Uber have signed a unique partnership agreement.
The deal will see Concur users make savings on their Uber journeys and gain greater insight into usage patterns.
Users will also have free exclusive access to the Uber for Business features, plus additional tools such as automated employee onboarding and summary dashboards.
Elena Donio, President of Concur, says the company had witnessed a 230% growth in Uber transactions in the last 12 months and the new deal aims to accelerate that.
“Our average enterprise customer expenses almost $1 million in ground transportation annually and about 7 percent of that is with Uber today. By shifting more spend to Uber, these companies stand to save hundreds of thousands of dollars,” she said.
The partnership aims to help organisations reduce costs by streamlining ground transportation charges by enabling users to easily use ridesharing options, such as uberX.
New tools to take advantage of the agreement will be integrated into Concur’s software towards the end of this year.
When in place, all business trips with Uber will be sent automatically to Concur and provide savings insights, policy controls and the ability to generate expense reports that aim to improve productivity and satisfaction.
“We are excited to build towards the future of business travel management in partnership with SAP/Concur and to continue to revolutionise the ways people move,” said Emil Michael, Chief Business Officer, Uber.
“This strategic partnership will offer enterprise clients seamless access and enhanced reporting for Uber for Business through Concur, providing companies an innovative travel solution that offers unprecedented control, visibility and cost savings in global ground travel.”
