Amadeus, a global technology and distribution partner to the travel industry, and Concur, a provider of on-demand travel and expense (T&E) management services, have integrated Amadeus eTravel Management (AeTM) with Concur’s expense solution.
With technology from Amadeus and Concur now tightly integrated, organisations have a tool that provides worldwide content, with an intuitive end-to-end travel booking and expense claim solution that helps improve control, drive compliance and increase productivity. With the synchronisation of travel bookings from AeTM into Concur, customers will have a full view of what was planned versus what was actually spent. The two companies are also delivering the integration of Amadeus core distribution technology into Concur’s own travel booking technology.
“Organisations have a universal need to establish visibility and control over T&E expenses,” said Chris Dwyer, research analyst at Aberdeen Group. “Technology solutions that address the entire continuum of the T&E process – such as those from Concur and Amadeus – enable organisations to rein in this significant area of controllable spending and more effectively monitor what’s really happening.”
