Citi’s corporate cards unit is launching a suite of global, enhanced travel reports via Concur’s TravelTrax platform through its agreement with Concur, a provider of spend management solutions and services.
Under the arrangement, the two partners will offer mutual clients a set of consolidated, global reports delivered by Concur that comprise the client’s Citi, Concur, and travel agency data.
Subscribed clients will be able to access card issuer, expense management provider, and travel management agency data, where clients can authorise Concur to receive the data, consolidated into a set of easy-to-read dashboards and drill-down enabled reports.
Citi said that organisations will gain a more holistic view into their overall travel programme activities for improved analysis of their travel programme’s purchase behaviour, spend patterns and overall performance.
“These enhanced travel reports will not only provide efficiencies for our customers by automating current manual processes, but also enable clients to make key travel programme decisions more quickly and with more confidence,” said Manish Kohli, Citi’s global head of commercial cards.
