Concur yesterday introduced the Concur App Center—a marketplace for Concur clients and their employees, at Fusion, its client and partner conference. The new App Center will help businesses and their travelers discover applications that deliver significant value to the enterprise as well as to their business travelers. Through the Concur App Center, web and mobile software developers can list applications (apps) that are integrated using Concur’s open platform.
Through the new app center, business travelers and clients can find and evaluate applications that interact seamlessly with Concur. Examples include:
Apps for my Company: Clients can uncover turnkey solutions like those from CIBT which will automatically alert travelers if they require a Visa based on their travel plans. The Cegedim app will offer integration from Concur solutions with their global OneKey physician database to help ensure compliance with international regulations for the Life Sciences industry.
Apps for Me: Users can link their Concur accounts with e-receipt providers and to apps they already love like TripIt. Additionally, through Concur Open Booking users will be able to link their accounts with travel suppliers like Avis so reservations made on Avis.com flow automatically into Concur and TripItPro.
Beginning today, Concur clients will have access to partner applications in the Concur App Center. The latest partnerships include: Compliance Solutions apps; Finance/IT apps, including Ping Identity (which we reported on yesterday) for SSO and User Provisioning; and Traveler Services Apps to help business travelers stay on top of their travel needs.
