A corporate travel and expense management solutions provider has struck a partnership with ERP software company VAI, according to an announcement on Wednesday (Aug. 29).
VAI will now link corporate customers to SAP Concur solutions, including Concur Expense, Concur Invoice and Concur Travel. A cloud-based application will be integrated with VAI’s existing S2K Enterprise platform, which supports data integration and visibility into company expenses. SAP Concur’s solutions include accounts payable, expense management, invoice automation, travel booking, mileage tracking and other tools.
The platform can be accessed via mobile device, VAI said, providing travelers and their managers with real-time data visibility. The ERP firm said it intends to link business customers to a solution that can reduce manual data entry and processes.
“Many of our customers were asking for an integrated expense tracking tool within S2K, and SAP Concur was a clear choice for us, as they are a proven leader in their field,” said VAI Director of Business Development Maggie Kelleher in a statement. “Together, VAI and SAP Concur are enabling a more modern, digital work environment that optimizes processes and will ultimately save our customers time and money.”
“The new VAI and SAP Concur partnership offers solutions that transform what used to be mundane, time-consuming manual tasks into quick, easy and accurate work processes by simplifying complicated expense management systems,” said SAP Concur Partner Business Manager Tony Hagen in another statement. “Our customers are able to save countless hours that would have been wasted tracking expenses manually and sorting through piles of paperwork. Customers have also benefitted from regained control of monitoring and enforcing compliance for spending policies.”
Earlier this month, SAP Concur said it secured a contract with the U.S. Department of Defense to digitize its travel and expense management processes in a $9.3 million deal.
