If your company is one of the 30,000 worldwide that uses Concur, rest assured that the Android application is the perfect means to make sure you can make travel arrangements and record your expenses.

Rather than stuffing and sorting piles of crumpled receipts, Concur allows you to enter in details of charges, edit expenses and take snapshots of your receipts as you incur expenses. You can even use the app offline; for example you could manage your expenses during a flight without the hassle of attempting a receipt shuffle as your plane touches down. It’s as simple as:

  1. Record an expense entry
  2. Use the PRIV’s camera to take a photo of your receipt (if necessary)
  3. Submit your expense report
  4. Enable your manager to review and approve your expense report quickly
  5. Track your expense report through reimbursement

Of course before you can manage your money on the road, you have to get there in the first place. Concur manages your itinerary, too, thanks to complete integration with Concur’s TripIt travel solution. With TripIt, employees can view lodging availability, consumer ratings, distance and price and even book accommodations, flights and rental cars. Users can also receive real-time flight alerts and find alternate flights if needed.

Concur offers a better way for employees to manage the financial aspect of traveling, and it provides employers with a better picture of the financial investment of travel expenses.

With so much financial data transferred to and from the mobile device, it’s reassuring to know that Concur provides the best security available for corporate data through ISO 27001, SOC 1 / SSAE16 and PCI certifications and audits. Private data is further secured with the world-renowned security that BlackBerry has long committed to deliver to customers.

With Concur on the PRIV, your data isn’t going anywhere you don’t want it to, while you or your employees travel the globe, staying productive and organized on the go.
