Concur, IBM form strategic alliance


IBM has forged a strategic alliance with Concur to jointly market the company’s integrated travel and expense management solutions globally.

Under the terms of the agreement, IBM will actively promote Concur's cloud-based expense management solutions to IBM Global Expense Reporting Solutions clients. The IBM clients will continue to receive the expertise and support of the Global Process Service and Business Process Outsourcing operations while migrating to Concur’s travel and expense management platform.

"IBM and Concur are pioneers in delivering world-class solutions and together we serve the largest companies in the world.  For 20 years, Concur has defined the market for automated expense management and reporting with a full complement of solutions that help companies and their employees with travel services, booking, expense reimbursement, spend management and invoice processing,” said Concur EVP Corporate Strategy John Torrey.

“We are thrilled to enter into this alliance with IBM to help their customers experience the same benefits as Concur’s 20,000 current customers and the 25 million travelers they represent.”

IBM Global Practice Leader of Global Process Services Sandy Khanna said IBM will continue to provide T&E back office services to clients who procure expense services and solutions from Concur as part of IBM’s broad portfolio of business process solutions.

“As the leader in providing an open platform that offers end to end integrated travel management, Concur is the logical partner for IBM to deliver continued innovation in T&E services to our clients.

“We are currently seeing a fundamental shift in the T&E market toward end-to-end integrated travel management and Concur offers the leading solution for transforming the efficiency and effectiveness of the T&E process.”
