SNCF certification, market-leading innovation and expanded European presence among topics discussed at company’s largest ever gathering of European clients
London, UK, June 19, 2008 – Concur (Nasdaq: CNQR) the world’s leading provider of on-demand business services that automate Employee Spend Management, today kicked off its largest ever European User Conference in London. More than 200 Concur clients, partners and product experts are in attendance, sharing best practices in travel and expense management and learning about the tremendous innovation that’s driving Concur’s continued rapid growth in Europe.
Highlights of Concur’s recent success in delivering innovation to European clients include:
• SNCF Certification – With Concur now officially certified by SNCF, Concur clients have access to the widest selection of rail content available through a single booking tool, including Deutsche Bahn, EuroStar, Evolvi and SNCF.
• Concur® Travel & Expense Innovation – Released earlier this year to help European clients seamlessly unite travel booking and expense claim processing, this powerful on-demand service now leverages traveller itineraries to automatically calculate even the most complex travel allowances. This exclusive Concur innovation relieves business travellers from the burden of understanding the complexities of travel allowances, while helping businesses ensure that travel expenses are appropriate and compliant with both corporate and country-specific policies and regulations.
• Continued Expansion in Europe – In addition to offices in London, Frankfurt and Prague, Concur recently opened an office in Paris, providing a presence to serve clients and partners throughout the UK and Europe.
