London, February 6, 2008 – Concur (Nasdaq: CNQR), the world's leading provider of on-demand Employee Spend Management services, today announced the opening of its Frankfurt, Paris and Brussels offices, which continue to demonstrate Concur’s focus on Europe and specifically on the important French and German speaking markets. Concur’s new offices will allow a greater reach across both Western and Central Europe including Austria, Benelux, France, Germany and Switzerland.
Concur chose to open its offices in Frankfurt, Paris and Brussels due to the location of each city and their proximity to the business's customers and partners, enabling Concur to focus on these thriving markets at a local level and provide in-person support to its growing band of reseller and co-sell partners across Europe. All three offices will focus on delivering products and services that are tailored to Concur’s partners and customers, and also service the wider area of Central and Western Europe. With a number of clients local to these new regions already using Concur’s services – including Advanced Medical Optics, Gilead Sciences, Agilent Technologies and IMS Health Inc – Concur continues to address growing demand for its services.
“Concur is a truly global company, with the only completely integrated, end-to-end travel and expense management service that serves the global needs of our clients both in Europe and abroad” said Rajeev Singh, president and COO of Concur. “We’re seeing rapidly increasing demand within Germany, France and the Benelux region – as well as throughout Europe – and we’re responding to the needs of our clients and partners with the opening of our three new offices to augment the presence we’ve already established in the UK and most recently in the Czech Republic. More and more organisations are choosing Concur’s on-demand travel and expense management services because of our experience in this region, our strong track record for delivering world-class service, our innovative and market-leading functionality and our ability to deliver unmatched travel content inventory.“
The opening of these offices positions Concur to continue to meet the growing demand in a vibrant European market and expand local partnerships while also continuing to meet the demands of its diverse European client base through world-class support, unmatched global functionality and relentless innovation.
