Concur to speak at Association of Corporate Travel Executives (ACTE), Helsinki on 25th September 2008
London, Finland, September 25, 2008 - Concur (NASDAQ: CNQR), the world's leading provider of on-demand Employee Spend Management services, will be speaking at the Nordic Executive Forum in Helsinki on 25th September 2008. The forum is the joint effort of the ACTE and the Finnish Business Travel Association. Chris Juneau, EMEA Product Marketing Director for Concur, will be participating in a panel discussion on 'Supplier Perspectives to Make a Travel Programme Work'. This will take place in the Hilton Helsinki Kalastajatorppa Kalastajatorpantie on Thursday 25th September 2008 (11:00 – 12:30 EEST/GMT +2).
This panel discussion will consider the importance of external communications to drive an effective travel management program. Perspectives from travel management companies, airlines, expense management solution providers, corporate card providers and hotels will all be represented to discuss what each requires from a corporate travel manager in order to deliver results as part of the corporate travel programme.
As part of this discussion Mr. Juneau will discuss how companies are achieving their objectives for control, compliance and visibility within their travel programmes by treating travel booking and expense reimbursement as one seamless end-to-end process.
“The Nordic Executive Forum is a gathering of forward-thinking, technology-driven companies, whose needs are a natural fit for Concur’s on-demand travel and expense management services,” said Mr. Juneau. ”Indeed, we are seeing increased interest and rapid adoption of our services throughout the entire Nordic region. To meet this growing demand, Concur has recently set up a local office in Stockholm. This regional presence will enable Concur to continue delivering world-class service to clients like Ericsson, IKEA and AMO as we help them drive costs out of their businesses.”
