The biggest benefit in terms of integrating Concur with the CliqBook would be in terms of productivity. That the employees would be able to indeed have those travel-related needs integrated into Concur, and it would give them big benefits that they don’t need to input their transactions on the itinerary back into Concur again. The biggest benefit which comes out of this global deployment is in terms of the management information reporting. That now we can have those reportings available for the real management, and we can do better analysis of the expenses which are incurred.
