We introduced an innovative new feature called locate and alert. The administrator at your workplace will be able to monitor where you are on a map based on your itinerary and your mobile check ins and they may be able to broadcast messages to you giving you advice on what to do, how to find your way to the U.S. embassy and get a new passport and how to get out of dangerous situations. You could be in a troublesome situation for a whole variety of reasons and this is a very practical use of mobile technology.
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.
PopChips is a manufacturer of puffed potato snacks. On a monthly basis about 50 employees submit expense reports. But our old expense reporting process was a spreadsheet-based process where each employer would have to manually enter each expense item, attach the receipts them physically mail it to their approving manager, which could be in a totally different state from there. They then have to mail it to us, once it is finally approved for processing. Our employees used to complain about the time it would take to complete their expense report, as well as getting their money back.
Our old expense reporting process, it took a lot of time and was sort of horrendous. Us in the back end, pulling them together, aggregating the categories, and trying to make some sense of what we had coming in from the field. And I would often put it off for three months as just an awful experience. I had a couple Hallelujah emails when we decided to switch to Breeze, because they were waiting for something that would make their life easier.
BAE Systems is a global company. We have over 100,000 employees across the world. Historically, we had a legacy based system using paper, and people were sort of forward about doing their expenses, filling it out by hand and then posting it to the line manager, who may be sitting in another part of the country, or another country. When we set out on our journey to look at expense systems, we evaluated a number of market leading solution providers, which are European based or which are based in other countries.
