Concur integrated Google Maps into its travel and expense solution for business travelers to help them manage their mileage.
The integration, part of a release of several new features for Concur Travel & Expense, is designed to enable road warriors and corporations to enhance their management of mileage expenses. Among the tool's new features:
- Users can select start, end and waypoints on a Google Map for each mileage expense.
- Commute distances can be subtracted from the mileage expense.
- Audit rules point to whether the mileage has been edited to exceed the amount calculated, and whether the commute distance has been deducted.
- Users can access a Most Recently Used list to retrieve stored locations.A per-car configuration can also be used.
Concur also rolled out a series of new airline-ancillary fee expense types, along with dashboards and reports to help corporations process the torrent of new optional services, from bag fees and upgrades to lounge access and onboard meals.
To ensure business travelers adhere to corporate travel policies, the new airline-ancillary fee reporting tool enables organizations to define their own audit rules.
Concur also introduced a Best Practices Dashboard, which measures current client configurations for Concur Travel & Expense against best practices in control & compliance, as well as mobility, the company says.
