Concur, a division of SAP that makes software that tracks business expenses, said today it has signed deals with Lyft, the on-demand car sharing service, and HotelTonight, the on-demand lodging startup.
Concur says it has seen total spend by its clients customers expensing Lyft increasing seven-fold between May 2014 and May 2015. HotelTonight says more than 40% of its customers have booked hotels for business travel.
The deal offers streamlined booking and reporting. Customers can access the HotelTonight app today in the Concur App Center, and the Lyft-Concur integration will be available soon. Tim MacDonald, executive vice president of travel at Concur, said:
“Our data shows half of business trips are booked less than two weeks out, which fuels the need for on-demand travel apps.
By partnering with companies like Lyft and HotelTonight, we’re advancing our commitment to innovation and extending the instantaneous benefits of on-demand services to business travelers, all while making that spend visible to travel managers wherever it happens.”
