More integration news this morning as Concur announces a deal to combine its travel and expense management technology with salesforce.com's cloud computing and CRM services.
The result is concurforce, a piece of kit that is accessible from handheld devices and the web and allows frequent business travellers to manage their travel and expenses, interact with colleagues via salesforce chatter and access itineraries via TripIt.
Concur acquired TripIt earlier this year in a deal worth up to $82 million and has since been beavering away on integration.
The idea is that road warriors will save time by having access to the travel and expense, social and sales and CRM technology all on the go thus making them more productive.
Concurforce is not expected to be available until later this year but it is another sign of the demand from the business travel sector for social tools originally associated with the leisure sector.
A study released last week from the American Red Cross showed just how reliant people have become on social media networks for news and information, especially in an emergency.
The Concur Salesforce deal is interesting in light of ongoing debates on corporate strategy on social media as well as ongoing mobile and data security issues.
