We have made it to the end of our project to implement the Concur travel system at Cornell! Now that all faculty and staff travelers and travel arrangers are using Concur, here are some things you'll need to do in the new year:
Cornell business travelers now get discounted hotel rates from Marriott in New York City and Ithaca and lower rental rates from Avis Car Rental and Budget Rent a Car. Cornell also has agreements with other travel vendors, offering discounted airfare and other personal travel discounts.
After an eighteen-month pilot project, SAP Concur, a cost-effective, leading-edge, web-based, mobile-enabled travel solution, will be implemented campus-wide over the next twelve months, starting with a group of eight units in January.
Marriott Hotels & Resorts has announced that its guest reservation system has been compromised, potentially exposing guests’ personal information. The data breach affects Marriott’s Starwood reservation system, which includes St. Regis, Sheraton, and W Hotels.
A new feature of Concur called Expense Assistant is designed to improve and accelerate your expense reporting experience. Expected to be released to Cornell users later this year, Expense Assistant automatically adds your Available Expenses to an expense report for your trip.
First, ExpenseIt, the mobile app used to submit receipts with optical character (text) recognition (OCR) technology, will be integrated with Concur Mobile in July, streamlining the Concur mobile app experience.
If you’ve been looking for a way to minimize flight hassles and simplify trip reporting, TripIt Pro is worth your time. Once you’ve experienced the power and convenience of its mobile app, you might not want to leave home without it.
