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.
