The Division of Financial Affairs (DFA) hosted a "DFA Conversations" event February 28, at which they featured SAP Concur, Cornell's new travel system. Watch the following video presentation to learn more about Concur, its benefits and features, the travel and expense process, the pilot phase of the project, and what you can expect during implementation in your unit.
SAP Concur is now being implemented across campus, as a cost-effective, web-based and mobile-enabled travel planning solution that lets Cornell business travelers manage all travel-related tasks – from approvals to reservations to reporting and reimbursement – in one place. Learn more infrom Concur.
Concur was pilot-tested for 18 months with about 1,800 staff and faculty across 21 units. Feedback has been largely positive, and staff in DFA are working directly with departments to ensure a smooth transition for the entire campus.
“I believe the Concur system has simplified our travel processes for faculty and staff at ILR, not only on the front end in arranging trips but also in completing the reimbursement process,” said Joe Grasso, associate dean for finance, administration and corporate relations at ILR.
Said one Concur user in a post-implementation survey: “It’s faster for the traveler. They can do everything by way of their mobile device.” Said another: “Everything is in one place, organized and streamlined. I don’t have to think about categories for expenditures and I cut the paperwork process literally in half (or better).”
