Travel Apps Galore at Concur Fusion

One of the hot topics at Fusion this year are the amazing collection of travel apps available for Concur users. From accounting and expense add-ons for managers to programs which make life easier for road warriors, there are many options to enhance the travel process. Two of our favorites are: CIBTVisas, provided by Teplis service partner CIBT which is one of the premier visa passport processing firms in the world. With this app, once a ticket is issued in Concur, a notification will be sent directly to the traveler within 24 hours advising them of specific documentation requirements for the destination/s booked. From there, the traveler can work with CIBT to satisfy their documentation requirements if needed. There is also a dashboard for the company’s travel manager to see who has been notified and who has responded (or ignored) the notification. While Teplis agents are happy to assist travelers with this information, having an automated solution ensures every traveler has the documents they need to travel. Another favorite: TripLingo, a translation program that allows the traveler to speak into their phone and hear the translated sentence (or there is a live translator option at additional cost). The program has a phrasebook & dictionary, cultural “crash courses” and offers free international calls when the traveler is on a WiFi network. Concur has over 100 apps in the app center and most can be integrated with Concur Travel and Expense, however it is not a requirement to have both T & E to get access to the apps.
