Concurforce leverages the Salesforce Platform and Concur T&E Cloud to tap the power of social, mobile and open technologies, delivering innovation to help clients maximize each and every business trip.
Concur (NASDAQ: CNQR), a leading provider of integrated travel and expense management solutions, recently unveiled Trip Maximizer for Concurforce, the Concur travel and expense management offering designed for Salesforce. Trip Maximizer enhances the entire process of planning, booking and conducting business travel for employees who need to visit with prospects and clients in the field. Trip Maximizer will be previewed at salesforce.com’s Dreamforce and is expected to be generally available for all Concurforce clients by the end of 2012. Trip Maximizer will also be available to Concur clients using the Concur Connector for Salesforce.
With Trip Maximizer, a salesperson using Concurforce can start a business trip by simply opening a record within Salesforce Sales Cloud, enter initial travel plans, and automatically be shown recommendations for additional sales opportunities to visit during the trip. With just a few clicks, the selected opportunities are added to the traveler’s calendar and itinerary, eliminating countless emails and toggling between applications. And because the typical salesperson is busy enough preparing for those meetings, Trip Maximizer provides dining recommendations and automatically shares itinerary details with relevant colleagues through Salesforce Chatter, enhancing collaboration and supporting the needs of the enterprises.
Concurforce is specifically tuned to the needs of the heaviest business travelers and most frequent expense report filers – those employees in the field sales and client service functions. Since these employees are also the real drivers of revenue and client satisfaction, helping them become more productive – while also enabling their companies to measure the true cost of client acquisition and client service – represents a new opportunity for today’s enterprises.
Concurforce is built on the Salesforce Platform, the world’s leading cloud platform for social and mobile business apps, and leverages the market-leading travel and expense management services of the Concur T&E Cloud. The application delivers a simple and familiar experience for Salesforce users, saving them time and improving productivity. Concurforce allows users to:
- Collaborate on business trip details in Salesforce Chatter, the leading enterprise social network;
- Use itineraries from TripIt, a leading mobile trip organizer, to create and submit accurate, in-policy expense reports from within Sales Cloud;
- Review and approve expense reports right from their Android, BlackBerry, iPad and iPhone or from the Web; and
- Gain real-time visibility into T&E spend and instant insight into costs associated with sales opportunities and service engagements, helping them improve margins and manage the cost of sales.
