It can be quite a challenge to keep track of and manage all the various expenses you incur when traveling for business. You have to deal with different currencies, note what you are spending money on at each step of the way and make sure that you keep things clear so you can explain how these expenses were necessary for conducting business.
How much was that cab ride after the dinner meeting where you closed a big deal? Did you split the check or did they pay? Instead of rifling through your pockets, you can access the details instantly in digital form.
Many business travelers have come to rely upon the Concur Travel, Receipts Expense Reports app, which the developers recently updated. Concur is great for managing all your business expenses and receipts on your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch and is designed to free you from the drudgery of shuffling through countless scraps of papers to support your expense reports.
You can use it to import information from your credit cards and take pictures of your receipts for digital storage and organization. People find it convenient for doing tasks such as submitting expense reports as well as approve them. If you need to see what you spent in your room, the app makes it easy to itemize your hotel charges.
In town for a series of conferences? You can use the Concur app to instantly add meeting and event attendees.
Besides helping you manage expenses, the app will let you book hotels and airfare, manage your itineraries for hotels, flights and restaurants.
Be advised that this latest Concur app version 9.18.0 is slated to be the last one that will be compatible with the iOS operating system version 6. For future updates, you will first need to upgrade your iOS to version 7.0 or later, so take this into account as you determine your future expense report management requirements.
While organizing travel expenses may be your least favorite thing to do when globetrotting on behalf of your company, it’s a task that you can accomplish much more easily when you take advantage of the latest in smartphone technology and an upgraded app like Concur.
