BELLEVUE, Wash., Aug. 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Concur (Nasdaq: CNQR), the leading provider of integrated travel and expense management, will be highlighting innovative TMC solutions in their booth at GBTA 2013 Convention in San Diego. As part of Concur's vision to enable The Perfect Trip – linking TMCs, travelers and suppliers together via the open platform of the Concur T&E Cloud – these TMC partners are leveraging Concur's platform to deliver exceptional service to their clients. The Concur preferred partners showcasing solutions in the Concur booth include Adelman Travel, Altour, Gant Travel, and Travel Leaders. These inaugural members of the new Concur preferred partnership program, along with Travel Incorporated and MeritBiz are ushering in a new era of innovation for their respective clients. Learn more about how these TMCs are adopting the Concur T&E Cloud platform at booth #1637.
Adelman will be the first TMC to deploy Concur Risk Management in North America providing comprehensive location-based services with advanced mobile communications and messaging capabilities. Displayed in the Concur booth, Concur Risk Management leverages the conTgo technology and is fully integrated on the Concur T&E Cloud platform. The Concur Risk Management service allows TMCs or corporate managed travel programs to provide real-time duty of care services, including risk management and messaging, not only to traveling employees, but to in-office employees as well.
"Adelman has been interested in the conTgo technology for some time and was quick to reconnect with them once they were acquired by Concur," said Ivan Imana, Chief Information Officer of Adelman Travel. "With new capabilities and a focus on mobility, we felt this was the right time. The Adelman customer base has become more global, and Concur Risk Management allows us to better service our global clients by providing a solution that goes beyond standard security."
"TMCs represent a critical component of the partner ecosystem in enabling The Perfect Trip vision," said Tim MacDonald, EVP of Platform and Data Services at Concur. "Our partners are joining Concur in delivering the reality of the Perfect Trip for corporate travel management programs globally. Everyone wins - the traveler, the corporate travel manager and their Travel Management Company."
