Concur® has been chosen as SMU’s new electronic travel and expense management solution, as announced by Lyle Dean and Executive Sponsor Marc Christensen and the OE2C Travel and Entertainment Committee in a meeting on Wednesday, Oct. 1, 2014. The initiative committee would like to thank the faculty, staff and students who provided input and attended the finalist demonstrations in early September.
Based on feedback received from across campus and from consultation with peer and aspirant universities, Concur® emerged as the best option for SMU, according to the committee’s report. The associated tools offer “an absolute, integrated, and tailored solution for easier management of travel, expense and travel risk management obligations.”
The Travel and Entertainment Initiative Committee will continue its review of the University Travel and Entertainment Policy to build a simpler, more standardized process as the implementation of Concur® begins in the coming months. Additional suggestions and feedback from the SMU community are encouraged as this initiative moves forward.
