Texas Southern University employees will have two new resources available to them in the coming months when they’re traveling on university business.

The University has selected Concur as its new travel and expense management program for employees and Almeda Travel as its travel management company.  Concur is a leading global provider of integrated travel and expense management services and solutions and a leader in higher education travel and expense solutions. Almeda Travel, an industry leader in travel management, helps organizations improve the travel experience.

In Concur, employees will be able to book travel from a smartphone or desktop browser and automatically capture itineraries and credit card charges. This information then feeds the expense report, which is nearly complete at the conclusion of the trip.

In addition, the Concur mobile travel and expense app makes it easy to change a flight, book a hotel or get a rental car while traveling. And travelers can snap photos of paper receipts, attach those images to their expense reports and not have to retain them.

For those traveling internationally, the program also supports multiple languages and currencies, automatically calculating the currency exchange rate.

More information about the services of Concur is available in the video below

Pilot testing will begin in Phases, beginning September 2019 and throughout December 2019 with a full campus deployment launch next Spring 2020.
