Why the Change?
UNF selected Concur to replace its current Travel & Expense application. Ellucian, the vendor of our current system, would no longer support the Travel & Expense module of Banner. Additionally, the satisfaction faculty and staff had with T&E was not at the desired level. Concur is used to request travel authorization, book travel, process travel reimbursements, and reconcile P-Card transactions. Travelers and approvers use Concur’s mobile app to book a trip, capture receipts, create and submit expense reports and approve travel. Concur enables better integration, easy report creation, and configurable dashboards.
There is a now a travel agency, World Travel, to help with booking flights, hotels, car rentals, assist with any unexpected travel changes, etc. This is especially benefit group and athletics travel. Another advantage is improved compliance. The University will have better data on when travel is taking place and what is spent to travel. This data should provide the travel agency with leverage to negotiate better pricing and benefits with the airlines. When our students travel, there is improved “Duty of Care”, which enables the University to know where students are so we can communicate with them and reroute them should a risky situation develop.
