UNF has selected Concur to replace its current Travel & Expense application. Ellucian, the vendor of our current system, will no longer support the Travel & Expense module of Banner. Additionally, the satisfaction faculty and staff have with T&E was not at the desired level. Concur will be used to request travel authorization, book travel, process travel reimbursements, and reconcile PCard transactions. Travelers and approvers will be able to use Concur’s mobile app to book a trip, capture receipts, create and submit expense reports and approve travel. Concur will enable better integration, easy report creation, and configurable dashboards.
With the new system, there will be a travel agency, World Travel, to help with booking flights, hotels, car rentals, assist with any unexpected travel changes, etc. This will especially benefit group and athletics travel. Another advantage will be 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 will be 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.
A pilot began on Feb. 13, 2018 and the campus "go live" date is expected to be March 28, 2018. Training will be provided and faculty and staff can register for these classes beginning March 1. Please continue to check back to this page to view the most updated information.
