UPenn or University of Pennsylvania uses Concur to make the process easier for reimbursement of travel, entertainment and other expenses. Concur Expense is used across campus for all faculty, students and staff.
As explained on the PennTEM website, the system is used with the aim to streamline the travel booking and expense reimbursement processes for staff, faculty, and students who are conducting University business. On the website, it is also explained that the Penn Travel & Expense Management (TEM) team rolled out Concur Expense to each of the departments of the university, schools, and centers. It is the expense report submission module of the Concur Travel & Expense Management application.
The Concur system gives some benefits to the University community as you are able to read below according to the PennTEM site.
- The electronic process for the submission, review, approval, and payment of expense reports is streamlined.
- Reimbursement process becomes shorter.
- It reduces manual entry of expense data and it allows direct payment to the credit card company for expenses which are approved because of integration with the Penn Travel Card from Bank of America.
- It can report and track expenses well.
- Designated individuals can book travel and prepare expense reports on behalf of others.
- And many more.
