Amadeus and Concur announce global partnership



Amadeus has formed a technology and marketing partnership with expense management specialist Concur.



The deal will see the integration of travel bookings from Amadeus e-Travel Management into Concur Expense while Amadeus distribution technology will be integrated into Cliqbook Travel, Concur’s self-booking tool.



The partnership is also expected to bring increased travel management functions to mobile phones and other digital devices.



Amadeus vice president of business travel Albert Pozo said: “This will enhance mobile opportunities.


“We have been providing the approval and management of information but that will be enhanced now with pre-expense management services. It will tie up the different aspects of travel management on the mobile.”


He also said the partnership would provide new customer opportunities for the distribution giant as well as serve some of its existing large customers.



Concur senior vice president and general manager for Europe Barry Pagett said travel management companies had been looking for an end-to-end solution for a long time.



“This gives them access to unprecedented functionality and allows them to talk to their customers about efficiency gains,” he said.
