britishairways_21686541483863_thumbConcur, the world’s leading provider of integrated travel and expense management solutions and services, announced their  partnership with the UK and Spain’s largest international airlines, British Airways and Iberia. The partnership will enable mutual customers to capture business travel bookings being made directly on British Airways and Iberia channels via TripLink.

 

 

 

By integrating the airlines’ channels with Concur TripLink, the companies’ mutual customers can improve both policy compliance and duty of care efforts – in particular through the ability to apply policy when employees book directly on ba.com, Iberia.com or send their British Airways or Iberia itineraries to TripIt.

 

 

 

“Duty of care responsibilities are greater than ever for companies today. Knowing where employees are and having the ability to reach them is a key priority for many businesses,” Mike Eberhard, president for Concur, says: “By integrating Concur TripLink with UKs and Spain’s leading global premium airlines, we are now able to solve a massive duty of care challenge for our customers on a global scale.”

 

 

 

TripLink is the first solution of its kind to extend the benefits of a managed travel programme to direct supplier bookings. This allows businesses to:

 

 

 

 

Adam Daniels, Chief Commercial Officer, at British Airways, said: “In today’s fast-paced mobile and data-driven world, it is more important than ever before for companies to oversee their employees’ travel bookings and expenses. By integrating with TripLink we are offering this capability to a wide range of companies, regardless of how they book.

 

 

 

Marco Sansavini, Chief Commercial Officer, at Iberia, said: “By partnering with Concur, we’re helping bring Iberia’s bookings into view. Now corporate customers can properly reach their travellers, better control costs and – most importantly – fulfil their duty of care to employees.”
