Singapore Airlines (SIA) has signed an agreement with SAP Concur to join its Concur TripLink web service, becoming the first Asia-based carrier to do so.
By connecting traveller, itineraries and receipts across multiple channels, the service provides businesses with a means to connect travellers, itineraries and receipts across multiple channels and apply travel policies to direct bookings. Organisations are also able to locate and communicate with their employees more quickly in the case of an emergency.
By identifying corporate bookings, SIA will be able to enhance the corporate booking experience through personalised products and services for businesses and their employees, as well as make expense reporting more convenient and reduce compliance issues arising from out-of-policy travel spend.
“Having Singapore Airlines on board the Concur TripLink network provides businesses with greater transparency and control over travel spend, while delivering an integrated and intuitive travel experience for employees,” said Scott Russell, president, SAP Asia Pacific Japan. “We are honoured to collaborate with SIA and look forward to helping more businesses in the region simplify travel and expense management and boost duty of care for their employees.”
More than 7.5 million travellers have access to Concur TripLink, with 28 partners – including airlines, hotels, rail and rental car providers – part of the global network.
