Deloitte announces new app through SAP® Concur® collaboration to ease business travel and remote work compliance
London - 11 November 2020
Deloitte is today announcing the upcoming release of the Deloitte - Travel Ready app in the SAP® Concur® App Center. This is an extension of the working relationship developed through the SAP Deloitte partnership. SAP Concur is the world’s leading brand for integrated travel, expense, and invoice management solutions.
The Deloitte – Travel Ready app, connects the Deloitte platform with Concur® Request, Concur® Travel and Concur® Expense and will help make compliance for both cross-border business travellers and remote workers easier by creating a consolidated approval, travel booking and compliance assessment process. The app supports compliance with matters related to travel restrictions, visa and work permits, income tax, EU cross-border posted worker rules, social security, payroll taxes and corporate taxes, and entity establishment risk. This new solution will assist in improving the employee experience and will help make conducting cross-border business easier.
Many employers are using this unique period to prepare themselves and their compliance programmes for when business travel takes off again and are evaluating how those programmes and tools can support not only traditional business travellers but also new remote working populations. Managing cross-border compliance can be difficult for businesses, but the Deloitte - Travel Ready app makes the complex, simple - with a focus on user experience with unparalleled functionality and breadth of coverage.
“I am tremendously proud of this app as it demonstrates our ability to combine the employee’s need for a simple and quick approval or booking process with a solution that meets the compliance needs of the corporate user in one straightforward process,” said Craig Muir, Deloitte Global GES lead partner. “In today’s world, remote working has become part of our new norm and we are seeing organisations using this time to ready their business travel compliance programmes for when travel resumes. The launch of this app is an exciting step in simplifying compliance, driving value and delivering an exceptional user experience to help businesses and their employees focus on what matters.”
