Challenges facing business travellers

As per a recent SAP Concur survey conducted amongst 500 Indian business travellers:

  • Thirty-one percent were stressed about filing expense reports after a business trip in the middle of a busy workday.
  • Owing to the existing gap in business travel expense management solutions, the survey also revealed that 32% of employees lost over Rs 7000 of their personal money on a travel related business expense that wasn't reimbursed.

The offering from HDFC Bank and SAP Concur solutions is designed with such user challenges in mind, ensuring that business travellers have a stress-free and productive trip.

The key benefits of the partnership include:

  • Upfront visibility and control of spends: All business spends incurred by an employee are populated in Concur Expense to ensure faster claim submission, processing, and reimbursement in compliance with the organisation's policies.
  • Cashless payment and digital claim process: Minimizes the need to carry cash and delivers efficiency and accuracy in employee reimbursements.
  • Integrates partner apps: Provides the advantage of a connected ecosystem by leveraging partnerships with Uber for Business,, Airbnb, Hilton and other partners.
  • Global Wi-Fi: Complimentary Wi-Fi services across airports, flights, and restaurants that will keep travellers connected without worrying about roaming fees, unsecured connections, or configuring SIMs.
  • Complimentary lounge program: Provides several complimentary lounge visits at international and domestic airports.
