We are writing to share information about pending updates to the Concur Travel and Expense system.
On April 22, 2020, UConn implemented the Concur Travel and Expense Module, an industry leading platform that supports best practices in the authorization and processing of travel and non-travel out-of-pocket expenses. Subsequent to this, the project team has pursued capabilities and service changes that will enhance the customer experience:
- Anthony Travel will become our new Travel Management Company (TMC). In business for over 20 years, Anthony Travel is a leader in university domestic and international, group, and athletic travel. As a part of this relationship, UConn will have a dedicated, onsite agent to assist our community with their travel plans.
- Concur will become our system for managing student travel and expense reporting. Starting October 1, all authorized travel and virtual conference participation as well as non-travel out-of-pocket expense reports will be processed through Concur. For specific information on how to manage these activities, visit https://travel.uconn.edu/training-and-resources/. We will communicate details about this update directly to students.
- Concur will become the reconciliation tool for all university card products. Starting with the November statement, Pro-card transactions will be fed directly into Concur instead of creating a procurement card document in KFS.
In the coming months, you will see more communication pertaining to Anthony Travel, guest travel, duty of care, and training opportunities. Additional support information is also available on Travel Services’ website: travel.uconn.edu.
Please do not hesitate to contact the project (https://concurproject.uconn.edu/contact-us/) if you have comments, questions, or concerns.
