Unily and SAP Concur integration
Integrating applications with Unily Connect lets you cut through the noise created by multiple systems, streamlines logging in by having a single sign-on, and provides one highly polished, consistent user experience across your entire digital landscape. Below we highlight some of the potential benefits for your business when integrating Unily with SAP Concur.
Rapid, easy expense management
A survey of US workers by Conferma has shown that 38% of employees regularly use their own money to pay for work-related expenses. This situation can lead to a severe drop in employee satisfaction and productivity while also causing financial problems for individuals. It's clear, then, slow systems and delays in the processing and payment of expenses are simply unacceptable in today's workplace.
You can build a handy HR hub for all your people in your Unily digital workplace, complete with essential HR information and tools, from must-know policies to timesheet submissions and holiday approvals. Go one step further, by integrating with SAP Concur, and offer your people a quick way of submitting expense reports.
Managers can also keep on top of expenses by setting permissions and creating an approval process through integration. With Unily, you can target different personas, so that managers can report on the expenses sent through SAP Concur for complete visibility into spend.
Create SAP Concur travel requests directly in Unily
With business travel predicted to be worth $1.6 trillion in 2020, your consultants, executives and sales teams are no doubt busy preparing to see clients. However, according to ACTE, 80% of corporate travel managers feel that a universal system of overseeing travel management metrics would improve corporate travel. In a highly competitive marketplace, when opportunities appear, you need to ensure you're at the right place at the right time - that's where a robust travel booking solution comes in.
You can create a dedicated landing page for your sales team in Unily so they have access to all the tools and news they need. Integrate with SAP Concur, and you'll be able to add a tile near the top of the page for the creation and submission of travel requests.
Traveling to see clients all over the world can be a complicated process, with different approval mechanisms, price structures, flights, and hotel options. SAP Concur has a comprehensive inventory, so with integration to Unily, anybody in your digital workplace can now save time and money when booking business travel.
Reduce IT services overheads with SAP Concur invoice management
With the size of the IT service management market projected to grow to $8.78 billion by 2021, it's essential to get the very best tools to help you manage and cut down on IT services overheads. By integrating SAP Concur into Unily, you can now rapidly access and manage your IT invoices, alongside managing your other IT requests, in a dedicated IT services hub.
