9 August 2016, India: Concur, the world's leading provider of integrated travel and expense management solutions, today announced a new partnership with Didi Chuxing, the world's largest mobile transportation platform, to further simplify the expense management process in China. Concur users who request a ride using Didi Chuxing can now link ride transactions to their Concur account with just a click, creating a seamless experience.
With this integration, Didi Chuxing users can simply connect their account with Concur, select their trip type and begin booking rides. Once travelers arrive at their destination, an e-receipt will be automatically sent to the linked Concur account, where they can directly manage ride expenses and submit for reimbursements.
“China is the third largest international market when it comes to Concur business traveler spend, and we’re seeing a dramatic increase in Didi Chuxing usage which is contributing to that spend,” said Mike Eberhard, president of global distribution at Concur. “This integration not only simplifies the expense reporting process for the growing number of Concur users booking rides with Didi, but also helps travel managers and administrators effortlessly keep track of employee spend.”
“Didi Chuxing Enterprise has a systematic and data-driven ride hailing and management service in China, while Concur is the leader in enterprise travel and expenses management. This partnership will increase the international recognition of Didi Chuxing’s convenient and efficient transportation solutions and enhance Concur users’ travel experience,” said Mr. Derek Du, vice president and general manager of enterprise business unit at Didi Chuxing.
Didi Chuxing is currently available in the Concur App Center.
