Concur, a provider of integrated travel and expense management (T&E) services, has announced the availability of the integrated solution of Concur's T&E Cloud with NetSuite built using NetSuite's SuiteCloud Computing Platform. First announced at NetSuite's SuiteWorld event in May 2012 in San Francisco, this solution helps NetSuite customers reap the unique benefits of a specialized end-to-end travel and expense management solution delivered via Concur's T&E Cloud, by providing an easy to use UI for expense reports, import of credit card statements, enforcement of expense policies, corporate credit card support, mobile solutions, and links between travel and expense management.
With this Cloud-to-Cloud integration, customers can post completed and approved T&E expense reports directly into the NetSuite Employee Center, making comprehensive and accurate T&E spend data available through NetSuite's Accounts Payable and General Ledger services.

"The Cloud enables customers to choose best-in-class applications and services - like those from NetSuite and Concur - that deliver the most compelling value.
