New Concur interface to debut with the new year

Concur, Vanderbilt’s online travel and expense system, will unveil a new look in January 2015.

Concur, Vanderbilt’s online travel booking and expense reporting system, plans to unveil a new look in January 2015. Concur made the changes to improve the user experience and modernize the application’s user interface.

“We believe these changes make Concur easier to use. The Disbursements team is already using (the new interface) and the transition has been seamless,” said Tony Grayson, Disbursements director. “The changes are intuitive.”

The improved user interface features “dashboards” that group functions and tasks together at the top of the page, and consolidates functions related to expenses on one screen. The “work-to-zero” feature makes it easier for users and approvers to keep track of active items.

Other improvements include:

  • Streamlined navigation;
  • Easy-to-find actions, alerts and notifications;
  • Improved matching of available expenses; and
  • Simpler viewing of receipts.

Online training and Q-and-A sessions on the new Concur interface will be available in January within The Learning Exchange (keyword CONCUR) through online modules. Quick reference guides will also be available on the Disbursements and Travel websites.
