Dayton, Ohio (PRWEB) October 17, 2014
SummitQwest, today announced the integration of SummitLink® with Concur® (NASDAQ: CNQR), the leading provider of spend management solutions and services. Offering apps with streamlined integration with Concur Travel, Expense and Invoice products, the Concur App Center delivers innovative functionality in key categories such as finance, regulatory compliance, enterprise identity, traveler productivity, travel management and much more. SummitQwest will provide Concur clients with the ability to use SummitLink® for chauffeured transportation reservations. This integration allows bookers to receive price quotes, book, and manage car service reservations real-time using one of the industry’s leading online reservation systems for car service.
The SummitLink® integration with Concur expedites the process of booking chauffeured transportation offering significant cost savings to clients through restricting service to preferred car companies. This restriction guarantees best rates, and using the SummitLink® Car Affiliate Network to access local providers the best global pricing. The SummitLink® Concur interface easily incorporates into the travel booking workflow decreasing the amount of time it takes to make a car service reservation while increasing the accuracy and transparency of the reservation process.
“We pursued a partnership with Concur because many of our clients are Concur users and were asking for us to integrate their car service reservation process with their travel reservation process,” said Jeff LaFave, Chief Executive Officer at SummitQwest. “This integration allows our clients to achieve all the benefits they have realized through the use of SummitLink® with the benefits of Concur through a full integration of the solutions, maximizing the value they receive from both.”
“We are focused on expanding our ecosystem of partners with innovative services for our customers and their employees,” said Tim MacDonald, EVP Platform & Data Services for Concur. “We are thrilled to be working with SummitQwest to help our customers to more seamlessly access chauffeured transportation.”
