We are excited to announce Concur’s new and improved user interface, as well as major enhancements to the approval model for your Concur expense reports and statement reports. These updates are set to launch on Monday, January 5, 2015.
Previews of Concur’s new look and feel are available now. While most of your travel booking and expense reporting activities will feel familiar, efforts to modernize elements of these pages will make these processes simpler and more intuitive. In particular, the revamped “My Concur” page will display the items that require your attention in a clear and accessible format.
The new cost object approval model for statement reports and expense reports will mirror the way your Prime Financials transactions route for approval today—by dollar amount and the department ChartField(s) being charged. Because individuals often incur expenses on behalf of more than one department (e.g. faculty members with cross-disciplinary responsibilities or students who participate in activities for multiple organizations), cost object approval ensures that transactions are routed to approvers authorized for the department(s) incurring the expenses. It ensures that no charges post to your financial statements without review by authorized individuals in your department. This new workflow will be applied to expense reports and statement reports submitted for approval on and after January 5, 2015. For more information on the cost object approval model, check out our FAQs or contact the Financial Service Center at firstname.lastname@example.org or 609-258-3080.
