Concur to Launch New Small Business Expense Reporting Service in the Google Apps Marketplace

Concur Breeze takes the hassle out of expense reporting - free 30-day trial makes it simple for any small business to get up and running in minutes.

REDMOND, Wash., March 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Concur (Nasdaq: CNQR), the world's leading provider of on-demand Employee Spend Management services, today announced the launch of Concur® Breeze - the new online expense reporting service designed specifically for small businesses - with a free 30-day trial immediately available on the Google Apps Marketplace(TM), Google's recently launched online storefront for Google Apps(TM) products and services. Quick and easy to setup, Concur Breeze streamlines the entire expense management process by automatically creating expense reports using electronic data imported directly from both personal and corporate credit card charges. Concur Breeze makes even complex and tedious expense reporting tasks feel simple and fun. By automating the entire process and eliminating the need for paper receipts, spreadsheets, and lengthy reimbursement cycles, Concur Breeze reduces the time and hassle associated with expense reporting - simplifying bookkeeping and helping companies better track costs and manage cash.

"Concur Breeze is designed to specifically address the unique needs of small businesses looking to streamline their operations and improve efficiency with an automated expense reporting process," said Elena Donio, Executive Vice President & General Manager, Emerging Business for Concur. "With a free trial, affordable monthly fees, and an on-demand service that can be set up in minutes, Concur has removed all barriers to automation that previously existed within this market segment. Now, any small business can experience the benefits of automated expense reporting, powered by the same technology that's trusted by over 10,000 companies - including some of the largest companies in the world - and used by millions of employees around the globe."

"We are very excited to have Concur Breeze in the Google Apps Marketplace," adds Scott McMullan, Google Apps Partner Lead for Google Enterprise. "Through the Google Apps Marketplace, software vendors like Concur are helping us build a rich ecosystem of integrated apps that work seamlessly with Google Apps, allowing IT administrators to leverage the benefits of cloud computing and extend Google Apps to meet more of their business needs. We are happy to make expense reporting easier for the millions of Google Apps users who have embraced the cloud."

Concur Breeze is the first expense reporting solution designed specifically for the small business user that leverages Concur's market-leading technology and best-in class expertise. With capabilities to support a wide range of business needs, from expensing business travel through improving cash flow management, Concur Breeze is a low-cost way for any small business to automate and streamline the submission, review and approval of all business expenses - including T&E, office supplies, advertising, shipping, telecom and more. Concur Breeze is initially available for a 30 day free trial period and will subsequently cost $8 per user per month. Available immediately for customers in the US, Concur Breeze will reach additional geographies by the end of the calendar year.

A featured solution on the newly launched Google Apps Marketplace, Concur Breeze provides unique value to Google Apps clients by enabling them to launch a full Concur Breeze free trial with all of their employees automatically setup as users. Google Apps clients access Concur Breeze via secure single sign-on through Google universal navigation, and joint Google/Concur clients will see increasing value through deeper integration that will deliver enhanced expense data reporting and analysis into Google Apps, slated for 2010.

"The SMB market has traditionally been under-served when it comes to full-featured technology solutions that manage specific business processes," said Robert P. Anderson, Research VP with Gartner. "Cloud computing and on-demand services are increasingly becoming the de-facto standard to deliver technology and innovations in a cost-effective and scalable manner. Small businesses can benefit by taking advantage of features and functionality that until recently were only available to larger organizations."
