BCD Travel becomes largest global travel management company to earn TMC Elite partner level with SAP Concur

UTRECHT, The Netherlands – Nov. 19, 2019 – Leading travel management company BCD Travel has become the first of the Big 3 TMCs to earn TMC Elite partner status with SAP Concur, the world’s leading brand for integrated travel, expense, and invoice management solutions, BCD announced today. Prior to achieving TMC Elite partner status, BCD already was one of SAP Concur’s biggest reseller partners and one of its earliest partners with a relationship dating back to 2001.

With BCD’s TMC Elite partner level, clients benefit from a partner that is uniquely qualified with SAP Concur expertise, greater alignment at all levels within both organizations and unsurpassed optimization of SAP Concur’s platforms.

“BCD Travel already has many years of experience implementing, customizing and supporting SAP Concur tools. We continue to invest in our partnership, extending the value to our mutual customers,” said Wendy Prewitt, Vice President, Payment and Expense Integration, BCD Travel. “The TMC Elite partner level represents greater alignment at all levels within both organizations.”

SAP Concur software enables integration of front- and back-office systems and the export of data to third-party tools delivering a high level of fraud monitoring and protection. Their products provide the functionality to allow customers to meet GDPR requirements. BCD’s partnership with SAP Concur provides customers greater data capture, quality control assurance and automation, which translates into better customer service, productivity and efficiency. BCD’s customers enjoy access to the highly customizable Concur Compleat mid-office platform in all markets in which BCD operates.

The SAP Concur Partner Program for TMCs consists of three levels: TMC Elite, TMC Select and TMC Partner. TMC Elite partners have demonstrated the most comprehensive TMC aptitude among program participants.

“To achieve the TMC Elite level, BCD has proven their commitment to fully supporting the SAP Concur platform and ecosystem, ensuring our joint customers receive the best return on their investment in SAP Concur solutions. This includes a rigorous certification process for their supporting staff in order to deliver a fully optimized experience,” said SAP Concur’s Max Miller, Vice President, TMC Business Development.
