The Bellevue-based company has added more than 30 new partners to its App Center to offer apps that integrate with the company’s Travel, Expense and Invoice products. The announcement today comes as a part of Concur’s annual Fusion conference in New Orleans, with 2,000 people expected.
The new products in Concur’s App Center include authentication services through Microsoft Azure Mobile Directory, mileage reimbursement reports through MileIQ and suggestions for food and culture destinations through Trover.
App Center integration allows users to share details from Concur’s services with other apps that connect to its platform. That way, it’s possible for a traveling executive to link an itinerary with apps like Seattle-based Trover to easily access information that would be harder to find otherwise. Trover CEO Jason Karas said in a press release that the partnership is a valuable one for his company, since it will provide a better opportunity to tailor Trover’s recommendation service to Concur’s clientele.
In addition, the company said today that its ExpenseIt app for iPhone and Android has digitized more than 250,000 receipts for its users. The company has also served more than 25,000 reminders to users of American Express cards who signed up to get notifications to scan their receipts whenever they spent money using their card.
Concur recently reported better than expected earnings for the first quarter of 2014, with revenues of of $169.5 million. That financial performance earned high praise from “Mad Money” host Jim Cramer, who called out the company’s relative lack of competition as a reason why he feels optimistic about its chances.
