A fully automated, bi-directional integration with pre-packaged data connectors that leverages the existing business logic in your AP/Finance system, the Expense Connector provides data translations, configurable options, data validation as well as error handling, notifications and monitoring. The Connector loads the expenses from SAP Concur to the ERP (Ellucian Banner or Ellucian Colleague) through accounts payable. The invoices and credit memos are processed and then posted to the general ledger.

The Expense Connector supports employee reimbursements, cash advances, corporate credit card and/or travel card expenses as well as direct pay vendors. Implementation is simple with pre-defined mappings and functionally driven configuration questions to set up your processing options, data translations, and data validations. Your business continuity and performance is part of the package with built-in error handling, notifications and monitoring as well as on-going software-maintenance and support.
