Concur for Slack
Need Travel & Expense Help? Our Bot is Here for You
Slack is a group messaging service that enables teams to share, post and respond to each other--and organize projects, topics and conversations through “channels.”
Labs created a Concur Bot for Slack to bring Concur to users, in Slack, where many customers spend several hours a day. With the bot, you can interact with Concur in a conversational manner, sending requests instead of pushing a series of buttons. This means you can type simple notes and instantly retrieve Travel & Expense information. For example, you can message @Concur to:
- – See Your Travel Itinerary: Type “itinerary” or “trip details” and your upcoming business trip information will be sent right back to you
- – Upload Receipts for Expensing: Upload receipts in your message to @Concur and these will be instantly saved to your Concur account
- – Create Quick Expenses: For basic expenses, write a simple note like “expense $15 for Uber” and the bot will automatically send this to your Concur account
- – View a Summary of Expense Reports: Type “report summary” and the bot will send an overview of your latest reports
