Singapore Airlines (SIA) has announced a collaboration and signed an agreement with multinational software company SAP SE in an effort to enhance corporate travel visibility.
Through the collaboration, SAP said that SIA will leverage its SAP Concur web service, its "ecosystem of connected travel-related apps". SAP acquired Concur Technologies in 2014 to provide travel and expense management services to businesses.
In the announcement of the collaboration, SAP said that SIA is the first Asia-based carrier to sign an agreement with SAP Concur. Concur TripLink, a service from the Concur web service, aims to streamline corporate booking processes and avoid potential issues caused by expense reporting and will aim to remove compliance issues from out-of-policy travel spend.
SIA senior VP of sales and marketing Campbell Wilson said: "Singapore Airlines is pleased to be the first Asia-based airline to join the Concur TripLink network.
"With this collaboration, our corporate clients can enjoy greater visibility over their travel and more personalized products and services, enhancing the experience Singapore Airlines is already famous for."
The global Concur TripLink network comprises of 28 partners across airlines, hotels, rail and rental car providers and currently has more than 7.5 million travelers using Concur TripLink, SAP stated.
