Accountability and Excellence


The SAP Concur Advantage

  • Works seamlessly with UC Merced’s existing Connexxus platform (BCD Travel) for booking travel reservations.
  • Request module will replace the existing Pre-Trip Authorization System for major reservations such as airline flights, allowing the Financial Approver to ensure funds are available prior to travel.
