The SAP purchase of Concur makes a great deal of sense for SAP. Focused on the enterprise market and in need of cloud solutions, SAP had purchased a few other Cloud ERP solutions, including Ariba and Fieldglass. With Concur, SAP will now have an enterprise-level travel and expense solution to sell to the majority of its 261,000 customers that do not use Concur today. SAP reports less than 30% of SAP customers currently use Concur. While the Cloud is an attractive alternative to on premise software, no company wants to be handed a Cloud platform with siloed Cloud applications in terms of their user management, workflow engine and policy management. These are issues that SAP and Concur will have to focus their energies on solving.
What does this mean for mid-market Microsoft Dynamics customers considering Concur’s software and Ariett Purchase and Expense? There is a significant opportunity for Ariett, as mid-market customers pause to think about their future Concur service level and price points.
Ariett delivers more value with the release of its mobile first expense reporting solution designed for the corporate mid-market. Focused on controlling costs with automated business solutions, midmarket customers should not have to pay for enterprise capacity when it is unnecessary. Midmarket customers expect a suite of products built from the ground up to work together – out of the box.
