and invoices

visibility you need to manage your spending proactively.


The benefits of American Express, made even better.

With Concur Expense

Simplify how you handle expenses for your
employees with your American Express® Corporate
Card and Concur Expense.

With Concur Invoice

Pay eligible suppliers using your American Express® Business or Corporate Card right from within
Concur Invoice by enrolling in the American
Express B2B Payments App.

Eliminate the Need for Paper Receipts.

Employees use the Card and get a reminder to snap a photo of the receipt.2 They upload it with the SAP Concur app and it’s automatically imported and filed into the expense report.

Save Time Through Automation.

With digitized workflows and automated payments you can streamline the reconciliation process. That means your team can spend less time chasing down approvals and paper invoices, as well as reduce manual
input and coding errors.

Reduce Time-Consuming Busywork.

Expense reports are automatically created and stored in the cloud so they’re faster and easier to complete and submit, and less likely to have errors.

Get More Control.

Since suppliers receive a virtual Card number that’s only good for the invoice and date you specify, your American Express payment provides added security.

Categorize Expenses Automatically.

Card expenses are categorized using your company’s general ledger and expense codes.

Increase Visibility into Spending.

Access key details on suppliers, transactions, and payments from the American Express B2B Payments App.

Save Money and Spot Trends.

American Express’ exclusive Program Optimization reports provide in-depth expense detail. With the detailed data of these quarterly reports, it’s possible to more easily spot spending trends and savings opportunities.*

*Program Optimization reports are available only to Corporate clients enrolled in Concur® Expense, have 10 or more employees, at least $250,000 in spending and transactions occurring on at least 60 days during the quarterly reporting period.3

Gain Payment Flexibility and Rewards.

Make payments promptly, yet still get the benefit of having more cash on hand until your American Express payment is due. Continue to earn your Card’s rewards
like you normally would.4
