The SAP Concur integration solution facilitates data synchronisation between your SAP Concur platform and another business system to automatically create journal entries or invoices in your ERP or accounting system when an expenses or payment reference workflow has completed in SAP Concur. This then enables workflows to be extended from SAP Concur into an ERP or Accounting system where the invoice payment process can be completed.
Based on our experience, here are some of the common scenarios that lead to SAP Concur integrations:
To come up with an integration approach, our first task is to understand the business and technical goals we want to achieve.
To better understand the need for integration and the challenges involved , consider the following questions:
Answering these questions will help to understand business goals and design an integration framework that accelerates implementation and ease the ongoing support.
Concur support mainly 2 integration approaches : by delivering flat files and/or utilising web services (APIs) for integration. Based on the type of integration use cases, either real-time or batch, APIs or files based integration would be used.
SAP Concur APIs allow clients or partners to access data and functions within the SAP Concur product ecosystem. Through the use of these exposed endpoints and functions you can solve a vast array of different business issues and reporting needs such as:
Most iPaaS offerings ( Dell Boomi, Mulesoft, Informatica Cloud) provide pre-built Concur connector that are ready to use, which utilises Concur APIs in the background. These connectors are pre-packaged cloud-to-cloud connectors with easy-to-use and flexible mapping functionality.
Another out-of-the-box approach to Concur integration is utilising Concur SFTP, which can be used for both inbound and outbound flat -file integration. This approach is mainly used for bulk data imports as well as exports.
Electronic files are exchanged at Concur hosted FTP site, using PGP encrypted FTPS or SFTP. Concur SFTP works as either a source or a target within cloud integration and also interacts with other applications.
