    New Expense Reimbursement System (ERS) user interface set for launch

    It’s finally here! In 2019 Concur announced that it would roll out a new user interface. This has been a long time in coming but the day has arrived, the user interface is changing on Oct. 1, 2022.

    Effective Oct. 1, 2022:

    A new User Interface (UI) will be in effect as of Oct. 1, 2022. This will result in a new look and feel.

    What this means for users:

    • The online Concur portal will have a “different look and feel” with the intention of making the interface more intuitive for users
    • There is no change in functionality, however, the way in which some tasks are completed in the new user interface (UI) may change
    • Several icons have been removed and replaced which results in a cleaner space, clearer text and guidance/directions
    • No impact to data, transactions, backend processes or reporting, only the Concur Expense UI has changed

    What exactly is changing?

    • Primary updates relate to:
      • Allocations
        • See everything you need to complete your allocations at once
        • Allows this to be done more quickly
      • Itemizations
        • More space to do your itemizations
        • Makes it possible to itemize room rates by night
        • Translates to quicker, simpler, and more accurate expense reporting
      • Attendees
        • Easily find the people or groups you’d like to add as attendee
        • Better view allows you to manage your attendee list for an expense at once
    • Other pages/activities with changes include:
      • Expense landing page
      • Expense reporting page
