Intesa (Kyndryl), SAP Concur, and Ccelera join forces to simplify and digitize expense management
Turin, 23 October 2023 – Intesa (Kyndryl), SAP Concur, and Ccelera, three well-established players in the IT landscape, have initiated a strategic collaboration to transform the expense management and receipts handling process, from creating travel requests to the crucial stage of preserving all documentation as required by regulations.
Through the integration of Intesa’s compliant preservation service with SAP Concur’s management software and Ccelera’s expertise as a gold partner of SAP, the entire process is fully dematerialized and automated. Expense reports and receipts are automatically “extracted” from the software, prepared for digital archiving, and preserved in compliance with regulations.
Expense reports, containing financial and organizational data related to employee reimbursement for their business trips, are classified by regulations as “fiscally relevant documents” and, as such, are subject to a mandatory retention period of at least 10 years. The collaboration between these three entities will allow companies already using SAP Concur’s management system to benefit from enhanced regulatory compliance, significantly streamlined processes, and more precise cash flow management.
“Innovation arises from collaboration,” says Giuseppe Mariani, General Manager of Intesa, a Kyndryl Company. “The synergy between Intesa, SAP Concur, and Ccelera will bring tangible benefits to companies seeking solutions to manage the entire life cycle of their employees’ expense reports. The automated compliant preservation of these fiscally relevant documents makes processes more efficient for both SAP and Intesa clients. This is the ultimate goal of technology. We hope this can be the beginning of a broader collaboration that simplifies the relationship between business management and regulatory compliance.”
“We are thrilled to announce this significant collaboration, representing a significant step towards end-to-end automation in expense management. Thanks to the integration of our platform with Intesa’s software and Ccelera’s expertise, we can offer an extremely efficient process. This initiative not only streamlines the process but also ensures regulatory compliance, providing customers with a smarter and more reliable way to manage their financial documentation,” added Andrea Piccinelli, Head of SAP Concur Italy.
“The completeness of cloud solutions is a crucial factor for businesses. With our expertise in SAP Concur and collaboration with Intesa, we can offer our customers an automated, fully digital, and paperless process that complies with Italian regulations,” explains Emmanuele Prudenzano, Partner at Ccelera.
Intesa (Kyndryl), SAP Concur, and Ccelera are excited to introduce this innovative solution in a free webinar scheduled for 26/10 at 11:30. You can find the registration link on this page.
