Deloitte has released a customised cross-border traveller-compliance app developed with SAP Concur, the professional services firm has announced.
Called Travel Ready, the app is available in the SAP Concur App Centre and provides a consolidated approval, travel booking and compliance assessment process for Deloitte travellers. The app helps cross-border business travellers and remote workers comply with regulatory requirements, including travel restrictions, visa and work permits, income tax, European Union cross-border posted worker rules, social security and payroll and corporate taxes, according to the company.
The company said it will enable corporate users "to understand and address their global compliance requirements related to remote workers and business travel based on travel approval/travel booking data, linking to Deloitte’s interactive Business Travel Advantage dashboards".
"This app...demonstrates our ability to combine the employee’s need for a simple and quick approval or booking process with a solution that meets the compliance needs of the corporate user in one straightforward process,” said Craig Muir, Deloitte global GES lead partner. “In today’s world, remote working has become part of our new norm and we are seeing organisations using this time to ready their business travel compliance programmes for when travel resumes.”
