We are excited to announce that Concur Expense will be launching an updated User Interface (UI) soon that will make processing Requests and Expense Reports (including CBS (ProCard), Travel, and Non-travel Expense Reports) quicker and easier. This new UI will Go Live to the entire UConn community on August 24th.
The new UI will include a cleaner and streamlined change of layout, which will offer a more intuitive and easier to navigate page. We encourage everyone to visit the user welcome page in Concur for more details about these exciting upcoming improvements.
As well, please visit the “New” Job Aids under Training and Resources (labeled NEW UX) available at travel.uconn.edu.
As always, our Travel and Card Service Center is here to help if you need additional assistance.
Thank you and Safe Travels!
