Choosing the most appropriate Expertise and Care package will help you gain more value from your spend management solution and continually strengthen your business performance.
Why Should You Consider Additional Support Services?
Before we delve into the services available, you might be asking why you need extra support. The answer is that SAP Concur is in the business of increasing efficiencies and freeing up employees to do the work they enjoy and that brings your organisation more value. It’s what all our solutions provide in various ways and our support network is no different.
When you need support or guidance, we will be there to assist you. It might be that:
- The economic landscape is putting new financial demands on your business
- A hybrid workforce requires new expense options
- Your business is evolving quickly into new regions
- You need to make some minor systems updates
- You need to meet higher sustainability goals
As an administrator you might not have the time, expertise or bandwidth to handle these issues efficiently and effectively. With the three levels of support available, you’ll get a range of self-help resources, dedicated support teams and specialised services, enabling you to efficiently manage and resolve any issues you encounter. Let’s look at each one in turn.

It includes all the features of Essential Care, along with a dedicated support team including an Advanced Care Consultant who will provide personalised assistance and guidance – via phone, email or chat – extended support hours, priority handling of support tickets and access to advanced technical resources.
Complex and Strategic: SAP Concur Select Care
This is the option you need to get the absolute best out of your solution. For users with complex configurations, larger user bases or strategic business requirement, Select Care is a proactive and consultative option.
It includes all the features of Essential Care and Advanced Care, along with personalised support from a designated Select Care Manager who has a deeper understanding of your business needs. Select Care also offers proactive monitoring, quarterly business reviews and access to exclusive events and training resources.
