Concur is piloting a chat bot for users of messaging tool Slack.

The travel and expense management firm said with its new Bot for Slack, users can interact with Concur in a conversational way and send requests or questions about travel plans and manage expenses.

Slack is a group messaging service with four million users that enables teams to organise conversations, coordinate projects and topics, and interact in real-time through “channels”.

Users on the Slack ‘channel’ can use the bot to submit receipts, obtain a summary of expense reports, create quick expenses and see travel itineraries.

Concur’s parent company SAP has plans to integrate bots into other products.
